Real Madrid's Marcelo back in training ahead of PSG Champions League clash
Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar underwent successful surgery on his broken foot on Saturday, officials said, leaving the planet's most expensive footballer in a race to recover before the World Cup. It went well, ' a spokesman for the CBF said.
PSG do not know how long Neymar will be out for yet, but Lasmar previously said he expected the forward to be out between two-and-a-half and three months and return just before the start of the 2018 World Cup.
The 26-year-old will be battling to return in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.
Initially Neymar's father predicted the injury would keep his son out for between six to eight weeks, giving him plenty of time to recover for the tournament in Russian Federation.
Lasmar, who will lead the surgery at a hospital in Belo Horizonte, said there is no quick fix for the striker.
However, they are in danger of crashing out of the Champions League unless they overcome the 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie.
"A report will be made in six weeks to clarify when he will return to training".
The initial assessment did not appear as serious on Sunday, when Neymar was reported to have suffered a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal, as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG´s 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1.
"The post-operation rehabilitation will begin immediately under the control of the club's physiotherapist", PSG said in a statement on their website.
PSG and Brazil have competing interests in Neymar's case.
Prior to the operation, Dr. Lasmar said: "Neymar suffered a fracture to the fifth metatarsal, it is an important fracture in a foot bone". He has enjoyed a superb first season at PSG, but the injury comes at a poor time and will disrupt his preparations for the World Cup.
After their opening match against Switzerland, the five-time World Cup winners will then face Costa Rica and Serbia.
"When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally", Nunes told AFP.
