FIFA to pay Al-Hilal £6.5m following Neymar’s ACL injury

FIFA may be required to pay Al-Hilal a sum of £6.5 million ($8m) due to the severe injury Neymar sustained while playing for Brazil internationally.

Neymar was forced off the field on a stretcher, visibly distressed, after suffering a knee injury during Brazil’s World Cup qualifying match against Uruguay.

Subsequently, Al-Hilal confirmed that Neymar had endured damage to his anterior cruciate ligament and will need to undergo surgery, facing a lengthy period of recovery.

FIFA, as the governing body of international football, possesses the FIFA Club Protection Programme (CPP), an insurance policy that compensates players who sustain injuries representing their national teams.

This program will cover a player’s salary for a period ranging from 28 days to one year, with a maximum payout FIFA of £6.5 million. Therefore, Al-Hilal will receive the maximum compensation from this policy.

However, Al-Hilal will incur further expenses as a result of Neymar’s injury, as the player’s existing contract reportedly amounts to £276 million ($351m) over two years.
