Lionel Messi sent out a get well Facebook message to injured Barcelona teammate Neymar on Friday. Upon receiving word that the Brazilian playmaker had fractured his third vertebra, Messi posted the following note and picture:
Neymar, ¡espero que te recuperes muy pronto, amigo!
Get well soon my friend, Neymar Jr.
Neymar was injured in the 87th minute of Brazil’s 2-1 victory over Colombia. Doctors have determined that the fractured vertebra will not require surgery, but that Neymar will need to be immobilized in order to fully heal. He will sit out the remainder of the World Cup, and no timetable has been given for recovery time.
