PSG confirm that Neymar Jr. will lose the rest of the season as the Brazilian has to undergo surgery on his ankle
Paris Saint-Germain announced on Monday that Neymar will undergo ankle surgery and will be sidelined for the rest of the season. The Brazilian winger went out with an injury in PSG’s 4-3 victory over Lille in February.
Neymar out for up to four months
Cristophe Galtier confirmed last week that Neymar won’t be present in the clash against Nantes. PSG went on to win 4-2. PSG fans were hoping that he could be back against Bayern Munich. The club has confirmed that Neymar will be out for the rest of the season. He will potentially be sidelined for three to four months.
A statement read: “Neymar Jr has featured several episodes of right ankle instability in recent years.
“Following his last sprain contracted on February 20, the Paris Saint-Germain medical staff recommended a ligament repair operation in order to avoid a major risk of recurrence. All the experts consulted confirmed this need.
“This surgery will be performed in the coming days at ASPETAR Hospital in Doha.
“A delay of three to four months is expected before his return to collective training.”
