(Reuters) - Paris St Germain forward Neymar will continue treatment on his foot injury in Brazil under the supervision of the club’s medical team, the French Ligue 1 side have said.

Brazil international Neymar was ruled out for 10 weeks last month after he injured a metatarsal in his right foot during a 2-0 French Cup win over Strasbourg on Jan. 23.

The club confirmed that the injury was a recurrence of the problem that threatened his World Cup participation last year.

“As part of the treatment... PSG has decided to send Neymar to Brazil for 10 days,” PSG said in a statement, adding that the 27-year-old would leave on Thursday.
