Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Neymar Jr has left for Brazil from Paris. The player has undergone self-isolation according to recent reports in France. Ligue 1 has been suspended until April fearing the coronavirus outbreak that has wreaked havoc across the world, particularly Europe.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien and ESPN, Neymar has exiled himself in Brazil amid the threat from coronavirus. It is reported that Neymar left the country last week, just before the whole of France went into complete lockdown. The player could return only when the situation is completely under control according to the reports.
PSG captain Thiago Silva is also believed to have flown back to Brazil. It is reported that the defending Ligue 1 champions permitted their players to undergo self-quarantine in the place of their choice. The Brazilian center-back has been spotted in Brazil since.
Meanwhile, his wife Isabella Silva, on social media, claimed that the virus was everywhere. But her husband was waiting for a notice to get back to work as quickly as possible. Thiago Silva’s wife also claimed that they were all upset about the current situation surrounding coronavirus. But she also hoped that this time too shall pass soon.
Amid coronavirus reports, there have been frequent questions related to the Brazilian. One common question pertaining to the winger is - 'Does Neymar have coronavirus?' However, there have been no such media reports that suggest that Neymar has contracted coronavirus.
