Neymar is ruled out for 7-9 months after his ACL injury after he ruptured his ACL and also has a meniscus tear in his left knee

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Neymar is ruled out for 7-9 months after his ACL injury after he ruptured his ACL and also has a meniscus tear in his left knee..

He was sidelined for multiple months of his last two seasons with PSG because of different ankle injuries and he also missed two World Cup games in Qatar last year after he was injured in Brazil's opener against Serbia.

At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the then 22-year-old broke a bone in his back following a bad challenge by Juan Zuniga in the quarter-final against Colombia.

Brazil won that match but Neymar was ruled out for the remainder of the tournament, with his country going on to lose 7-1 to Germany in the semi-finals.

Brazil and Al-Hilal forward Neymar will have surgery after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee while on international duty.

The 31-year-old was taken off on a stretcher in tears during the 2-0 defeat by Uruguay on Tuesday.

He landed awkwardly after a challenge in the first half of the 2026 World Cup qualifier in Montevideo.

It is unclear how long Neymar will be out for.

"Brazilian and world football need Neymar healthy and recovered, because football is happier when he's on the pitch," Brazilian Football Confederation president Ednaldo Rodrigues said in a statement.

Brazil's all-time male top scorer, who moved to Saudi Arabia in the summer from Paris St-Germain, has struggled with injuries in recent years. He could miss the rest of the season and it leaves him facing a race against time to recover ahead of the Copa America in the United States next summer.


Al-Hilal posted on X, formerly called Twitter: 'The medical tests Neymar underwent confirmed the Anterior Cruciate Ligament and Meniscus tear injury in his knee. He will be going through surgery and then a treatment program that will be determined later.


Neymar knew something was wrong as soon as he went down. 

He collapsed after competing for the ball with Nicolas de la Cruz in the 44th minute, holding his left leg in pain and calling for medical attention as his team-mates looked on anxiously. 

The 31-year-old was taken off via a stretcher on wheels at half-time in clear agony and was pictured with a leg brace after the game. 

Now his worst fears have been confirmed.

This year has already been a difficult one for Neymar with regards to injuries. 

His final season at PSG was blighted by a right ankle injury in February which required surgery and meant that he played no more games for the French giants.
