Going for gold? Neymar meets Beckham in matching jackets

A current PSG star has met up with a former icon to have graced the books in the French capital, with the pair rubbing shoulders at Paris Fashion Week

Neymar demonstrated he is a stylish operator on and off the pitch as he compared fashion tips with ex-Paris Saint-Germain player David Beckham, with the star duo pictured wearing complementary gold jackets.

The Brazilian became the world's most expensive player when he joined PSG from Barcelona in August for €222 million.

And Neymar had a chance to get advice on representing PSG from former Manchester United and England winger Beckham when they met at Paris Fashion Week.

Neymar posted a photo of himself with Beckham to his 87.8m Instagram followers on Friday with the caption: "Good to see u legend."

Neymar had been whistled by PSG fans during an 8-0 demolition of Dijon in Ligue 1 on Wednesday, in which the Brazilian was in inspired form, scoring four goals.

The 25-year-old stepped up to take a penalty to complete the scoring at Parc des Princes despite the crowd chanting for Edinson Cavani - who had earlier drawn level with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on 156 goals for the club - to take the spot-kick.

Team-mate Thomas Meunier hit out at the jeers afterwards, branding them "disgraceful".

He said: "I understand the disappointment but I find this very disgraceful from the fans," he said when asked about the incident.

"If you want to boo him, why do you clap and cheer him when he goes past four defenders to score?"

Neymar appears to have shrugged off the incident, as he rubs shoulders with an iconic figure of the modern era.

Beckham brought the curtain down on his illustrious career with a spell at PSG, with the Ligue 1 title proving to be his last major honour in 2013.
