Neymar: Paris Saint-Germain fearful over Brazil superstar after departing field in tears


Neymar, 26, has been in sublime form this season with 20 goals and 10 assists in 21 games across all competitions.

And against Lebo Mothiba's Strasbourg last-night, he was on the receiving end of some heavy challenges before departing the field with what appears to be a recurrence of the serious foot injury he suffered last season.

After the 2-0 win in the Coupe de France, Strasbourg's Anthony Goncalves blasted the showboating Brazilian who attempted a 'rainbow flick' overĀ Moataz Zemzemi - who fouled him on three separate occasions.

"He is a great player, I respect him. He can enjoy himself but don't come blubbering afterwards."

However, Tuchel confirmed the player who has been accused of play-acting suffered serious damage.

"It was a situation where he was fouled three times, one after the other. The referee didn't give anything. He twisted his foot," said Tuchel. "Ney is worried because it is the same foot, the same place."

It's since been confirmed that Neymar suffered a 'reactivation of the lesion of the fifth right metatarsal' - which could rule him out of next month's crucial UEFA Champions League tie against Manchester United.
