A screen attached to the tower displayed the message: ‘Welcome Neymar Jr’ to celebrate the arrival of the Brazilian forward.

Neymar was denied the chance to make his PSG debut on Saturday after La Liga officials failed to send over the necessary paperwork to French league officials in time to register him.

The 25-year-old had to be content with a place in the stands as he watched his new team-mates beat newly-promoted Amiens 2-0 at the Parc des Princes with Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore on the scoresheet.

PSG coach Unai Emery suggested after the game that La Liga were to blame for Neymar’s missed debut, saying: ‘All I know is that the club did everything to have the player’s transfer ratified.
