Neymar leaves hospital after undergoing operation to fix right foot fracture

Lasmar said this past week that the Brazilian national team's medical squad will help Neymar recover "as quickly as possible" although it will take approximately three months.

The Mater Dei Hospital in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte said Neymar left on Sunday morning.

The Paris Saint-Germain player will begin his post-operation recovery at his mansion in Mangaratiba, along the southern coast of Rio de Janeiro state, local media reported.

There have been suggestions that the 26-year-old could be out for three months and he will be eager to be fully fit to represent Brazil at this summer's World Cup, which gets underway on June 14.

The Brazil forward underwent a successful operation on his injured right foot over the weekend after fracturing his metatarsal playing for Paris Saint-Germain against Marseille on February 25. The operation consisted of the laying of a screw associated with a transplant fixed at the level of the lesion of the fifth metatarsal of the right foot.

PSG doctor Gerard Saillant added the timing of Neymar's return could only be given at the six-week mark, with the French league leaders confirming his rehabilitation would be "under the control of the club's physiotherapist". "Neymar's injury will be assessed in six weeks' time to establish a possible date for his return to training".
