Tearful Neymar Wants ‘New Metatarsal’ For Birthday
Neymar celebrated his 27 th birthday in typically glitzy fashion on Monday, hosting a party on the Champs-Elysees with his teammates and Brazilian celebrities in tow.
The Brazilian recently suffered a recurrence of the metatarsal injury that saw him miss the final 3 months of the 2017-18 season.
He is in danger of missing this summer’s Copa América in Brazil and amidst the glamour on Monday, Neymar tearfully rued his injury.
“What I wanted the most as a birthday present today is a new metatarsal so I could be on the field fighting and doing what I love the most, which is playing football.”
He also thanked his team mates for their support, saying: "They are giving me all the strength possible to help me return as soon as possible."
Neymar will miss both legs of PSG’s Champions League round of 16 tie with Manchester United in February.
