Neymar suffers fractured metatarsal, serious doubt to face Real

first_img0Shares0000World-record signing Neymar had to be stretchered off against Marseille © AFP/File / GEOFFROY VAN DER HASSELTPARIS, France, Feb 27 – Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar suffered a sprained ankle and a fractured metatarsal when he was stretchered off in Sunday’s win over Marseille, the Ligue 1 leaders announced on Monday.The Brazilian, who signed for PSG in a world-record move from Barcelona last year, is now a serious injury doubt for the Champions League last-16 second leg against Real Madrid at the Parc des Princes on March 6. PSG trail in the tie after a 3-1 first-leg defeat in Spain, with their hopes of a maiden Champions League title taking a further body blow with the confirmation of Neymar’s injury, although they didn’t specify how long the 26-year-old would be out of action.“Additional examinations performed today (ultrasound and CT) confirmed an external sprain of the right ankle, but also an associated fissure of the fifth metatarsal,” PSG said in a short statement.The chances of Neymar returning to fitness in time to face the reigning European champions now appear extremely slim.He is all but certain to miss Wednesday’s French Cup quarter-final against Marseille and the weekend’s Ligue 1 visit to Troyes, with the Real clash just three days later.Metatarsal injuries usually take weeks, if not months to recover from.Just last year, Neymar’s international team-mate Gabriel Jesus was out of action for two months after breaking a metatarsal with Manchester City, and has struggled with further injuries since.Former England stars David Beckham and Wayne Rooney spent six weeks on the sidelines with metatarsal injuries in the past, with both still arguably being rushed back too soon for the 2002 and 2006 World Cups respectively.Brazil fans will also be keeping a close eye on Neymar’s fitness, especially after he missed their 2014 World Cup thrashing by Germany with injury.PSG, who lead the French top flight by a massive 14 points, also said that Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos had picked up a leg muscle problem.– Stretchered off in anguish –Neymar was stretchered off in anguish towards the end of PSG’s 3-0 victory over their great rivals in the capital, having innocuously rolled his right ankle and flopped to the ground in pain.With the game already as good as over, the stadium held its breath as he was treated and then carried away, with PSG forced to finish the match with 10 men having made all of their substitutions.Neymar himself posted a picture on Instagram of his right leg with the ankle and foot heavily bandaged, before later appearing to delete the post. “08:10. Finished for today,” said the caption.French newspaper Le Parisien had earlier reported that tests on Monday morning had ruled out a “fracture of a serious sprain”.But the club later confirmed their fans’ worst fears, with the return game against Real just eight days away.Despite the injury potentially benefiting Madrid, the Spanish side’s coach Zinedine Zidane claimed he hoped Neymar would recover in time to play.“I’m not happy with the Neymar injury and I hope he can be back for the game. I will never want a rival player to be out injured,” Zidane said at a press conference in the Spanish capital earlier on Monday.While Neymar was leaving the Parc des Princes on crutches on Sunday, PSG coach Unai Emery insisted he was “optimistic”.“We will be optimistic. If I had to say today (whether or not he will face Real) I would rather say yes,” said the Spaniard.But now his team’s hopes of keeping their European dream alive are hanging by a thread, despite the continued presence up front of Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.PSG have never reached the Champions League final, and lost at the last-16 stage last season after a humiliating 6-1 second-leg thrashing by a Neymar-inspired Barcelona, having won the first game 4-0.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Rivaldo thinks Neymar will never win anything important with PSG

first_imgBrazil legend Rivaldo has recently claimed that Neymar will never ever win anything important while playing for Paris Saint-Germain, no matter how hard he tries.Neymar joined PSG in a record-breaking deal last summer for the massive fee of 200 million euro. Since then, they managed to win a domestic double, which was highly expected, but did not get any European silverware, which is the sole purpose of the CEO of the French side – instead, they were knocked out by Real Madrid in the last-16 stage of the Champions League.“If Neymar doesn’t leave PSG he will never win anything important,” Rivaldo claimed, addressing the ambitions of both the club and the Brazilian, according to 101 Great Goals.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“Especially the Champions League, which is the most important competition.”“The French league is at a lower level compared to the Spanish and English leagues and he plays for a club without history,” Rivaldo even took a jab at Paris Saint-Germain.last_img read more

This season, because things were so good, we were thinking: ‘We don’t need to suffer.’”“Two teams, Tottenham and Wolves, proved us wrong. That’s why, against Manchester City, everyone saw a team that was ready to fight. We wanted to take the supporters with us and we did that.”“We were playing beautiful football at the start of the season, but that doesn’t mean you forget the ugly side of it — winning tackles, tracking back, doing everything defensively.”“Against Manchester City we were very clinical, which was also important.

Wenger backs Henry to have a successful managerial career

first_imgThierry Henry has the required “qualities” to become an outstanding manager, says his former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.The Arsenal and France legend’s spell in charge of boyhood club AS Monaco came to an early end in January after just three months in charge.At the time of Henry’s appointment, Monaco were down in 18th-place in Ligue 1 with just one win in nine games and turned to their former player in a desperate bid to turn things around.But Henry fared no better than his predecessor Leonardo Jardim with 11 defeats and five wins in his 20 games in charge of Les Monégasques before being fired in January. Monaco then controversially reappointed Jardim.Meanwhile, Henry’s former team-mate Patrick Vieira has got off to a much smoother start in his managerial career with OGC Nice currently up in eighth-place in Ligue 1.But Wenger is certain that Henry will be a success in football management just like Vieira is set to be.“Both have the qualities to be outstanding managers,” said Wenger, according to Sky Sports.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Because in January everybody starts to become nervous that things could go very badly.“You have less time when you arrive in the middle of the season. That is what happened to Thierry.“How he bounces back will be very important. I think he has the quality and desire to make a career, and a career is judged on the longer period.”“I started my job [with Nancy] at 33 years of age, I had very promising people around me, and many of them disappeared while some survived. Why? You need luck and to work hard.“It’s always very difficult to predict a career of a manager. It depends on the quality of the players and the confidence we get. But both have the qualities and I wish they make it a great career.“It’s very good for me to see that players I had continue to share our game with people and develop young players.”Thierry HenryMONACO – NOVEMBER 06: Thierry Henry, Manager of Monaco applauds fans following his team’s defeat in the the Group A match of the UEFA Champions League between AS Monaco and Club Brugge at Stade Louis II on November 6, 2018 in Monaco, Monaco.
