Neymar says he had ‘complications’ after tonsil op

neymar-barcelonaThis story keeps getting stranger and stranger as Neymar says has experienced health problems since he had his tonsils removed last month.

While the Barça forward has lost seven kilos since the operation, and has been diagnosed with anemia, he sought to calm Barça fans’ nerves at an event in Thailand to promote his new Nike boots.

“It’s true that after the tonsil operation there were some complications, but now I’m feeling better,” he said.

The 21-year-old has been receiving treatment for his condition during the club’s tour of Asia but declared he was able to train as normal.

It just strikes me as strange that when playing for Santos and Brazil that Neymar was never diagnosed as being anemic. Surely he had blood work done as part of his fitness evaluations before?
