- Story Text:World-record signing Neymar was treated to a grand welcome at Paris St Germain's stadium on Saturday (August 5) but must sit out the French club's Ligue 1 opener after his transfer was not registered in time.
PSG doubled the world record for a transfer fee this week when they agreed to pay 222 million euros ($261.32 million) to lure the 25-year-old Brazilian forward from Barcelona on a five-year contract.
The Brazilian pleased fans by parading round the pitch, showing his juggling skills and ending up bare-chested after throwing his team shirt into the crowd.
Neymar had said at a media presentation on Friday that he hoped to take part in PSG's opening league match against newly-promoted Amiens at the Parc des Princes.
Despite training with his new teammates, who include fellow Brazilian Dani Alves, another former Barcelona star, Neymar will not play.
PSG failed to meet a midnight deadline for a transfer certificate to be submitted to France's professional football league, the LFP, from Spain's football authorities, a LFP spokeswoman said.
