Neymar to begin rehab after operation

Neymar to begin rehab after operation

PSG coach Unai Emery says the club are working hand in hand with Brazil to ensure Neymar has every opportunity to recover as quickly as possible from the operation and prepare properly for the tournament in Russian Federation.

However, the French club's medical staff and the Brazil national team agreed after further assessments that a surgery was the best option to alleviate the injury.

The operation was declared a complete success.

"The post-op rehabilitation will begin immediately with the presence of a Paris St. Germain physiotherapist", the Brazilian Football Confederation added.

The Brazilian chose to undergo an operation after breaking his fifth metatarsal against Marseille last weekend, rather than recover in the usual way and play on pain-killing injections.

The Saturday operation repaired a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

Apple reportedly expanding audio lineup with high-end, over-ear headhpones
Apple's success with AirPods has given the Cupertino tech giant confidence to begin expanding its headphone product line. Although the company plans to release the headphones as early as 4Q18, the site notes that there have been setbacks.

PSG will assess Neymar in six weeks to establish a possible date for his return to training, with reports suggesting the 26-year-old could be out of action for around three months.

"Neymar is sad, but understands he has no alternative now".

Neymar became the most expensive player in the world when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer for a fee of £198million.

Gerard Saillant, the French doctor representing PSG at the hospital, said the timing of Neymar's return to full training could only be given at the six-week mark. "He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible", said Lasmar.

Neymar will miss PSG's Champions League second leg against Real Madrid and Brazil's two warm-up friendlies later this month as he continues his recovery.
