PSG Medical Update: The Latest on Neymar; Meunier Out a Month

Paris Saint-Germain’s medical update on Friday revealed the status of several players, including Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Thomas Meunier, and Neymar Jr.

The report was a mix of good and bad news for the club that has been bitten by the injury bug since the start of the season.

Meunier played a full 90 minutes last Tuesday against his former team, Club Brugge, in the UEFA Champions League and late in the second half, you could tell he was in some discomfort and after the match, there were worries that he could have a serious injury. After examinations, Meunier was diagnosed with a “lesion of the femoral biceps of the left thigh.” According to Le Parisien, Meunier will not likely return to training until after the next international break on November 19.

Herrera started the match against Brugge but could only make it 72 minutes before being subbed off due to pain in his adductor muscle. Additional tests and examinations will be conducted on Saturday to see if the former Manchester United midfielder can play on Sunday against Olympique de Marseille.

More good news for PSG came with the news that Gueye is progressing favorably from his hamstring injury suffered while on international duty with Senegal. Fans won’t see him on Sunday against Marseille but a return to the pitch soon after seems likely.

Remember Kehrer? The German defender has been out since the beginning of the season with a foot injury according to and the club remains vague on the details other than he is training individually and that they’re very satisfied with his progression.

Neymar, who was left out of the Brazil squad for their upcoming friendlies against Argentina and South Korea as reported by the Daily Mail, continues to recover from a hamstring injury he sustained with Brazil during the last international break at a good pace. Le Parisien reports that PSG’s #10 won’t likely be back training before November 10.
