The Brazilian striker Neymar, injured on the right foot, will be able to play again "within ten weeks", at the beginning of April, as announced on Wednesday Paris Saint-Germain. "A consensus was reached to propose to Neymar a conservative treatment of his right fifth metatarsal lesion," explained PSG, which rejects the possibility of operating again.
The date set for his return corresponds to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, great goal of the French club. Neymar will miss the knockout stages of the competition, which begin on February 12 against Manchester United. Shows concern about the state of the Brazilian star, coach Tite, who is preparing the next Copa América (from June 14 to July 7 in Brazil), crossed the Atlantic this week to visit the player at his home in Paris.
The same as Rodrigo Lasmar, the Seleçao doctor who already operated on Neymar last March for the fracture of the fifth metatarsal of his right foot, the same injury he now suffers, present in Paris since Monday to examine the crack. Neymar had to leave the Cup match against Strasbourg on Wednesday because of a pain in the right foot after a tough entry from a rival. Hours later, the PSG was content to report that the player suffered "a painful reactivation of the fifth right metatarsal".
