Brazilian star Neymar shrugged off a minor road accident that damaged his Ferrari Spider to start Barcelona’s clash with Real Sociedad in La Liga on Sunday.
The 24-year-old striker hit trouble driving to the Barcelona training ground in rain before the team flew to the northern city of San Sebastian for the match.
“He had a car accident but was not injured and was able to continue his trip,” a source close to the club told AFP.
Neymar took his place in an unchanged Barcelona team alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
Earlier this week Spanish prosecutors asked for a two-year jail term and a 10 million euro ($10.6 million) fine on charges of corruption during his transfer from Brazilian club Santos to Barcelona.
However, Neymar will have to be on his best behaviour against Real Sociedad as a yellow card would see him miss next weekend’s Clasico against Real Madrid through suspension.
