Neymar Jr suffered a fresh ankle injury against Lille, which is expected to keep him out of the crucial Champions League round of 16 second leg clash between PSG and Bayern Munich.
The Brazilian continues with his recovery process and the first images of his recovery have been seen on Monday.
In the first play of the second half came the injury and the bad news for Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar had to be substituted and the replays showed a significant roll of the ankle joint.
The Brazilian player, who had been having a good game up to that point and had scored his team’s second goal, left the field of play with clear signs of pain, on a stretcher and with his hands on his head.
Later tests would confirm he had suffered a sprained right ankle.
The striker will have a recovery period of between three and four weeks, so his presence in the second leg against Bayern Munich seems impossible.
However, L’Equipe assured a week ago that Neymar wants to be in a position to take part in that match and that the star is confident that he will be ready to play.
“Neymar, who suffered a sprained ankle during the match against Lille, underwent an MRI scan today. This does not reveal a fracture. A new assessment of the ligament will be carried out in 48 hours,” a PSG statement declared.
