French giants PSG have received a blow as they are set to be without Neymar for two months.
Neymar had to be carried off the field on Sunday after sustaining ligament damage in his left ankle when he was fouled by Yvann Macon in the 85th minute during their 3-1 win against Saint-Étienne.
The incident resulted in an ankle ligament injury that will most likely sideline Neymar for up to eight weeks according to reports from ESPN.

Following the game, the Brazilian player took to Instagram to address concerns about his injury and said, "Unfortunately, these sorts of setbacks are part of an athlete's life. You have to raise your head and move forward. I will come back better and stronger."
Neymar has been an important player for PSG since joining them from Barcelona. The Brazilian has bagged three goals and three assists through 10 Ligue 1 matches this season and has 59 goals and 36 assists through 80 career league matches for PSG across parts of five seasons.
