Paris St Germain midfielder Marco Verratti has been ruled out of playing for the rest of the season with a groin injury and will miss the French Cup final, the Ligue 1 club said on Thursday.

"Marco Verratti underwent surgery on his adductor muscle tendons," PSG said in a statement.

PSG added that the Italy international, who has been troubled by groin injuries in the past, would be fit to resume the 2018-19 season with the Parisian club.

PSG, who have already secured the Ligue 1 title, play third division side Les Herbiers in the French Cup final on Tuesday.
