PSG Says Neymar Suffered Metatarsal Fracture

01 March 2018

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery insists that no decision has been made over whether Neymar will have a foot operation amid reports that the Brazil worldwide could miss three months.

Four years ago, Neymar missed the semifinal against Germany with injury and Brazil were thrashed 7-1.

A source told the French newspaper: 'It's less serious than we feared.

The Brazilian, who signed for PSG in a world-record move from Barcelona a year ago, is now a serious injury doubt for the match against Real Madrid.

When Zidane was asked if Bale had been left out in Leganes to protect him, the Frenchman's response hinted all is not well. Prior to the penalty goal, Benzema had only scored three goals, and Ronaldo's act does not surprise Navas.

PSG boss Unai Emery had hoped to be able to count on the Brazilian when his team attempt to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit against the Champions League holders.

The Ligue 1 leaders said in a statement on Monday that Neymar had suffered "a sprain of the right ankle and also a fracture of the fifth metatarsal" but did not say how long he would be sidelined.

It had been reported by numerous news outlets that Neymar had made a decision to have surgery in order to completely solve the problem and minimise the risk of the injury impacting his World Cup.

Neymar is second in the league scoring charts behind teammate Edinson Cavani, with 19 goals in 20 games.

However, the likes of Peter Crouch and Stephen Ireland will not be ready to appear due to an ankle and calf injury respectively. In addition to that, this should also be a high scoring game since both teams love to score goals and can't defend.

The news will come as a huge blow to PSG as they have it all to do in the second leg having lost at the Bernabeu 3-1.

AS were another Spanish outlet to make the claim, suggesting "it seems impossible" he will be fit in time for the clash against Cristiano Ronaldo and Co.

Neymar, who left Barcelona for a whopping US$280 million transfer fee, has scored 29 goals in 30 games.

"I don't like players getting injured so I am not glad to see Neymar's injury", Zidane said. "Neymar wants to play against Real Madrid and we are focusing on this".
