World most expensive player Neymar to be out for at least six weeks

Neymar will be out for at least six weeks after sustaining a hairline fracture in his right foot as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG’s 3-0 win over Marseille on Sunday.

The world most expensive player’s father claims he will be out for at least six weeks during an interview with ESPN in Brazil.

“PSG know that they will not be able to count on Neymar for the upcoming matches: his treatment will last six to eight weeks, whether there is an operation or not”, Neymar Senior said during the interview.
PSG lost 3-1 in the first leg to Madrid two weeks ago and are in danger of being knocked out of the competition in the last 16 for the second season running.

Going by his father’s statement, Neymar would not return before the semi-final stage of the Champions League in late April.

In the meantime, PSG are preparing to do without Neymar for Wednesday’s French Cup quarter-final at home to Marseille, the second meeting of the clubs in four days. Argentine star Angel di Maria should replace the Brazilian at the Parc des Princes, with PSG hoping to stay on course to win the French Cup for the fourth season running.

Neymar has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since his 222 million-euro ($264 million) move from Barcelona last August.
