Why Neymar may miss Champions League clash against Madrid

Adjust Comment Print

Neymar was carried off on a stretcher during the 3-0 win on Sunday after rolling his ankle following a challenge from Bouna Sarr.

Recovery time for a fractured metatarsal can be up to three months, meaning Neymar - who became the world's most expensive footballer in August, joining PSG from Barcelona for $270 million - could return to action less than four weeks before the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

But Emery has provided a welcome injury boost for the French giants, claiming Neymar could yet be fit to face Los Blancos.

"Neymar is under the care of Paris Saint-Germain", Edu said after a World Cup meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi.

While it's good enough for the mid range ZenFone 5 , it is a bit on the lower side compared to rivals in the premium segment. It is powered by a 4000mAh battery , rated to deliver up to 36 hours of talk time on 3G, and 41 days of standby time on 4G.

Were he to undergo an operation now and return to fitness in May, that would suit Brazil, who could then rely on a fully fit and fresh Neymar for the World Cup.

On Monday morning he posted an image that showed his ankle in heavy strapping and surrounded by a brace. "08:10. Finished for today", said the caption.

Real Madrid have won their last five games, scoring an incredible twenty goals as Cristiano Ronaldo and co begin to turn things around.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane hasn't received the news well, as he insists he wants the best players to be available for the clash. "I watched the game live and I hope Neymar's injury is nothing risky", he added.

When he rolled in the birdie putt - one of just nine there all day - the screaming onlookers let loose. The game is getting better and I am looking for a strong finish in the final round, said Sharmila.

"I would never wish a rival player not to play due to an injury - never".

The player is expected to miss quite a big part of what's left of the season, as he's only set to get back to training in late April.

But now his team's hopes of keeping their European dream alive are hanging by a thread, despite the continued presence up front of Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

Unai Emery indicated after the match he was optimistic Neymar would recover from what the coach described as a twisted ankle in time to face Madrid on March 6.
