Neymar remains sidelined from knee surgery and will miss his Saudi Pro League champions Al-Hilal's pre-season training, coach Jorge Jesus said on Tuesday.

"All I know now is that the time given to Neymar to recover and during similar injuries is approximately from 10 to 11 months.

"If we calculate mathematically, he will not be ready at the beginning of the pre-season training," Jesus told reporters in Riyadh.

Neymar underwent surgery in his native Brazil last November to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and meniscus damage suffered during a national team match the month before.

The 32-year-old was stretchered off in tears during Brazil's 2-0 loss to Uruguay in a World Cup qualifying match on October 17, after colliding with opposing midfielder Nicolas de la Cruz.

Whilst he may have been absent from the pitch Neymar has been busy off it recently.

He was ringside to witness Oleksandr Usyk beat Tyson Fury to win the world's first undisputed heavyweight championship in 25 years in Riyadh on Sunday.
