Neymar to be out for four weeks due to sustained injury


Neymar is expected to be out for four weeks after the Paris Saint-Germain star suffered a hamstring injury on international duty.

The Ligue 1 club confirmed in a club statement on Monday that the Brazilian has undergone an MRI scan, which confirmed a grade 2 lesion of the left ischiosis-tibial femoral biceps, a muscle in the thigh.

An assessment will be carried out in eight days’ time, but he is expected to miss around a month of action.

Neymar was forced off after just 12 minutes of Brazil’s 1-1 friendly draw with Nigeria in Singapore, and replaced by Bayern Munich’s Phillipe Coutinho.
