Doctor Jose Luis Runco praised the weight Neymar has gained and gave an update on his current fitness.
Globo quoted the Doctor, he said: “Neymar took great advantage when he gained weight after his throat operation.
“He gained after surgery and the gain comes from work. I see no difference in the aspect of his athleticism as he was in the Confederations Cup compared to now.”
Neymar’s increased weight has obviously impressed those at the Brazilian national team and Runco has paid tribute to the youngsters club, Barcelona.
He added: “We have a very good relationship with almost all the clubs that have players and they have been a great courtesy.
“Any problem that can compromise the athlete, they send us the picture and is a facility. Both the initial and the final image of his foot, he had a very good recovery. He is fully recovered.”
The words ‘Neymar is fully recovered’ will be music to the ears of Brazil supporters who are hoping the attack can again deliver on the big stage in this summers World Cup.
