Neymar has made more appearances on the latest season of ‘Money Heist’ than he has in the current Ligue One season for his club PSG.
Playing ‘Joao’, he is in episodes six and eight of the new season and is seen dressed in a boiler suit with a Dali mask, as well as a Monk outfit.
Eu pude realizar meu sonho e fazer parte da minha série favorita. E agora eu posso compartilhar o João com todos vocês !

Neymar wrote on Twitter: “I was able to realize my dream and be part of my favourite series. And now I can share Joao with you all! Thank you Casa de Papel.”
The former Barcelona forward’s scenes were cut from the final edit in July following rape allegations against him but with the case subsequently dropped, his cameos have been added back into the show.
The 27-year old, known for his theatrics on the pitch, has dabbled in acting before – having made a brief appearance in XXX: Return of Xander Cage alongside lead actor Vin Diesel back in 2017.
