(Video) Neymar suffers NASTY ankle injury during PSG game

Posted by

Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar suffered a nasty-looking ankle injury during his side’s victory over AS Saint-Étienne this afternoon.

The Brazilian has become increasingly injury-prone in recent seasons, but the damage done to him today was purely rotten luck.

Under challenge from a Saint-Étienne player, Neymar attempted to plant his left foot on the turf but instead landed on the leg of the opposing player.

As a result, Neymar rolled his ankle and it was clear immediately that he was in some degree of pain and had been quite badly injured.

It’s not for the faint-hearted, but here’s the clip if you want to see the incident…

We can only hope that the damage done to Neymar is not as serious as first thought, but it seems likely that he’s going to be spending some time on the sidelines.

PSG are already 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, but Mauricio Pochettino will need Neymar fit and firing for the latter stages of the Champions League.
