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.”
