"--IANS/EFE"
Brasilia, July 4 (IANS/EFE) Brazil football star Neymar's father is reportedly involved in a FIFA World Cup ticket blackmarketing network.

Newspaper reports said that Neymar Sr. is involved with a network led by Algerian businessman Mamadou Lamine Fofana, which pumped 300,000 euros to buy tickets and sell these at a higher price in the black market, reports EFE.

Police investigations involved names like Carlos Alberto, who won the 1970 World Cup with Brazil, and Roberto de Assis, Ronaldinho's brother.

Neymar Sr.'s company said that he does not have anything to do with the network.
