Neymar surgery successful – Brazilian federation


Neymar Jr, Brazil and Paris St Germain forward  has had a successful operation on his injured foot and ankle, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said in a statement on Saturday.

The world’s most expensive footballer was operated on in Belo Horizonte by the Brazil national team doctor to repair the fractured metatarsal and sprained ankle he suffered in last weekend’s French Ligue 1 match against Olympique de Marseille.

He will be re-evaluated in around six weeks in order to specify a possible date when he can return to training,” CBF said.

Neymar is expected to recover in time for the FIFA World cup in Russia
