Neymar is expected to be sidelined for between six and eight weeks after sustaining ligament damage to his left ankle, Paris Saint-Germain said on Monday.

The Brazil star was stretchered from the pitch in tears after suffering the injury in the final minutes of Sunday's 3-1 victory at Saint-Etienne.

"The examinations carried out last night confirm that Neymar Jr suffered from a sprained left ankle with ligament damage," PSG said in a statement, adding that a further update would be made in 72 hours.
