Neymar discharged from hospital after surgery on golden foot

 

BRAZIL – Football superstar Neymar has been discharged from hospital on Sunday after undergoing surgery for a broken right foot.

The operation at Mater Dei hospital in Belo Horizonte citywas successful, a spokesperson said. However, it has put the planet’s most expensive footballer out of action until the eve of the World Cup.

The surgery to mend a broken fifth metatarsal bone was done on Saturday.

The surgery will cost Neymar up to three months to recover, leaving Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) without the striker, whose transfer from Barcelona cost the club a record 222 million-euro ($264 million) last August.

PSG face Real Madrid in a make-or-break Champions League clash next Tuesday.

Neymar has scored 28 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions for PSG since arriving, a prolific performance cut short by the injury on February 25 during PSG’s 3-0 drubbing of Marseille.

Neymar is expected to be back only a few weeks before the June start of the World Cup in Russia. GAD/Expat Media
