The situation of Neymar Junior, Brazilian forward for Al Hilal, is in doubt after the cruciate ligament rupture. According to the Saudi media Arriyadiyah, Al Hilal has reportedly decided to suspend Neymar Junior’s contract due to the serious knee injury that will keep him out for the entire season.
The club is said to have made this decision in order to not waste one of the eight spots reserved for players not from Saudi Arabia. This move has not been well received by the former PSG player’s agents.
“Neymar Junior’s representatives are disappointed with the decision made by Al Hilal,” said a source close to the player.
The injury comes as a blow to both the player and the club, with Neymar Junior’s absence posing a significant challenge for Al Hilal’s season.
It remains to be seen how Neymar Junior’s camp will respond to this development as the situation continues to unfold.
