PARIS, May 17 — Neymar has been allowed to fly back to Brazil after he resumed training with Paris St Germain so that he can get ready for the World Cup, his Ligue 1 club said yesterday.

“Neymar partially resumed training with his team mates today at the Parc des Princes and started his physical preparation with the ball,” the Ligue 1 club said in a statement.

“The fact that he is not available for the game at Caen (in the last round of Ligue 1) means that he has been allowed to go back to Brazil tonight to (continue his rehabilitation with the national team).”

Neymar, who joined PSG from Barcelona for a record €222 million (RM1 billion) last August, has been out of action since spraining his ankle and fracturing his fifth metatarsal on February 25, which led him to undergo surgery in Brazil.

He was named in the Brazil squad for the June 14-July 15 World Cup finals in Russia.  — Reuters
