Tuchel confirms Neymar will play against Lille

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 2,980

PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, confirmed in a press conference that Neymar will return for PSG's next match against Lille on 22nd November

"Neymar feels good, he's training well and will be with the team for next Friday's match," Thomas Tuchel said in the press conference. 

"Did I like his trip to Madrid for the Davis Cup? No. But I'm not his dad or the police. But he has been very professional during these two weeks", the PSG manager added.

The Brazilian star has recovered 100%, training fully for weeks, so all going well, he could also be available for the Champions League match away to Real Madrid on Tuesday.

However, before returning to the Bernabéu, the Brazilian must test himself against Lille, to get back into the swing of things and see how he feels on the park.

He will return after not playing in a month, with the fans hoping that he can find consistency until the end of the season.

Although he has only been able to play five matches in Ligue 1, the former Barcelona player has scored four goals, until he picked up a grade 2 injury to his left femoral biceps on 14 October during a friendly between Brazil and Nigeria. 

However, PSG fitness coach, Xavier Frezza, commented on the physical condition of Neymar in a statement gathered by 'Mundo Deportivo': "It is impossible that Neymar will be 100% this Friday. In my opinion, PSG should know that he won't be 100% until February. It's been a long time since he's been three months in a row without playing. 

"Neymar can not go from anything to everything, directly, it is complicated, the club needs him and he wants to play, but his body is not ready to play many games, "Frezza added.

In addition, Tuchel has also confirmed that Mbappé will return this Thursday to training, but that he remains a doubt for Friday's match: "He is currently sick, we have to wait to make a decision".
