It is expected that the ‘MNM Trio’ of French professional football Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will not be available until January next year.
PSG announced through its official channel on the 30th (hereafter Korean time) that striker Neymar suffered an ankle injury and was unable to play for six to eight weeks.
Neymar, along with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, is a superstar in PSG’s attacking triangle.
Neymar broke his ankle and was carried on a stretcher in the process of a tackle at the end of the away game against Saint-Etienne on the 28th.
Neymar, who has scored three goals in the regular season this season, is a bad news for PSG that Neymar is out of the squad, but it is not a big blow as he is cruising in the regular league and the UEFA Champions League (UCL).
In League 1, PSG has 13 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (40 points), leading by 12 points to 2nd place Ren.
In the UCL group stage, they finished second in Group A and qualified for the round of 16.
