PSG confirm Brazil star Neymar expected to be out of action for 10 weeks with a right foot injury.

Paris Saint-Germain have said Neymar is expected to be sidelined for about 10 weeks with a right foot injury.

That would rule the Brazil striker out of both legs of PSG's matchup against Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League, and potentially both legs of the quarter-finals in mid-April if PSG go through.

In a statement on Wednesday, 30 January, PSG said a group of medical experts met a day earlier to assess the damage to his fifth metatarsal and decided the best course of action was a “conservative treatment” and not an operation.

PSG added Neymar was in “total agreement” with the decision.

Neymar was injured while playing against Strasbourg in a French Cup tie on 23 January, which PSG won 2-0.
