But according to Marca, Artur regrets his decision to attend the party and has vowed to improve as a person.

He reportedly said: "I think I was wrong, life has these things, sometimes you're wrong and sometimes you're right.

"I was excited to go, but I'm big enough to take responsibility, I knew what I was doing, but I apologise.

"My colleagues have helped me a lot and I am grateful to them, I am also grateful to the members of the sports management.

"I am happy for having recovered, I give the best of myself, I know I have to improve, as a person."

Reports claimed that Barcelona's technical staff gave Arthur a dressing down after he was snapped at the event.

Ernesto Valverde decided not to drop the midfielder, but wanted him to be aware that his behaviour was not acceptable.

The six-cap Brazil international was sidelined with a hamstring injury and was ruled out for up to four weeks at the start of February.

He has cemented his spot in Barcelona's midfielder this season, bagging two assists in 30 appearances in all competitions.

Arthur was one of 200 guests at Neymar's red-themed birthday bash – including Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and David Luiz.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward hobbled into the event on crutches as he continued his recovery from a foot injury.
