PSG star Neymar reveals which game he expects to return for

Share

Neymar has been out of action since he broke a metatarsal bone in his foot on February 25. "Everything is happening normally".

"I need about a month, but it is healing well". "I'm progressing really well".

"He could possibly play in the final matches of the season".

In quotes reported on the club's Twitter feed, Emery said: "Neymar is close to a return after the latest tests".

"The medical assessment by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirms the excellent evolution of Neymar Jr's injury, and authorises the specific re-education of the right ankle and progressive full weight-bearing on the foot", read a statement on the club's official website. "Messi saw that I was upset and he started to talk to me: 'you have to be yourself, play your football, and don't let yourself get intimidated'".

"We hope to have him in the team for some of our remaining matches".

Those are the words of Pini Zahavi, an intermediary in Neymar's world-record move from Barcelona to PSG last summer. They suffered a second leg defeat to Real Madrid which eliminated them from the Champions League, but have won six of the other seven games for which the Brazilian has been missing.

The last round of games in the Ligue 1 season are scheduled for May 19, but Neymar faces a race against time to play any part.

Monaco beat PSG to the French crown for the first time in five years last season, but the capital club have dominated this campaign and can clinch the title with victory over last season's champions tomorrow.
