What They're Saying: Neymar

"What I wanted the most as a birthday present today is a new metatarsal so I could be on the field fighting and doing what I love the most, which is playing soccer."

-- Brazilian star Neymar, at his 27th birthday bash in Paris, which he considered canceling due to the foot injury he recently suffered. It's the second year in a row he broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot. The Paris St. Germain star hopes to return by mid-April -- in time for the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals if PSG can get past Manchester United in the round of 16, which begins next week.
