Arriving injured this summer at Al-Hilal from PSG for a fee of 90 million euros, Neymar only played a handful of matches with the Saudi club this season before getting injured again, but this time - this much more seriously.
On October 17, the top scorer and passer in the history of the Brazilian selection suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament and the meniscus of his left knee. The former Parisian has since undergone successful surgery, but this terrible disappointment will keep him away from the pitch until the end of the season.
His club Al-Hilal has had great difficulty digesting this situation. According to information from the Saudi media Arriyadiyah, the current leader of the Saudi Pro League would not be paid Neymar, who was unavailable for almost a year. As a reminder, the No.10 receives a pharaonic salary of more than 100 million euros per season in Saudi Arabia.
The Riyadh training management would have taken the decision to temporarily suspend the registration of “Ney” in the first team. This change will be effective this winter. The Saudi media also claims that a left back will be recruited in January and will replace Neymar in the Al-Hilal squad list.
