The season-ending ankle injury suffered by Neymar for Paris Saint-Germain is a “great stroke of luck,” according to former World Cup champion Christophe Dugarry.
After his team’s 4-3 victory over Lille last month, the PSG attacker was carried out on a stretcher in tears. It has subsequently been determined that the Brazilian player will miss the rest of the season.
The ruptured ligaments in Neymar’s ankle now require surgery to be repaired.
But, Christophe Dugarry has given the Brazilian winger a harsh review, suggesting that the French champions would have been better off without their record signing.
Dugarry, who won the World Cup with France in 1998 told RMC Sport: ‘I’m happy for PSG that Neymar is injured. I think this is an incredible opportunity, an amazing stroke of luck for Christophe Galtier.
‘The team is much more balanced with five defenders, three midfielders and Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi up front.’
Dugarry added: ‘I can’t bear to see him anymore, I can’t stand him anymore.
‘I find him insufferable in his dribbling and with that attitude. I don’t want to see him on the field anymore, I’m tired.’
