Neymar Faces 'At Least Six Weeks Out', Set to Miss Madrid Clash

Neymar Faces 'At Least Six Weeks Out', Set to Miss Madrid Clash

Brazil's team doctor Dr Rodrigo Lasmar then claimed that Neymar would be absent for around three months, and there have been suggestions that PSG's preferred treatment options were at odds with the national team's.

The injury Neymar suffered Sunday in PSG's win over Olympique Marseille appears at first glance to be the second consecutive cruel twist of World Cup fate he has endured in his career.

The Brazilian will undergo surgery on a fractured toe in his right foot and could be out for up to three months.

While Neymar faces a race against time to play in the World Cup finals, there's another star striker who fancies his chances of being on the pitch in Russian Federation. "He will probably come to us well physically and, we believe, psychologically as well".

Five-time World Cup winners Brazil play their first group match on June 17 against Switzerland before facing Costa Rica and Serbia.

His absence will be PSG's loss, as the injury rules him out of the March 6 UEFA Champions League round-of-16 game against Real Madrid, the quarterfinals and most likely the first leg of the semifinal, should his team advance that far.

Neymar has scored 28 goals and provided 16 assists for the Ligue 1 leaders this season.

PSG coach Unai Emery had said earlier that there remained a "small chance" of getting him back in time to face Real next Wednesday morning (Singapore time).

"Internally, we speak with much clarity", said Emery.

"It would be very risky as it's a fragile bone in the foot which is hard to protect", Jean-Marcel Ferret, a former doctor with the French national team, told AFP. "Since we learned about his injury, we have been seeking the best for both the player and the team in our decision making". "We feel sorry for Neymar, but PSG are a very strong team and the player who comes in for him will be a very good player, we can be sure of that", Zidane told a news conference ahead of Real's Liga game at home to Getafe on Saturday.

Brazilians care little about the impact on PSG.

Neymar, the world's most expensive football player, struck a relaxed pose, putting up a picture on Instagram of himself in a wheelchair with his actress girlfriend Bruna Marquezine sitting on his lap and kissing him.
