Neymar to wear Fortnite inspired boots in PSG Champions League clash vs Man City

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is set to wear a pair of Fortnite inspired Puma boots when he faces Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie on Wednesday.

The forward is involved in season six of Fortnite, with a Neymar skin now available for Battle Pass owners to unlock.

As part of his collaboration with the game, Neymar will wear the specially designed pair of boots against City as a way of promoting the game.

The design depicts Neymar's 'primal forms', which can also be unlocked in the game.

Speaking ahead of City's clash with PSG, Pep Guardiola heaped praise on the Brazilian international, saying: "I remember watching clips of Neymar and thinking this is the king of Santos.

"The players had their mouths open. If Neymar had stayed at Barcelona, they would have won two or three Champions League more. Him, [Lionel] Messi and [Luis] Suarez were the best up front. He makes football a pleasure.

"I try to sleep well last night and I slept when I was not thinking about the PSG players like that. We will try and stop them by defending as a team and playing well as a team.

"We will have to adjust something of course, but at the same time, it wouldn't make any sense to not to be who we are. It is normal to adjust, like we will against [Wilfried] Zaha against Crystal Palace."

PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino has also praised the forward, telling the Guardian : "It's so easy with Neymar because you don’t need to do too much. From day one, he’s been very open to work.
