Neymar could be out for the remainder of the season with the Brazilian footballer set to have surgery after rupturing his ACL and suffering a meniscus tear in his left knee, Al-Hilal have confirmed.
The former PSG and Barcelona forward suffered the agonising injury while playing in his nation’s 2-0 defeat to Uruguay in World Cup qualifying on Wednesday evening.
He now faces a race against time to recover ahead of the Copa America in the United States next summer.
Footballer Neymar suffers a torn ACL on Brazil duty just two months after signing a �130m-a-year contract at Saudi side Al-Hilal
l-Hilal posted on X, formerly called Twitter: ‘The medical tests Neymar underwent confirmed the Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus tear injury in his knee. He will be going through surgery and then a treatment program that will be determined later.’
Neymar only signed his £130million-per-season contract with the Saudi Arabian club a couple of months ago.
