Brazilian soccer star Neymar (31, Paris Saint-Germain) decided to undergo surgery on his right ankle. Therefore, he will be absent for at least 3 months and at most 4 months. In the end, I think it should be seen as out of this 2022-2023 season. Neymar’s team, Paris Saint-Germain, has officially announced that Neymar will undergo surgery at a hospital in Doha, Qatar after a recent ankle injury.
Paris Saint-Germain said on its homepage on the 7th (Korean time), “The club’s medical staff recommended ligament reconstruction surgery to reduce the risk of recurrence. Many experts confirmed the need for this surgery.”
Neymar’s current market value is 75 million euros (based on the Transfermarkt). He scored 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain this season. Paris Saint-Germain is leading the regular league, and in the European Champions League, Bayern Munich (Germany) is ahead of the second leg of the round of 16. In the first leg, they lost to Munich 0-1. It is difficult to guarantee advances to the quarterfinals. In this situation, Neymar effectively ended the season.

However, his right ankle was turned during a struggle at the beginning of the second half, and after collapsing, he was carried off the ground on a stretcher. 로켓 토토
