XtraTime Web Desk: Brazilian star forward Neymar Jr. will undergo a foot surgery this weekend and as a result he will be out for three-months. Though its a shocking news Neymar fans but Brazil’s trainer has assured everyone that the PSG striker would definitely be available for the forthcoming World Cup which is set to start from mid June in Russia this year. Neymar had arrived in Brazil last night and the surgery of his  metatarsal and a sprained ankle will happen in Belo Horizonte tomorrow.

The doctor who will operate Neymar feels that it would take tow and half to three months to recover and that means the world’s costliest player will return in training in mid May, just a month before the World Cup starts. Though as per the trainer, the 26-year old forward would be match fit before their first match of the World Cup against Switzerland on June 17.

“I am certain (he will be ready),” Fabio Mahseredjian told TV Globo. “I can affirm that there is sufficient time for him to be ready for the first match in the World Cup. “Neymar will be there with very few games or training sessions under his belt, basically as if it is the start of the season.

“The surgery will mean he has a physical deconditioning, he will have lost some of the physiological effects that he gained during the season with PSG.”

“I have no problem at all in saying that this could even be good for us because he won’t have played a lot of games,” Mahseredjian added. “Physiologically he will probably be in very good shape and we think psychologically as well.” The injury means the 26-year old will miss Brazil’s friendlies later this month against World Cup hosts Russia and reigning champions Germany.

After their opening match against Switzerland, the five-times World Cup winners will then face Costa Rica and Serbia. “Neymar is, of course, upset, sad, down,” surgeon Rodrigo Lasmar said. “But he understands that there is no option now other than to recuperate and dedicate himself to recuperating so he can be good as soon as possible.” PSG confirmed the injury on Wednesday, ruling him out of the club’s Champions League last-16, second leg, against Spanish holders Real Madrid. The French outfit lost the first leg in Madrid 3-1 back in February.
