Barcelona Lose Neymar To Mumps

Although he was vaccinated against the illness, Neymar has come down with the mumps and the Barcelona star will miss the next two weeks of action. He will miss both the European and Spanish Super Cups.

“The first team medical staff at FC Barcelona has announced on Sunday that Neymar will be out for two weeks after being diagnosed with parotitis (mumps), despite the fact that he had previously been vaccinated against the disease,” the team said in a statement.

“Therefore, the Brazilian striker will miss the European Super Cup final on Tuesday in Tbilisi, Georgia against Sevilla and also the Spanish Super Cup final which sees Luis Enrique’s team take on Athletic Club over two legs on 14 and 17 August.”
