Neymar was sent off in the final minutes of PSG’s game on Sunday. He could now be able to attend Brazil’s Carnival for the 6th year running — even though it’s right in the middle of the soccer season.

Neymar has attended Brazil’s annual Carnival for each of the past five years, even though it lies right in the middle of the European soccer season.

Whether it be injury or suspension, the 28-year-old has always found a reason to return to his native country and celebrate at the world’s biggest street party. 

This year, he could once again be free to fly home after picking up a 92nd-minute red card in Paris Saint Germain’s 4-3 win over Bordeaux on Sunday.

Neymar picked up a second yellow after lashing out at Yacine Adli in stoppage time, meaning he is suspended for PSG’s game against Dijon next Saturday.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel defended Neymar after he was sent off, saying: “He is nervous and he reacts. It is human. He must not, but it is human. And the Bordeaux player does not even get a yellow card.”

Carnival, which celebrates the last few days of the Christian calendar before Lent, officially ends Tuesday, though many Brazilian cities, such as Sao Paulo, continue the festivities until the end of the week.

Before his suspension, Neymar told his 134 million Instagram followers he wouldn’t be attending this year’s event, hoping to avoid controversy.

“With immense joy I announce that I won’t be at the 2020 Carnival,” he said in a story on Friday, according to AS. “That way there won’t be any controversy this time.”

While with his former club FC Barcelona, Neymar was able to attend Carnival in both 2015 and 2016 because of suspension.

Since joining PSG in 2017, he’s been out of action with a variety of injuries, including a broken metatarsal, each year at the time of Carnival.
