Now that Paris Saint-Germain was eliminated from the Champions League in the duel against Bayern Munichin which he could not be neymar Due to the fact that he will undergo ankle surgery, there was a debate about whether his presence could have changed the outcome, something we will never know for sure, but it reignited the rumor that this intervention could have been carried out years ago and thus, the team’s stellar trident could have been complete in the crucial game.
And it is that according to what was published by the French newspaper L’Équipe, since 2017the year in which the Parisian club acquired the Brazilian soccer player, They already knew that the striker’s right foot “was in poor condition” and that “it would have been prudent to operate on it immediately.”
However, the warning was not taken into account, apparently because the player would have been left out of any football activity for that entire year, something they did not want to assume, hoping that the player’s leg would heal with time and therapy from the medical team. .
As we already know, this did not happen, rather the opposite happened, since Neymar continuously suffered discomfort due to this injury, constantly missing matches and only what was imminent was prolonged: In the next few days the surgical intervention will be carried out, which cannot wait any longer. and that left him out of the Champions League round of 16 series that his team lost 3-0 against the Germans on aggregate.
“The pain was very strong”, published L’Équipe, as justifying the club’s decision to finally undergo surgery on the player who still has 4 years left on his contract. “Given this finding, there weren’t many solutions. Without surgery, the player and PSG were at high risk of relapses in his ankle by the ligaments injured by sprains or the many blows received. The operation appeared as a last resort”, concluded the newspaper.
