Neymar stretchered off during PSG tie as bosses sweat over suspected ankle injury


PSG superstar Neymar has sparked fierce concern after being stretchered off during Sunday afternoon’s tie with Saint Etienne. Coaches and chiefs watched on with worried expressions as the Brazilian is suspected to have suffered an ankle injury, which threatens to side-line him in their quest for domestic and European honours. 

The Parisians were aiming to extend their mammoth lead at the top of Ligue 1 via a trip to Saint Etienne. 

Three second-half goals, split between Marquinhos and Angel Di Maria, were enough to see them through to a 3-1 victory, but they did not have it all their own way. 

A contentious sliding tackle saw the 29-year-old fall to the ground, immediately signalling to the medical staff for assistance. 

Several minutes later, sporting director Leonardo was seen watching on with a distinctly worried expression as one of PSG’s prized assets was carried off the pitch.
