German Thomas Tuchel, coach of Paris Saint-Germain, avoided guaranteeing the presence of Neymar in this Tuesday’s game, against the Borussia Dortmund, for the round of 16 Champions League, but hinted that the chances of the Brazilian being on the field are good.
“He trains with us normally, because in training he is less exposed, he is less at risk than in a game. The risk decreases every day, but we have to make a collective decision,” commented the team commander, at a news conference.
Tuchel admitted that the definition of Neymar’s presence on the field next Tuesday, at the Signal Iduna Park stadium in Dortmund, will depend on the opinion of the PSG doctors and also of the player himself, who took a blow in the back with O Montpellier, fur French Championship, on the last day 1st.
The German coach even asked for caution with the situation of the Brazilian, who, he believes, will suffer from the pace of the game against Dortmund for the period away from the lawns.
“Despite this, I am convinced that he will help us. Afterwards, he will once again chase a sequence of games and recover the big moment,” said Tuchel.
