NEYMAR celebrated his 28th birthday three days early by throwing a lavish all-white bash in a Parisian nightlcub.
His boss Thomas Tuchel had labelled the celebrations a “distraction” because they came just two days before the the Ligue 1 side’s clash against Nantes.
Yoyo club – barely half a mile from the Eiffel Tower – was the site of the Brazilian superstar’s party – even though he does not turn 28 until Wednesday.
Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes were among the first to arrive, kitted out in the all-white theme.
Workers shielded the stars with umbrellas as they rocked up from 9pm local time, with one even using a squeegee on the pavement.
And the invites were not limited to PSG players, with former Old Trafford man Memphis Depay, who now plays for Lyon, also turning up.
Edinson Cavani – strongly linked with a move to David Beckham’s Inter Miami side – and Mauro Icardi were two of the superstar strikers in attendance, with Icardi’s wife Wanda Nara also there.
Marco Verratti, Marcin Bulka, Thiago Silva and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting all arrived dressed head-to-toe in white, as did Neymar Senior.
Mbappe did eventually turn up at 11.30pm, but only first going to Blaise Matuidi’s charity gala held at Disneyland.
Unsurprisingly, no one from the PSG hierarchy was seen going into the exclusive nightspot.
Tuchel made clear what he thought of the lavish celebrations, usually reserved for the end of the season.
The boss of the Ligue 1 leaders said before the do: “The substitution of Kylian or Ney‘s birthday are distractions.
“It gives the impression that we are not serious.
“It gives the impression that we are not 100 per cent focused and professional.
“But things are not either black or white. They become important when we talk about them a lot.”
