Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar will not require surgery on his injured right ankle and should be fit again within four weeks.

Neymar suffered a severe sprain of the outer lateral ligament playing a friendly against Qatar on Wednesday night, ruling him out of the upcoming Copa America tournament.

PSG said in a statement Saturday that two of the club’s doctors evaluated Neymar’s injury and decided it will heal without an operation.

The 27-year-old Neymar also injured the fifth metatarsal in his right foot this season and last.
