PSG IN DIFFICULTY : Neymar out with ankle injury, before Champions League game

Ney­mar injured his ankle in the mid­dle of the Paris Saint-Ger­main-Lille match and was forced to come off.

Ney­mar scored PSG’s sec­ond goal in a 4–3 win over Lille, but in the 51st minute he injured his ankle after con­tact with Lille’s Ben­jamin André at the Parc des Princes and had to under­go lengthy treat­ment. Ney­mar injured the same ankle at the Qatar World Cup.

PSG are in trou­ble to advance to the next round after los­ing 1–0 at home to Bay­ern Munich in the last 16 of the Cham­pi­ons League on Tues­day. The return leg in Munich is sched­uled for March 8th.

PSG chair­man Nass­er Al-Khe­laifi and Chelsea co-own­er Todd Bai­ley met in Paris ear­li­er this week to dis­cuss a poten­tial move for Neymar.

The strik­er has come under fire for his lack of com­mit­ment after French media report­ed that he took part in a pok­er tour­na­ment and dined at a fast food restau­rant after last week’s Cham­pi­ons League exit.

PSG man­ag­er Christophe Galti­er lat­er defend­ed Ney­mar, claim­ing he had spo­ken to him about the news.
