Lyon handed PSG a 1-0 loss at the Parc des Princes on Sunday to move into second place in Ligue 1 and send the home side down to third, but the result was much more devastating than that — Neymar was stretchered off in injury time after an awful tackle from Thiago Mendes that resulted in a straight red card.
Back in August, Neymar Jr. ended a 15-year relationship with Nike to sign a new deal with PUMA that reportedly earns him more than $30 million per year.
