Neymar misses 6-8 weeks with ankle injury

Paris Saint-Germain have announced this afternoon that Neymar will miss 6-8 weeks of action as a result of the ankle injury he picked up against Saint-Étienne on Sunday.

The Brazilian picked up an ankle sprain as well as a ligament injury following a challenge from Les Verts defender Yvann Maçon just minutes before the end of the 3-1 win.

Nevertheless, midfielder Marco Verratti has returned to training following his hip injury, with striker Mauro Icardi expected to follow him tomorrow.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Ander Herrera will make their comeback by the end of the week, with Julian Draxler set to do the same after he recovers in the 2-3 weeks to come.
