Neymar leaving foot injury up to God

Neymar leaving foot injury up to God

Paris Saint-Germain poster boy Neymar could be forced to miss the upcoming Champions League match against Manchester United after suffering a metatarsal injury during a recent win over Strasbourg.

And the club has confirmed that early assessments by doctors showed a re-aggravation on Neymar's right metatarsal - the same foot he fractured past year. "He twisted his foot", said Tuchel.

The return leg is March 6.

PSG said in a statement this morning: "The first examinations carried out revealed a painful reactivation of the lesion of the fifth right metatarsal".

The PSG coach was also unhappy with suggestions from the Strasbourg players and coach that Neymar had provoked the injury by winding up his opponents.

Strasbourg midfielder Anthony Goncalves, who left a mark on Neymar with a brash challenge of his own, expressed no sympathy and even suggested it was a response to Neymar's showboating towards his team.

This came few weeks after the Brazil attacker said that every top player "has to play" in the Premier League. We have high-quality players, we can aim high.

The smartphone that scores high with the selfie camera need not necessarily fare equally impressively with the main camera output. The two leaders are followed by the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 (84), Apple's iPhone XS Max (82) and the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (81).

"I've seen plenty of PSG players other than Neymar who are very good at 5-0 up, but when it's 0-0 they don't show off like that".

'He can amuse himself, that's his style and I think people come to watch that.

Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey described Neymar as a "phenomenon" in his post-match comments, but also said there was "nothing malicious" in his players' actions.

PSG travel to play Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 match on February 12 and is already sweating on the fitness of key midfielder Marco Verratti after he sprained his ankle last weekend.

PSG won the game with an early goal from Edinson Cavani and a late one from Angel Di Maria.

The timing could not have been more inconvenient for the French side, who are dominating the league, but will be fixated on their upcoming fixture with Man United on February 12.
