Neymar Jr tells haters to ‘s*ck it’ for calling him fat amid ACL injury recovery

After his sensational move to Saudi club Al-Hilal from PSG amidst historic return speculation to Barcelona, the Brazilian player Neymar Jr. was expected to set the league on fire, but his debut season was put to dust early in the season when the player got injured just after two matches in the SPL.

The Al-Hilal forward suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus in his left leg on October 17, 2023, and has been suffering from the knee injury since then, as it was reported to keep him on the sidelines for the next nine months. While recovering on the sidelines, the Brazilian forward has come out, replying to the haters who have been hitting him with remarks about obesity and fat.

Neymar Jr slams haters for obese remarks

Recently, while going live on social media, the Brazilian forward responded to criticism against him, stating that it would be too much to call him fat and that he accepts that he might be overweight right now. The former Barcelona player said:

“Overweight, great. But, fat? I don’t think so !”

“Suck it, haters! Put up with it or freak out !”

Although some fans have been thrashing names at the Brazilian forward for some of his health and lifestyle both on and off the field, he has been constantly working out to get back to fitness during his time on the sidelines. Recently, some reports have come out showing an exclusive video of Neymar Jr. hitting the gym before his intended return to world football.

Neymar Jr., who was signed by PSG from Barcelona for the then-record transfer fee, is currently playing for the Saudi club Al-Hilal, who are currently leading the total race this season with a lead of 7 points.

When will Neymar Jr return from his ACL injury?

The superstar, who has constantly been suffering from recurring injuries, has missed many important matches for both his club and country. Recently, the player missed a possible reunion match against Messi, Suarez, and Co. when his club won against Inter Miami 4-3 last Monday.

According to reports, the player is set to miss the upcoming Copa America 2024 due to injury for Brazil’s national team, who have been facing a tough time losing the last three matches to drop to sixth in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers in the absence of their star forward.

As the player seems likely to miss the upcoming tournament, Brazil’s team doctor has come out and commented on the matter. He conveyed that it’s too early for the player as the knee injury takes at least 9 months, and there is no point rushing things, specifically in the case of Neymar, who has been injury-prone for years now.

“It’s too early, there’s no point skipping steps to recover sooner and taking unnecessary risks.”

Do you think if the injuries weren’t so often, Neymar could have reached much greater heights in his career? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
