PSG star and former Barcelona forward, Neymar, reportedly made a request that Barcelona should be expelled from the Champions League by UEFA.
The Brazil international, who left the Catalan club for the Ligue 1 giants in a world record transfer fee in the summer requested that Barcelona should be omitted from Europe’s elite club competition according to Spanish publication AS (h/t Sport)
However, the football governing body gave an emphatic response to the request from former Barcelona man. According to AS (h/t Sport): “According to their report, UEFA turned down the idea and although they responded to Neymar’s lawyers, they didn’t give the slightest thought to agreeing to it.”
AS sport further stated that the request from Neymar constitutes a part of a bitter divorce that transpired between the player and the club as both parties reported each other to FIFA.
