Neymar has been ruled out for 12 months after injuring his hand on a fan’s face.

The freak accident occurred following last night’s French Cup defeat to Rennes when the Paris St Germain forward swiped a supporter round the face as he climbed the Stade de France steps to collect his runners-up medal.

Although there appeared to be minimal contact the Brazilian dropped to the floor clutching his wrist before executing seven perfect rolls and making a booking gesture to nobody in particular.

“We hoped that, perhaps with a bit of strapping, he would be fit for Tuesday’s trip to Montpellier,” said PSG manager Thomas Tuchel, after watching Neymar unleash the jab with the kind of half-arsed enthusiasm he has regularly shown since his move to France.

“But he suggested it was best to wait until after his sister’s birthday next March just to make sure.”
