Neymar says he is around a month away from completing his recovery from a foot injury, with Paris Saint-Germain also confirming his rehabilitation is on track.
The Brazil international required surgery after suffering the injury in the Ligue 1 win over Marseille in February and has since missed the French giants' last nine matches in all competitions.
However, some good news is that Neymar expects to be back in action in May, telling NBC: “I need about a month, but it is healing well. Everything is happening normally."
PSG also said in a statement: “The medical assessment by Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar confirms the excellent evolution of Neymar Jr’s injury, and authorizes the specific re-education of the right ankle and progressive full weight-bearing on the foot.
“The speed of recuperation over the next ten days will allow the club to set a date for the player’s return to training.”
