Neymar honoured with symbolic medal

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has been honoured with a symbolic medal after making his 100th appearance for the club last week.

Neymar reached the milestone of 100 matches for the Parisians when he started in Friday's 4-0 Ligue 1 win over Montpellier and marked the occasion in typical fashion by netting his 81st goal for the club.

The Brazil international's achievement has now been recognized by the club after the reigning French champions honoured him with a symbolic medal and commemorative jersey to celebrate the occasion. 

"Author of his 100th official match with the capital club on the occasion of the 4-0 victory against Montpellier on Friday at the Parc des Princes, the Paris Saint-Germain striker received a medal representing this symbolic milestone on Tuesday, 26 January at the Ooredoo Training Center," the club said in an official statement.

"As tradition dictates, the Brazilian international, who has already received a jersey with his name and the number 100 after the success against the Héraultais, received a medal before the training session of the day." 

Neymar is the eighth current player to achieve the milestone for the club, after teammates Marco Verratti, Marquinhos, Angel Di Maria, Presnel Kimpembe, Julian Draxler, Kylian Mbappe and Layvin Kurzawa.
