Neymar Leaves Hospital To Spend 1st Phase Of Recovery Post Surgery

Neymar's 2018 FIFA World Cup Dream Hinges on Brazil Coach Tite- Potential Replacements for the Injured PSG Star

Neymar will also have to sit out Brazil's friendlies against Russian Federation and Germany.

The Brazilian forward joined PSG from Barcelona last August, scoring 29 goals in just 30 games.

"The operation, conducted by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, was successful".

He will be assessed by PSG bosses in six weeks to determine when he will be able to return to training.

"The post-op rehabilitation will begin immediately with the presence of a Paris St. Germain physiotherapist", the Brazilian Football Confederation added. "In six weeks, we will make a new evaluation", said Brazil national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, who performed the operation.

There have been suggestions that the 26-year-old could be out for three months and he will be eager to be fully fit to represent Brazil at this summer's World Cup, which gets underway on June 14.

The Ligue 1 side next play Real Madrid on March 6, where they need to overcome a 1-3 deficit in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 encounter.

The physician added, however, that he should be in "full form" by the time of the World Cup.

"Contrary to what might have been written or said., decisions already taken and those to come have had the complete agreement of Neymar of course, and of his family, all the staff at PSG, the medical staff, the organization and management of PSG, and the representatives of the CBF", Saillant said.

"The operation will be in Belo Horizonte on Saturday morning, and the recovery takes from two-and-a-half months to three months", he was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.
