Brazilian soccer stud Neymar Jr. celebrated his 27th birthday with a lavish red-themed soiree at the Pavillon Gabriel in Paris.
Neymar’s metatarsal injury did not stop him from celebrating with friends and other celebs. In fact, Neymar delivered a tearful birthday speech, in which, he wished for a new metatarsal so he can return to the field.
“What I wanted the most as a birthday present today is a new metatarsal so I could be on the field fighting and doing what I love the most, which is playing soccer,” he said in a speech to the guests attending his party.
“It’s been very hard to be on crutches all this time. Every athlete knows how hard that is. They [his team-mates] are giving me all the strength possible to help me return as soon as possible.”
Dressed in all red, Neymar posed for photos with his crutches in-hand before taking to the stage for a singalong and dance with team-mates Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves.
