Hiiraan Xog, Feb 27, 2018:- BREAKING: PSG coach Emery has denied growing reports that Neymar is to undergo operatio.
Paris Saint-Germain Coach Unai Emery has blasted ‘false reports’ that Neymar needs to undergo surgery for an ankle injury.
Reports in Marca on Tuesday stated the Brazilian would be out of action for two months – and miss the Real Madrid tie – due to the injury, yet Emery has called those out as incorrect.
“The reports Neymar will undergo surgery are totally false,” Emery told a press conference, as cited by El Mundo Deportivo.
“Today I met with the doctor and he told me of the full extent of the injury and the decisions to be taken regarding his recovery.
“We will see how he progresses before making a decision, and that will be made with the player himself.
“For now, we are calm and are waiting to see how Neymar recovers – if he does, that’s fantastic and if not, we have alternatives.”
The 25-year-old sustained a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle after being injured in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Marseille in Ligue 1.
