Saudi Professional League side Al Hilal have been slammed for their choice of graphic when wishing Neymar a speedy recovery.
On Tuesday night, Neymar was in action as Brazil took on Uruguay in the 2026 World Cup qualifying round.
Goals from Darwin Nunez and Nicolas De La Cruz sealed a 2-0 win for Uruguay.
Brazil’s poor night was worsened by a serious knee injury suffered by Neymar, who was replaced at the end of the first half.
On Wednesday night, it was confirmed that the 31-year-old had ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee.
Posting on social media, Neymar’s club, Al Hilal wrote: “The medical tests “NEYMAR ” underwent, confirmed the Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus tear injury in his knee, he will be going through surgery and then a treatment program that will be determined later.
“Return Stronger @neymarjr.”
However, the Saudi Arabian club have been slammed for their choice of graphic after they included a picture of Neymar screaming in pain.
On Instagram, Neymar wrote: “It's a very sad moment, the worst. I know I'm strong but this time I'll need my (family and friends) even more.
“It's not easy going through injury and surgery, imagine going through all that again after 4 months of recovery. I have faith, even too much... But the strength I put in the hands of God so that he can renew mine. Thanks for the messages of support and love.”
This summer, Neymar was linked with the likes of Manchester United, Newcastle United and Chelsea before sealing a move to Al Hilal from Paris Saint Germain.
