  • Facing another spell on the sidelines

WHAT HAPPENED? The 31-year-old had been among the goals for PSG in their latest Ligue 1 encounter, with an eventful clash against Lille playing out at Parc des Princes. Neymar was, however, unable to see the game out after being forced off inside six minutes of the second-half getting underway.

WHY WAS NEYMAR TAKEN OFF? Neymar was looking to get PSG moving forward when he suffered the injury which ultimately saw him leave the field with his head in his hands. As he attempted to wriggle his way through midfield, the South American went over on his right ankle and was clearly in discomfort from the moment that he hit the turf. He did receive medical attention, but the decision was quickly taken that he was in no position to continue.
