Neymar Admits He's 'Afraid' Ahead of Return from Injury, World Cup

Neymar Returns To Full Training

Neymar stated these anxieties played a part in him spending the majority of his rehabilitation surrounded by family and friends in Brazil.

"Nobody is as scared as me", he said on Tuesday.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has not played since February after having surgery on a broken metatarsal bone in his right foot, which he suffered while playing for the Ligue 1 club against Marseille.

'Nobody is as scared as me [about returning],' Neymar told Brazilian station TV Globo.

Neymar left Barcelona last August to join PSG for €222 million (S$351.7 million), becoming the world's most expensive football player in a transfer that upset Barcelona fans.

We may not see Messi and Neymar team up for Barcelona anytime soon, but the two global superstars may very well lock horns at the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation. "I think it's one of the most hard I've ever had, because I'm very close to a dream I have, which is the World Cup", said Neymar, who broke a bone in his neck in the quarterfinals of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and missed the semifinal, which the hosts lost, 7-1, to Germany. "It is my goal".

Last summer's world record signing from Barcelona has not featured for PSG since, but is expected to be fit for his country's World Cup warm-up with Croatia on 3 June. "I do not need to go to another team to prove anything", the Argentina worldwide said when asked about moving to another club. Brazil are aiming to add a sixth star on their shirts.

According to L'Equipe a total of €1.645m was raised for the PSG Foundation at the gala dinner at the Parc des Princes making over €1m more than previous year.

Brazil begin their Group E campaign against Switzerland on June 17 and will also take on Costa Rica and Serbia in the round-robin phase.
