The star player of Paris Saint Germain has suffered a new injury on the right metatarsal. This marred the advance of the holders to the last sixteen of French Cup over Strasbourg with a victory of 2-0.
He had a fractured metatarsal which had curtailed his previous season. Now, there is a recurrence just 3 weeks before the first leg of the crunch Champions League match of PSG against Manchester United.
The seriousness of his injury is not yet confirmed. However, Neymar had been unable to walk on the field without support. Initial test shows that there is a painful reactivation of his previous injury on the 5th metatarsal. The treatment is going to depend on how it progresses in the following days. Adding every medical option is going to be taken into consideration.
Neymar had tried continuing with his play but he was crying with pain. Thus, he was forcefully replaced by Moussa Diaby with one hour to go. His departure has been a worrying moment for PSG. This is because the most expensive player of the world has missed the 3 final months in the last season after he broke the same bone.
Every season PSG who dominates the domestic league of France is judged as per the results of the Champions League. Thomas Tuchel said after the game that the doctor is worried and Neymar is also worried. This is because it is in the same place.
