“It’s a very sad moment, the worst,” sighed Neymar, after his latest injury. The former PSG player suffers from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee. He was injured in mid-October during the Seleçao's defeat in Uruguay (2-0). “I know that I am strong but this time, I am going to need my friends and my family even more,” added the new Al-Hilal player, out for many months. Doctor of the Brazilian national team, Rodrigo Lasmar takes stock of the state of health of the 31-year-old striker, who is “recovering very well. I was with him on Sunday for another already scheduled post-operative evaluation. He is recovering very well but, of course, it is still the initial phase,” he explains.
He continued: “It was a complex knee injury, a ligament rupture and a meniscus injury, which had to be sutured, and for this reason he had to spend some time without walking. He will therefore go through a long and slow process of rehabilitation. He is aware of it. We are all aware of this. But he reacted very well. We are very satisfied with what he has shown so far. Of which act. Passed by Santos and FC Barcelona, Neymar Jr played at Paris Saint-Germain for six seasons, between 2017 and last summer, before a €90 million transfer to the Saudi championship and the Al-Hilal club, where he is under contract until June 2025.
