It has been a really terrible week for Brazil’s Neymar.
Days after a woman accused him of raping her in a Paris hotel, an allegation he vehemently denied and published images on social media in his defence, the former Barca player has been dealt another severe blow.
The Brazilian superstar has been ruled out of the Copa America Thursday after tearing his right ankle ligament during Brazil’s 2-0 friendly win over Qatar. A troubled Neymar was seen covering his face with his hands as he sat on the bench after hobbling from the field in the 20th minute at Brasilia’s Mane Garrincha Stadium on Wednesday night.
“Due to the seriousness of the injury, Neymar will neither be fit nor have time to recuperate sufficiently to participate” in the tournament, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said in a statement.
Sad much!He has suffered 18 injuries in 5 years.
