PSG Confirm Neymar Foot Operation Was Successful
PSG have confirmed that Neymar underwent “successful” surgery on his fractured foot at a hospital in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.
Neymar is now facing up to three months on the sidelines as a result of the damage, which he sustained in the 3-0 league win over Marseille last weekend.
PSG revealed that they will wait until the middle of next month before determining when they can expect to have him back.
A club statement read: “Neymar Jr underwent surgery today at the Materdei Hospital in Belo Horizonte. The operation, conducted by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, was successful.
“The operation consisted of the laying of a screw associated with a transplant fixed at the level of the lesion of the fifth metatarsal of the right foot.
“Re-education will begin immediately under the direction of a club physiotherapist. Neymar’s injury will be assessed in six weeks’ time to establish a possible date for his return to training.”
