PSG Manager Thomas Tuchel Confirms Neymar Will Miss Strasbourg Game Due To Injury

share on:

Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain’s next Ligue 1 game after seemingly suffering a recurrence of his groin injury, according to manager Thomas Tuchel.

Neymar gave PSG the lead at Bordeaux on Sunday, the goal standing after a long VAR check, but picked up an injury in the second half of the game

Kylian Mbappe fired PSG back in front after Jimmy Briand levelled, but Andreas Cornelius headed a late equaliser to end Tuchel’s winning run in Ligue 1 at 14 games.

PSG are back in action in midweek, away at Strasbourg, and Tuchel has already ruled Neymar out for the trip.

The Brazil captain was injured on international duty last month, hurting his groin against Cameroon in Milton Keynes, and missed the league win over Toulouse as a result.

“I think it’s the same injury,” Tuchel said to Canal+. “But I haven’t seen yet.

“We have to be careful. He said it was not a problem playing today.

“Hopefully, we will have him back after the Strasbourg game.”
