Neymar's injury recovery seems to be going well. He has debuted a new look.

The 31-year-old has rocked several hairstyles over the years, from mohawks or faux-hawks, going green, blonde and even pink.

Therefore, he is not afraid of trying something new or different. This time around, he went full bald, making him totally unrecognisable.

With his recovery journey just starting, Neymar will surely try different hairstyles to show off to his fans.

The Brazil star recently welcomed his second child with Bruna Biancardi and has been sharing photos on social media.

Neymar pens emotional statement

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Neymar's deep physical and emotional pain, expressing as much after the severity of his injury and the timeline for his recovery were stated.

The Al-Hilal star was stretchered off during Brazil's 2-0 loss to Uruguay in the CONMEBOL edition of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier in October, after which the worst was confirmed.

Neymar's participation in the 2024 Copa America set for June is now in serious doubt. He became Brazil's all-time leading scorer in September, passing the late Pele.
