Paris: Neymar will not play again for Paris Saint-Germain in 2021 as he has been sidelined for up to eight weeks with an ankle injury.

The Brazilian forward was forced from the field on a stretcher after landing awkwardly during the Ligue 1 clash with Saint-Etienne.

PSG said in a statement on the club’s official website on Monday: “The examinations carried out confirm that Neymar Jr suffers from a sprained left ankle with ligament injuries.”

“An unavailability of 6 to 8 weeks is to be expected. A new assessment will be made in 72 hours to specify the recovery.”

If the 29-year-old is to miss the next six weeks, then he will be forced to sit out domestic meetings with Nice, Lens, Monaco, and Lorient before the Ligue 1 winter break, along with the final Champions League group stage clash with Club Brugge.
