26yr old Neymar out for 8 weeks,may undergo surgery

PSG forward Neymar will be out for at least six weeks and will miss Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against Real Madrid, according to his father, BBC Sport reports.

The Brazilian, 26, suffered a fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle in Sunday’s Ligue 1 win over Marseille.

PSG coach Unai Emery said Neymar had a “small chance” of facing Real, denying reports he needed surgery.
But Neymar senior said PSG know they “will not be able to count” on his son.

He told ESPN Brasil, “His treatment will last six to eight weeks, whether there is an operation or not.”

The striker joined PSG for a world record £200m fee from Barcelona last August and has scored 29 goals in 30 games.

“Neymar wants to play every game – he’s focused on Real,” said Emery earlier on Tuesday.

“I think there’s a small chance that he’ll be ready for the match.”

PSG are 14 points clear of second-placed Monaco in the league and on March 6 will host Champions League holders Real Madrid, trailing 3-1 from the first leg.
