Neymar was out of action most part of last campaign with the French champions after battling a foot injury that needed surgery in the early part of 2019.

In recent time, Neymar has suffered series of injuries since his record-breaking switch from Barcelona to PSG, with the Ligue 1 champions looking forward to get a better understanding of Neymar’s injury situation.

Neymar Jr. suffered a severe sprain of the outer lateral ligament of his right ankle in Brasilia during a warm-up match for the Copa America.

"Paris Saint-Germain's Brazil striker will be reassessed by the club's medical department within the next 72 hours to define the rehabilitation process and recovery time for the player,” a release on PSG official website, read in part on Thursday, June 7.

Interestingly, Neymar’s latest injury is another blow for the football star, days after he was stripped of Brazil's armband earlier in the month as well as possible legal issues off the field.
