PSG have travelled to Qatar for a four-day winter training camp – although Neymar has taken the chance to hit the beach in a very tight pair of trunks.
The Ligue 1 champions, owned by Qatar Sports Investments, make the trip to the Middle East every year for training and sponsorship reasons – and it’s an ideal chance for some winter sun.
Neymar grabbed the opportunity with both hands, posting a picture to Instagram of him on the beach by a perfect blue sea, wearing swimming shorts that left little to the imagination.
Earlier he had posted a snap to social media of him and his team mates travelling to Qatar – Neymar, accompanied by club and country team mate Marquinhos, pulling his suitcase with a pair of golden headphones around his neck.
Once out in the Middle East, the players were quick to hit the beach, Neymar posting a clip of him performing keepy-uppys on the sand with a PSG branded ball.
Another Brazilian star, Thiago Silva, posted a picture of him, Neymar, Gianluigi Buffon and Angel di Maria together, beaming as much as the sunshine.
The players also had club duties to perform – Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani spoke at a press conference, although the Uruguayan looked in holiday mode as he grinned and gestured his way through the questions.
While out in Qatar, the players will meet with sponsors and fans, as well as training as they aim to maintain their unbeaten league record this season.
According to Qatari newspaper The Peninsula, spectators will be invited to watch the players train on Wednesday afternoon at the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, one of the venues for the 2022 World Cup.
PSG are currently 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, with 16 wins and two draws from their 18 league fixtures so far.
They continued their march to another title on Sunday with a 3-0 victory at Amiens, and will return from Qatar for a home game against Guingamp next Saturday.
