The former Barcelona superstar was in the capital for his country's goalless draw with England at Wembley, before dining with singer Demi Lovato and television presenter Layla Anna-Lee.

The group also visited the exclusive Ambassador Casino in Mayfair, with Neymar and his international team-mates making a real night of it by staying out until 6am.

Neymar's antics were met with criticism but Emery is adamant that the 'responsible' 25-year-old is doing nothing wrong.

Emery, speaking in Paris ahead of Wednesday's visit of Celtic in the Champions League, said: 'Out of work, football, he can enjoy his friends.

'In training he is very good. He is young, so he also needs to go out and be with them, but he remains responsible.' 

Another talking point in Emery's press conference was Julian Draxler, who is beginning to fulfil his potential in France.

And the PSG boss has been delighted with the Germany international who has occupied a more central role recently — though he is not getting carried away.

He added: 'He progresses — but he must maintain consistency in his game, maintain this level and not relax.

'He is playing as a midfielder. He has good ability and finds a good balance between defence and attack.

'If he continues like this then he can still grow. We are very happy with him, but every day we remind him to keep this standard.'
