Neymar to miss Man Utd Champions League ties

PSG's Neymar reacts after he missed a goal opportunity during the French Cup soccer match between Paris Saint Germain and Strasbourg at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. Neymar will need further tes

The Brazil captain will miss both legs of Paris Saint-Germain's matches with Manchester United in the Champions League last 16 on February 12 and March 6 because of his latest foot injury.

The Brazil national team visited Paris on Tuesday and, along with Paris Saint-Germain and a team of medical experts, reached the decision that an operation was not necessary. As a result Neymar Jr is expected to return to the field within 10 weeks. The first leg of their two-game, total goals quarterfinal series would be played on April 9 or 10.

Surgery most likely would end his second season with PSG and jeopardise his availability for Copa America this summer.

The forward picked up a foot injury in the French Cup match with Strasbourg on January 23 and had scans and further assessment at PSG's Ooredoo Training Center.

"Paris Saint-Germain sends its strongest support and encouragement to Neymar Jr to overcome this injury, with the courage and determination that the player has always shown", the club said.

Depending on his recovery, the 26-year-old could be back in contention for a prospective Champions League quarter-final with the first leg on April 9/10 and the second leg a week later.

Paris Saint-Germain have released an official statement over superstar forward Neymar after fears his recent injury would rule him out for the rest of the season.

Last year, Neymar was out for 11 weeks after suffering a metatarsal injury on the same right foot, missing PSG's Champions League last-16 exit to holders Real Madrid.

But the World Cup victor has rejected the chance to join the French club on loan.

Neymar became the world's most expensive player when he joined PSG from Barcelona for 222 million euros (US$254 million) in 2017.
