Neymar might not be bale to play the next month’s Champions League clash against Manchester United after Paris St Germain confirmed he has injured a metatarsal in his right foot during their 2-0 French Cup win over Strasbourg on Wednesday.
Neymar twisted his foot during the match, which made him left the pitch, i think this
should be the second time he is having metatarsal in the same foot, it happened last february, which required surgery that effectively ended his club campaign, it was added
that the present treatment would depend on how the injury heals in the next few days.
“Neymar is worried, because it’s the same foot, the right foot, in the same area,” PSG manager Thomas Tuchel said.
Tuchel criticised the referee for not protecting the Brazilian when Strasbourg’s players repeatedly fouled him.
“The referee didn’t whistle on one occasion, then two, then three and after that he ended up twisting his foot,” he added.
PSG face United at Old Trafford for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash on February 12th.
PSG, who hold a 13-point lead in Ligue 1 with 53 points from 19 games, return to league action on Sunday when they host Rennes.
