Neymar leaves hospital after surgery

Neymar: Brazil Football Confederation gives update on player's surgery

Quoted on Brazilian newspaper O Globo's website, he said: "The recovery takes from two and a half months to three months".

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, right, and French doctor Gerard Saillant, representing PSG, speak after the surgery.

The Brazil forward sprained his right ankle and cracked his fifth metatarsal during last Sunday's Ligue 1 victory over Marseille.

The Paris Saint-Germain player will begin his post-operation recovery at his mansion in Mangaratiba, along the southern coast of Rio de Janeiro state, local media reported.

Football's showpiece event starts in Moscow on June 14 and Neymar has been told he can expect to be out for three months.

The operation was declared a complete success. "In six weeks we will make a new evaluation", Rodrigo Lasmar said after performing the operation.

Turkey, Free Syrian Army clear town center in NW Syria
Even though the UN Security Council last week approved a 30-day ceasefire across Syria, including Afrin, Turkey has continued its assaults on the region.

"When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally", said Cristiano Nunes, the physiotherapist for Brazilian club Internacional.

He will be assessed by PSG bosses in six weeks to determine when he will be able to return to training.

NEYMAR is seen for the first time since having surgery on his foot as he boards a private jet.

Neymar is ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against Real Madrid and now faces a battle to regains sharpness ahead of the World Cup.

But if Lasmar's prognosis of a almost three-month wait is true, then Brazil will be scrambling even to get him ready for the World Cup in Russian Federation starting in June.
