"Contrary to what might have been written or said., decisions already taken and those to come have had the complete agreement of Neymar of course, and of his family, all the staff at PSG, the medical staff, the organisation and management of PSG, and the representatives of the CBF", Saillant said.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward fractured his fifth metatarsal during his side's 3-0 defeat of Marseille in Ligue 1 on February 25 and is expected to miss the next three months.

However, the 26-year-old is expected to recover in time for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

A spokesperson for the Brazilian football federation confirmed the operation was a success.

Lasmar said he expected Neymar to be out of action between two-and-a-half and three months and return just in time for the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The injury has triggered concerns for the player's availability for this year's World Cup.


The Saturday operation repaired a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

"When you think how exhausting the European season is, he could even arrive fresher than the others, both physically and emotionally", said Cristiano Nunes, the physiotherapist for Brazilian club Internacional.

"He will be re-evaluated in around six weeks in order to specify a possible date when he can return to training".

According to Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar, Neymar is set for a spell on the sidelines that could last up to three months - though he does expect him to be fit in time for the World Cup in June.

NEYMAR is seen for the first time since having surgery on his foot as he boards a private jet. "He will devote himself to being well as soon as possible", said Lasmar.

The Ligue 1 leaders face Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday.
