Neymar Leaves Training Session With Right Ankle Injury

Jun 19, 2018 12:03 PM

Neymar left Tuesday's training session after just 15 minutes with a right ankle injury.

Brazil's doctor says the injury is related to a foul he suffered in Sunday's match and not his recently broken right foot.

Neymar limped as he walked away from the field toward the dressing room.

Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar left as a precaution after feeling soreness while jogging. 

"What we can do is to calm down," Lasmar said. "A shorter workout was planned for the starters today, they're still in a regenerative process. Neymar trained a little, felt the pain, returned to physical therapy and tomorrow trains normally."

Eden Hazard Needs Chelsea To Improve To Remain With Club

Jun 18, 2018 9:28 AM

Eden Hazard said he wants to remain with Chelsea, but acknowledged the club must improve for him to do so.

Chelsea finished fifth in the Premier League last season after winning the title in 16-17.

"If I stay, it's for the team to be better than it was than in the season we have just gone through," Hazard told L'Equipe. "I don't want to stay for it to be worse. I have won everything in London other than the Champions League. If I'm in this position in my career, it's thanks to Chelsea.

"It would be too easy to say I want to leave because I've done everything here. That's why, above all else, I would like to know what will happen at the club next year. I am waiting to see if the coach stays or leaves."

Chelsea remain in limbo with their managerial situation as Antonio Conte has been unwilling to walk away from the £9 million he is owed and the club is also unwilling to pay the compensation required to remove Maurizio Sarri from his contract with Napoli. 

"Real Madrid could interest me, everyone knows that," he said. "But if tomorrow that club doesn't want me anymore, we won't talk about it again. If they want to buy me, they know what they have to do.

"Going there for going there's sake, no. There has to be a project. I still have a project with Chelsea. If I have a good World Cup, things will be easier."
