Neymar reveals extent of ankle injury


PSG star Neymar didn't have the best of Sunday evenings as he succumbed to injury in the derby against Marseille, with the player taking to social media on Monday morning to share a photo of his injured ankle with his followers.

The Brazilian caused panic in the French capital when he was stretchered off in tears in the Ligue 1 match with Marseille following a challenge from Ismaily Sarr.

However, according to the French press, early test have ruled out a fracture for the Brazilian.

It looks to have been a long night for the former Barcelona man, who posted a photo of his immobilised and strapped up ankle along with the caption "Finished for today" early on Monday morning.

Following the game, which finished 3-0 in PSG's favour, Unai Emery discussed the injury sustained by his star man and whilst he admitted that Neymar would certainly miss this week's Cup 'classique' against Marseille, he did suggest that the player would be fit for the visit of Real Madrid in the Champions League.

It remains to be seen whether Emery's prediction will come true but one thing is for certain, the PSG medical staff will be working night and day to get the Samba star back on the pitch as soon as possible.
