Neymar goes off in tears with ankle injury ahead of Manchester United clash (Video)

Neymar was forced off with an ankle injury as PSG defeated Strasbourg 2-0 in the last 32 of the Coupe de France.

The Brazilian forward went down in a heap in the second half and tried to play through the pain after some initial treatment on the touchline at the Parc des Princes. However, Moussa Diaby came on as a substitute in the 62nd minute and Neymar was in tears as he made his way down the tunnel.

Asked about Neymar’s injury after the final whistle, Tuchel replied: ‘No news for Neymar but he’s worried. “It’s the same foot [that he injured before the World Cup].”
