PSG confirm Neymar will undergo surgery in Brazil

Paris: Neymar will undergo surgery on his foot and ankle injury in Brazil at the end of this week, Paris Saint-Germain said on Wednesday.

Rodrigo Lasmar, the surgeon with the Brazilian national squad, will carry out the operation on the 26-year-old whose father claimed on Tuesday he will be out of action for at least six weeks.

Neymar, who suffered a hairline fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot as well as a twisted ankle late in PSG's 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1 on Sunday, will miss the Champions League last-16 clash at home to Real Madrid on Tuesday where PSG look to overturn a 3-1 first leg deficit.
