Paris Saint-Germain have offered a minor update on the state of Neymar‘s recovery from injury, suggesting that the club could be able to set a date for the player’s return to training after they have evaluated his progress over the next 10 days.
The Brazilian has been out of action for the club since 25 February after fracturing his fifth metatarsal, leading to the playmaker having surgery and opting to recover in his homeland.
“The medical assessment by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirms the excellent evolution of Neymar Jr’s injury, and authorises the specific re-education of the right ankle and progressive full weight-bearing on the foot,” read a statement on the club’s official website.
“The speed of recuperation over the next ten days will allow the club to set a date for the player’s return to training.”
Neymar will be hoping to return to full fitness before the club’s Ligue 1 season finishes in order to find some game time ahead of Brazil‘s World Cup campaign in Russia this summer.
