One of the world’s most prominent footballers, Neymar has uncovered that he once weeped for two straight days in his room.
Brazil striker Neymar says he sobbed for two days in the wake of breaking a metatarsal bone in his correct foot in late January, BBC reports.
The Paris St-Germain star is out until April, having supported the issue in a French Cup diversion against Strasbourg.
It is similar damage he endured in February a year ago which put his World Cup in uncertainty, however this new blow “is progressively confounded”, Neymar said.
“This time I had an extreme time getting over it,” the 27-year-old revealed to Brazilian TV channel Globo.
“I went through two days at home crying.
“The first occasion when I hurt myself I stated, ‘I’ll have an activity, it must be fixed as fast as could be expected under the circumstances’. I wasn’t tragic.”
A year ago, Neymar was out for three months after medical procedure, returning without a moment to spare to play in the World Cup where he scored twice in Brazil’s rushed to the quarter-finals.
This time, PSG’s therapeutic staff have settled on moderate treatment of the crack instead of another task.
PSG said that Neymar will be out for around 10 weeks, which means he will miss their Champions League last-16 tie against Manchester United, which the French side lead 2-0 after a week ago’s first leg at Old Trafford. The second leg is in Paris on 6 March.
