Barcelona’s Neymar has confirmed that he is set to undergo surgery on his throat to resolve an underlying problem with hoarseness.
The operation is scheduled for Friday.
There are a number of conditions which cause these symptoms and can be relieved surgically and without further information it is impossible to speculate which one Neymar is suffering from.
“It’s a problem that I have, my throat always bothers me, so we’re going to operate to resolve it once and for all.”
He added that it was not a serious issue.
Earlier in the summer Barcelona’s doctors revealed that they have informed the Brazilian that he needs to bulk up after his arrival at the Catalan club.
