(VIDEO) Instead of taking care of the injury, the new sport Neymar practices although not training normally in Arabia

Neymar suffered a tough injury that has left him out of action since October 2023

Neymar uploaded to his Instagram stories where he can be seen playing golf in Saudi Arabia. In addition to the fact that it can be seen that he still needs to work on his swing, the videos have unleashed criticism on the Brazilian player, as he is still recovering from the ruptured cruciate ligament in his left knee, an injury he suffered during Brazil's 2-0 defeat against Uruguay in a match corresponding to the Conmebol qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.

To perform the swing movement in golf, the knees of the player in question play a fundamental role, and for that reason Neymar has received criticism since he has not even returned to train normally with the rest of his teammates of Al-Hilal, the club that paid 90 million euros for his signing, according to the Transfermarkt portal. In addition, it is worth remembering that 'Ney' is one of the highest paid soccer players in the world, since according to data from the portal Salary Sport, he receives a salary of almost 129 million dollars a year.

However, Neymar has barely been able to participate in a total of five games with the Arab club in which he has scored just one goal and provided 3 assists, which would be paying him around $25.8 million per game if we make the conversion of what he earns and what he has played. Playing golf is not the first major criticism of the former Barcelona and PSG player, as a few months ago, while injured, he went on a three-day cruise, a situation that certainly did not please the owners of his club.

When would Neymar return?

The injury suffered by Neymar was extremely delicate, so much so that it has been confirmed that the Brazilian star will not play for the remainder of the season and will also miss this summer's Copa America, which will be played in the United States, and would return until the following season. It is expected that his recovery will continue to progress, although the latest videos are not very encouraging since he can be seen with a lot of pain in his knee when performing exercises, which only increases the criticism towards his new hobby of golf.
