Neymar underwent surgery on November 2, and his results were satisfying for the doctor. However, understanding the severity of the trauma, the doctors have revealed that it will be a slow process for his recovery, which will take seven to nine months. Another factor in his improvement will be his own effort, which will improve his recovery time. According to the team doctor, he is in the initial stages of recovery.

The doctor said, “He’s doing a lot of work, but the key thing at the moment is increasing mobility in his knee and gaining strength in his leg. And of course, he is doing strength and conditioning work.”
