Paris Saint Germain have been left sweating on the injury of Brazilian attacker Neymar after he was stretchered off during their win over Saint-Étienne on Sunday.
The Brazilian left the field in tears after rolling his ankle in a tackle and was later seen leaving the stadium on crutches.

The 29-year-old Neymar will undergo an examination on Monday to determine the full extent of the injury and whether any bones were fractured in the challenge with earlier reports from teh club indicating that he might have just sprained his ankle, and could miss around six weeks of action.
If that is the case, Neymar should be back in action in time for PSG’s first Champions League knockout tie in February and perhaps Brazil’s next World Cup qualifier at the end of January.
