Neymar undergoes successful surgery on left knee after rupturing ACL, meniscus

Rio De Janeiro: Football superstar Neymar on Thursday underwent successful surgery after suffering a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left knee during a national team match last month.

The 31-year-old sustained the injury during Brazil's 2-0 loss to Uruguay in their World Cup qualifier in Montevideo and he now faces at least six months on the sidelines.

"We were very satisfied with the results," Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said in a brief statement.

"It was a success. He will remain in the hospital for another 24 or 48 hours depending on his clinical progress," the doctor said.

Lasmar further said that "the next step is rehabilitation and physiotherapy" but he did not say when the Al Hilal star would be ready to return.

Meanwhile, Neymar posted on his Instagram stories a photo of his wrist with his hospital bracelet as well as a photo of himself with his two children along with a message that said "Everything will be fine."

Specialists have said Neymar will require up to eight months to fully recover, meaning he could miss the Copa America, to be played in the United States next June and July.
