PSG forward Neymar in tears, leaves field on a stretcher in Ligue 1 loss to Lyon

Neymar was stretched off the field after suffering an injury in Paris Saint Germain‘s 1-0 loss to Lyon on Sunday night and appeared to be in tears.

Neymar was carried off the pitch seven minutes into stoppage time with a possible ankle injury following a poor tackle from Thiago Mendes.

Paris Saint Germain have not confirmed if the injury suffered by the Brazil international is serious or not.

It is not the first time Neymar had suffered an injury since signing for PSG.

The 28-year-old has fractured his metatarsal twice since arriving in August 2017 and missed the 2019 Copa America after rupturing his ankle ligaments.

Mendes, the culprit, was sent off for the horrendous challenge but it did not affect the outcome of the game as PSG dropped down to third in Ligue 1 after Tino Kadewere’s goal earned the visitors victory.

The French champions surrendered the top spot in Ligue 1 to Lille, who claimed a 2-1 win at home against Girondins de Bordeaux earlier.

Lille now has 29 points from 14 games, leading second-placed Lyon on goal difference with PSG on 28 points after their fourth defeat of the season.

Olympique de Marseille are fourth on 27 points with two games in hand, in a tight top five separated by three points.
