No matter how much wealth you have, oil money is expected to be hit. Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal recruited superstar Neymar (31) with astronomical money, but the season out was decided two months after the recruitment. 안전놀이터
The Brazilian Football Association reported on its official website on the 19th (Korea Standard Time) that Neymar ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus of his left knee as a result of an MRI examination.
It’s actually out of the season. In the case of a cruciate ligament rupture injury, it takes about a year to recover. There are many cases in which they cannot find their normal condition even if it takes more than that due to serious injury conditions. “Son Heung-min’s teammate” Tottenham midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur has not yet set an exact date for his return after suffering a ruptured cruciate ligament in February. Considering Neymar’s considerable age and frequent injury history, there is a possibility that the recovery period will be extended further.
Neymar played against Uruguay in the South American regional qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup at Estadio Centenario in Montevideo, Uruguay, on the 18th. However, he complained of pain during the competition with his opponent at the end of the first half. Neymar was quite sick as if the injury was serious, and he was eventually replaced with tears. Everyone was paying attention to Neymar’s exact state of injury, which eventually resulted in the worst results.
The damage to his team, Al Hilal, is also significant. He recruited Neymar last summer with a big mind, but he lost his team ace in just two months. Al Hilal and Neymar signed a two-year contract. It was a condition that he would pay Neymar a total of 300 million U.S. dollars over two years, including his annual salary. Neymar’s transfer fee alone amounted to 90 million euros. But al-Hilal has long been forced to lose Neymar.
Immediately, he lost about 200 billion won in annual salary. Moreover, the risk is greater because it is a two-year short-term contract. The contract period with Neymar could expire without writing properly. Al-Hilal sent a message of support to the unfortunate situation. Al-Hilal said on the club’s SNS, “Neymar suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament. The rehabilitation schedule after surgery will be decided. “Be stronger and come back,” he said. Neymar played against Aliyad on the 15th and made his debut in the Saudi professional league. But once again, he was unlucky with injuries.
The Brazilian national team, led by acting coach Fernando Dinis, is also a big hit. The road to the North and Central America World Cup has become rough. Even the current grades are unstable. It has two wins, one draw and one loss (seven points) and is in third place in the South American regional qualifying round. Fourth-ranked Venezuela (seven points) has the same points as Brazil, and fifth-ranked Colombia (six points) is also closely chasing. It’s a situation that I can’t rest assured.
Recently, Brazil has been in a slump. He had three wins, two draws and one loss in seven games this year, and only one win, one draw and one loss in the last three games. He won a tough 1-0 victory over Peru in September and tied 1-1 against Venezuela, which is considered a weak team, on the 13th. He failed to recover the downbeat atmosphere and lost until this match against Uruguay. On top of that, Neymar was also injured, which is expected to be a thorny road.
Argentina ranks first in the South American regional qualifying round, winning all four games (12 points). Uruguay (seven points), where Federico Valverde (Real Madrid) plays, has risen to second place, beating Brazil. Neymar also expressed his regret at the frustrating situation. He suffered from frequent injuries throughout his career, and this injury is also more heartbroken because he was injured shortly after recovering. “It’s a very sad and worst moment,” Neymar said on social media, adding, “I know I’m strong, but I think I need more of my friends this time. “It’s not easy to get injured and have surgery, but I have to go through the same situation again after recovering from my injury for four months.” he wrote.
Neymar also suffered an ankle injury earlier this year and went through about six months of rehabilitation. He returned to the ground last August. However, he was injured again in two months. There were messages of support for Neymar’s quick recovery. Lionel Messi (Inter Miami), who played with Neymar in Barcelona, Spain, wrote, “Cheer up.” South Korea’s captain Son Heung-min also pressed “like” on the post and expressed his sincerity.
Brazilian national team teammate Casemiro (Manchester United) also said, “Neymar was injured every time his condition came up. He said, “I had a hard time,” and cheered, “I hope it’s not a serious injury.”
