Champions League Final Ban On Neymar For Swapping Shirts After PSG Win

Paris Saint-Germain won their way into their first-ever Champions League final after a 3-0 win over RB Leipzig in the semi-final on Tuesday night with goals from Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, and Juan Bernat.

But, according to The Sun, Neymar is likely going to face being banned for the final for swapping shirts after his side’s semi-final win over RB Leipzig.

The 28-year-old was spotted making the exchange with Marcel Halstenberg on the pitch, which is against Uefa rules.

Uefa’s 31-page ‘Return to play protocol’, issued earlier this month, states: “Players are recommended to refrain from swapping their shirts.”

It adds that non-compliance with the obligations “may lead to disciplinary measures in accordance with the Uefa Disciplinary Regulations.”

It had been reported before the return of the Champions League after lockdown that swapping shirts during the mini-tournament would result in a 12-day period of self-isolation.

UEFA’s official protocol is not thought to state that isolation would have to take place, but there are now fears about the Brazil superstar’s involvement.

There is no indication yet that he will be banned for Sunday’s game but fans and everyone else involved in the club could face an anxious few days to find out.
