Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has reacted to Neymar’s injury against Marseille in the French Ligue 1 on Sunday night.

Neymar suffered an injury towards the end of the game and was stretchered off in the 3-0 victory against Marseille.

Al-Khelaifi was not a happy mood after seeing the world most expensive player stretchered off the pitch as the injury to the Brazilian forward overshadowed the 3-0 comfortable victory.

Neymar twisted his ankle before falling to the ground in excruciating pain and rolling on the turf with just 10 minutes to end the game.

Al- Khelaifi was captured by the camera as his facial expression looked dull and sad when Neymar was tied to the stretcher and made his way off the field.

He was pictured open-mouthed, no doubt wondering whether he would be fit for the upcoming Champions League second leg against Real Madrid.

PSG had a huge task ahead of them in the Champions League against Real Madrid after they fell 3-1 to the European giants at the Santiago Bernabeu and the French outfit needs all player to be available for the clash next week Tuesday.

Former PSG and Marseille star Edouard Cisse spoke about Neymar’s injury after the game and suggested Unai Emery’s side will struggle against Real without the Brazil international.

“The ankle has turned pretty well,”

“Will he be there against Real? Will it be 100%?

“Without him, it would not be mission impossible, but when one fantasises the scenario of a Paris qualification, it is necessary that the 20 players are at 100%,” he told Le Parisien.

The extent of the injury is yet to be known and the day of his expected return has not been revealed as he is yet to go through medical examination as of the time of this report.
