Neymar Jr is "sad" not to be able to train with his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates, Thiago Silva has revealed.

Neymar returned to the Ligue 1 Conforama champions' training centre late last week in the next phase of his recovery from a fractured foot that has sidelined him since late February.

The Brazilian hopes to be back on the pitch before the end of the league season, but Tuesday's Coupe de France final against Les Herbiers comes too soon for him.

The 26-year-old will have to suffer on the sidelines with the club's fans as his team-mates attempt to complete a third domestic quadruple in four seasons.
