Neymar reveals when he will return from injury
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, has said he still needs a month to recover from a foot operation.
Neymar has been out of action since he broke a metatarsal bone in his foot on February 25.
“I need about a month, but it is healing well. Everything is happening normally,” he told TV Globo.
If his recovery continues as scheduled, Neymar should be fit in time to take his place in Brazil’s squad for the 2018 World Cup finals.
Brazil’s first group match is against Switzerland on June 17.
PSG coach, Emery Unai, said earlier Friday that Neymar was “close” to returning to the club.
“When he gets here, he will want to play. Perhaps he’ll have time to play a few matches before the end of the season,” Emery stated.
PSG play their last Ligue 1 match on May 19.
