Reports: UEFA reject Neymar’s attempt to get Barcelona thrown out of Champions League


Reports in the Spanish press claim that Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar attempted to get his former club Barcelona thrown out of the Champions League.

An article in Sport reports that the 25-year-old Brazilian urged UEFA to hand out the sanction due to the ongoing battle over an unpaid loyalty bonus that Neymar claims he is owed. It read:

“Neymar asked UEFA to ban Barcelona from the Champions League.”

However, the article also states that Neymar’s complaints fell on deaf ears.

“UEFA turned down the idea and although they responded to Neymar’s lawyers, they didn’t give the slightest thought to agreeing to it.”

Whatever the outcome of the ongoing legal battle, it’s pretty safe to say we can rule out an immediate expulsion from the Champions League.
