Neymar has been accused of rape by a woman in Paris and he has strongly denied the accusation, stating it was a set-up
According to a police report filed in São Paulo, the woman alleges that the attack took place in a hotel in the French capital, where Neymar plays for Paris St-Germain (PSG).
Neymar’s management put out a statement saying the footballer “completely repudiated” the accusation.
The footballer’s management said:
“We completely repudiate the unjust accusations and, above all, the exposure in the press of an extremely negative situation.”
The footballer’s father, Neymar dos Santos, told Band TV in Brazil on Saturday that “it is clear that it was a trap”.
“If public opinion is not cleared up, and if we can’t show the truth rapidly, this will snowball. If we have to show Neymar’s WhatsApps and the conversations with this girl, we will,” he added.
According to the police report, the unnamed woman told investigators in Sao Paulo that she met Neymar on Instagram.
