PSG pre-season

Brazilian star Neymar goes AWOL, doesn't report for PSG pre-season

Neymar's spokeswoman, Day Crespo, denied the allegation PSG was not informed, and added the player will return to France on July 15 as agreed "weeks ago."

PSG said in a statement that "Neymar was not in attendance at the agreed time and place" and this was "without the club's prior authorization."

PSG added, "It regrets this situation and will therefore take appropriate action."

Crespo told The Associated Press the club knew Neymar scheduled a video shooting on July 10 and an event at his institute three days later.
