Gilette Brasil Global Tour

The Brazil international danced with team-mates Kylian Mbappe and Dani Alves on stage as he went for an all-red theme for his special day

Neymar celebrated his 27th birthday in some style, throwing a lavish party and dancing with his crutches as he continues to nurse an injured metatarsal that is keeping him out of action for PSG.

Indeed, the Brazilian will miss his side's crucial Champions League last 16 tie with Manchester United having suffered the injury to his right foot in a Coupe de France clash with Strasbourg in January.

The Ligue 1 club have predicted that Neymar will be out of action for around 10 weeks, meaning he'll miss both legs of the meeting with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, with the first of which taking place on February 12.

It hasn't stopped the Brazil international getting in the party spirit, however, with Neymar throwing a celebratory event to mark his 27th birthday in Paris on Monday.

Dressed all in 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.

Neymar hasn't forgotten what he's paid to do, however, tearfully ruing the injury that's currently keeping him sidelined.

"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."
