‘Scared’ Neymar anxious to return

Paris Saint Germain

Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar admits he is anxious about a return to competitive football with the World Cup on the horizon.

The 26-year-old has been out of action since February after breaking a bone in his foot but is now back in training and eyeing a return to the pitch in the not too distant future.

The Brazil ace missed the recent Coupe de France final win and reports suggest he will not play for PSG in the final Ligue 1 game of the campaign against Caen on Saturday.

Brazil face Croatia in a World Cup warm-up game on June 3 ahead of this summer’s showpiece event in Russia and Neymar is desperate to play his part.

The former Barcelona man admits it has been a tough period and is nervous of what awaits him over the next few weeks.

‘No-one is as scared as me,’ he told TV Globo. ‘I know that people are a little nervous, but nobody is more so than me, no-one is more anxious to make a comeback than me.’

‘It’s a very difficult time, I think it’s the most difficult I have had because we are so close to my dream, the World Cup. Thanks to God, I have this new opportunity to become world champion with my country. It’s a dream I’ve had since I was little, it’s my main objective. I hope it will be my cup.’
