Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar arrived in Brazil in a wheelchair ahead of surgery on his broken foot.
The Brazilian required assistance after touching down in his homeland, where he will have surgery on the injury, which he sustained last weekend, this Saturday.
The 26-year-old fractured a metatarsal and sprained his ankle during Sunday's 3-0 win over Marseille, and is expected to be out of action for up to three months.
