MOST COMMENTED

Neymar, who was carried off the field after just 22 minutes during Barcelona’s 2-0 home win against Getafe on Thursday, is expected to miss three weeks of training after spraining his ankle, but he should recover in time for Barca’s UEFA Champions League clash at Manchester City on February 18, according to Mundo Deportivo.

"All the images that have been seen of Neymar have given us a lot of calm," Barca coach Gerardo Martino told AS after the game on Thursday. "Thanks be to God it was not as important as it could have been. I would prefer for the doctors to talk. We do not think that, if it is confirmed, that it is something which needs a lot of time.”

Speaking to Catalan TV, Lionel Messi, who scored both goals during the Copa del Rey win, said: "The truth is it is a pity. Tomorrow he [Neymar] will have more tests to see how he is, and we hope it is nothing serious and that he is not out for a long time as we need him. He is very important for us, and we want him back soon."
