Brazilian Doctor: Neymar Recovering Well from Injury

Rodrigo Lasmar, the doctor of the Brazilian national football team, confirmed on Monday evening that striker Neymar is recovering well from the surgery he underwent on his knee last month. However, there are no expectations regarding his return to the field.

Neymar suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament and the meniscus in his left knee while playing with the national team. He underwent surgery earlier this month at Belo Horizonte Hospital.

Lasmar stated in a press conference at the Brazilian national team's training center in Teresopolis that the 31-year-old player is responding "very well." However, the recovery process will be lengthy, and he must focus on this process.

The doctor added, "He has shown from the very beginning that he is executing what we suggest. He knows it's a process where each of us, the physical therapist, and the fitness trainer, will need to work together to recover him as quickly as possible."

Lasmar, who performed the surgery for the international forward, mentioned that it is not possible at this time to determine a date for Neymar's return to the Saudi Professional League, where he plays for Al Hilal.

He added, "Injuries vary from player to player. Generally, there are associated injuries that can be equally important, such as meniscus injuries. All of this makes the process more complicated with a slower recovery period. That's why we're not talking about a timeline."

Neymar joined the Saudi Pro League leaders in August, coming from Paris Saint-Germain, where he spent six years.

Brazil, currently in third place in the South American qualifiers for the World Cup with seven points, will face Colombia, ranked fifth with six points, on Thursday. After that, they will host Argentina, the leader with 12 points, next Tuesday.
