A WOMAN has accused footie ace Neymar of raping her in France according to a Sao Paulo police report.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward, 27, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to Brazil’s Globo website, which first reported on the allegations, a representative for Neymar declined to comment, awaiting further details.

Neymar’s dad, Neymar Sr, said in a local TV interview: “If public opinion is not cleared up, and if we can’t show the truth rapidly, this will snowball.

“If we have to show Neymar’s WhatsApps and conversations with this girl, we will, because it is clear that it was a trap.”

According to the police report, the unnamed woman told investigators in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo that she met Neymar on Instagram and he suggested they meet in the French capital.

according to the police report, the woman said that Neymar arrived at the hotel that “apparently drunk,” and that they talked and “caressed”.

It added: “However, at some point, Neymar became aggressive, and through violence, practised sexual intercourse against the will of the victim.”

The woman told police she returned home to Brazil two days later without telling French police about the alleged rape because she was “emotionally shaken and afraid to register the facts in another country”.
