Going for gold? Neymar meets Beckham in matching jackets


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 EUR222million.

And Neymar had a chance to get advice on representing PSG from former Manchester United and England winger Beckham - who ended his playing career in the French capital - 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 inspiration 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.
