Neymar: I cannot walk freely without an orthopedic shoe

Brazil star Neymar said on Sunday he is "recovering well" from a foot injury and is on schedule to be ready for the World Cup, NY Times reported.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker had surgery in March on a cracked fifth metatarsal in his right foot.

Neymar told a TV Globo variety show that he feels no pain, but he cannot put his injured foot on the ground without an orthopedic shoe. He arrived on stage using two walking sticks.

"There is still a month left, but I am recovering well. It is all according to plan," the Brazilian said. "I feel no pain; I am stepping little by little. I cannot walk freely without the shoe, but I am in treatment, I am working out at the gym too. I am preparing well."
