Soccer-Barcelona's Neymar carried off with ankle injury


Jan 16 (Reuters) - Neymar lasted less than 25 minutes of his return to Barcelona's starting lineup for their King's Cup last 16 clash at Getafe as he was carried off on a stretcher with an ankle injury.

It is the latest setback for the Brazil forward who had not started a match for the Catalan side since Christmas due to a lack of fitness and then a stomach bug last week.

Neymar twisted his ankle when he turned awkwardly close to the touchline and had to be replaced.

He has a tear to a "tendon of his right ankle", said a club statement, and further tests will be carried out on Friday. (Writing by Tim Hanlon in Barcelona; Editing by Ken Ferris)
