Neymar Jr out for six to eight weeks, says Neymar Sr

Neymar Jr out for six to eight weeks, says Neymar Sr”

PSG suffered a 3-1 defeat at European champions Real Madrid in the first leg of their last 16 tie.

Emery's remarks were greeted with a swift response from Neymar's father, who told ESPN Brasil: "PSG know they won't have Neymar available for six to eight weeks".

Paris St Germain have suffered a major blow with the news Brazil forward Neymar has suffered a cracked metatarsal and a sprained ankle.

"The decision [to undergo surgery] lies with PSG and will be made as a team after the arrival of the Brazil national team doctor".

"Neymar is not going to be operated on, that's not true", Emery told reporters as quoted by Goal.

While Paris Saint Germain coach Unai Emery contemplates how to replace Neymar against Real Madrid, the Spaniards' coach Zinedine Zidane is enjoying the luxury of being able to rest his star, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The French side must overturn a 3-1 deficit from the first leg, but have the advantage of playing in front of their home fans.

Neymar Sr., who is also his son's agent, said Brazil national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar was making his way to the French capital to assess the forward before the club make a decision regarding surgery. Personally, I do not know, I think he was looking for things though.

It is understood that the player has already rejected the idea of using painkillers, if they would be required for him to play in next week's crucial Champions League clash against Real Madrid. The Brazilian football federation left the ball in PSG's court by saying "we always uphold the decisions made by the clubs", but media reports from the country suggested he'll need surgery and that could mean a couple of months out.

He said: "We play as always against Neymar, but he always tries to provoke".

"It would be very risky as it's a fragile bone in the foot which is hard to protect", Jean-Marcel Ferret, a former doctor with the French national team, told AFP.

The most talented and the poster boy of the Brazilian game is undoubtedly PSG striker Neymar. "We have a World Cup to win, so get better fast!"
