Barca’s Neymar Ruled Out for a Month

Barcelona will play without Brazilian Neymar for four weeks due to a foot injury.

The 22-year-old international was injured in Wednesday’s King Cup final defeat by Real Madrid.

The record signing from Santos will now miss his club La Liga game at home to fourth-placed Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

If his recovery process goes as plan, he could return for the season-ending game against current leaders Atletico Madrid, at which time the Catalans could be relinquishing the title they won last season.

The news of Neymar’s injury opens another chapter in the tales of a disappointing season, when hiss £48.6m move from Santos has been placed under microscope and ex-club boss Sandro Rossell has had to resign.

It also completes a dreadful few days for the Nou Camp outfit, who were knocked out of the Champions League, pegged back by four points in the title race, and then lost the cup final.
