Neymar in tears with ankle injury ahead of clash with Manchester United

PSG 2-0 Strasbourg

PSG secured a 2-0 victory over Strasbourg in the Round of 32 of the Coupe de France but it was Neymar fightful-looking ankle injury that dominated the headline. PSG will face Manchester United February 12 in the first leg of Champions League Round of 16 

Edinson Cavani scored the early opener in the 4th minute to give PSG a perfect start. Angel Di Maria scored the second goal 80th minute to secure the win for the French giant.

Neymar went down in the second half but tried to play through the pain after some initial treatment on the touchline at the Parc des Princes. However, Moussa Diaby came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute and Neymar was in tears as he made his way down the tunnel.

Neymar appeared to have landed on his ankle while dribbling past Strasbourg midfielder Moataz Zemzemi.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel said: “No news for Neymar”  he’s worried – ‘It’s the same foot that he injured before the World Cup.’

PSG will have to wait to discover the severity of Neymar’s injury as they prepare for their trip to Old Trafford on February 12. The return leg of the Champions League last-16 tie takes place on March 3.
