Oh dear Neymar. After so much good press and praise for your wonderful form on the the pitch, you've gone and done something very silly indeed, at least according to Spanish newspaper Sport.
Barcelona confirmed last night that the Brazilian Ballon d'Or nominee, who didn't feature in the 1-1 draw against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last night, has suffered a 'small muscle injury' and now faces a spell on the sidelines.
While that may be a fairly common occurrence in football - how it happened is not. According to Sport, Neymar suffered his groin strain while trying a sombreo trick - over team-mate and fellow member of MSN.
According to the report, the former Santos star felt pain after trying to lift the ball over Suarez's head as during a quiet moment in the training session. The Sport report claims: "The squad were taking part in their usual rondos and Neymar tried to lift the ball over Suarez, who ran to intercept it. The Brazilian streched to avoid him but went too far, and in that moment he heard a creak."
Luckily enough, the injury doesn't seem to be serious and he could be back in action for the World Club Cup final on December 20.
Here's a video of Neymar pulling off the sombrero trick without twanging his groin, while scoring a superb goal against Villarreal recently:
It's not the best news for fans of Barcelona after Lionel Messi missed training following the 1-1 Champions League draw with Bayer Leverkusen last night - although the club say that was because of 'personal reasons' and not because of a reported hamstring injury.
