"Neymar is already in his room".
PSG had previously given no timescale on Neymar's recovery, but said it will be six weeks before Neymar is able to resume training. This followed an earlier statement from Lasmar that the star player would be out of action for at least two and a half months, maybe three.
For Brazil, where Neymar is also seen as a key match victor, the concern is to get him playing before the World Cup in Russian Federation, which starts in June.
Brazil, however, will be concentrating more on the World Cup, which starts on June 14 in Russian Federation.
Neymar - transferred from Barcelona to PSG last August for a record 222 million-euros (S$360.9m) - broke his foot while playing in a 3-0 win over Marseille on Feb 25.
Asked Friday whether the club had lost control of Neymar, PSG coach Unai Emery said both sides are working hand-in-hand.
"An assessment will be conducted in six weeks in order to determine the possible date of his return to training".
It meant a three-minute substitute cameo against Guingamp was the sum of the time Matuidi spent on the field with the Brazil superstar in PSG colours, but Neymar was well aware of his quality. "It´s not a simple fracture, but a fracture in an important bone in the middle of the foot", Lasmar said.

There was no immediate comment from the United States, where it was dawn when the statement was released. This article has been adapted from its original source .
"Neymar is sad, but understands that he has no alternative now".
"There is absolutely no split, despite what was written".
After a remarkable turnaround in fortunes since the shambolic exit in a 7-1 semifinal loss to Germany in the 2014 World Cup, Brazil are seen as top contenders in Russian Federation.
A big part of that optimism, though, depends on the talented Neymar.
Jose Luiz Runco, a former chief medical officer for the Brazilian team, tells AFP that the surgery "is not difficult".
"He's likely to recover pretty quickly because he's an athlete and young". Neymar, the world's most expensive football player, struck a relaxed pose, putting up a picture on Instagram of himself in a wheelchair with his actress girlfriend Bruna Marquezine sitting on his lap and kissing him.
"Internally, we speak with much clarity", said Emery.
"I don't think we can really talk about fears of him not being at the World Cup".
