Thomas Tuchel has just declared that Neymar is out of PSG’s Champions League tie against Manchester United on February 12.
The Brazilian walked off in tears after coming off with a suspected fractured metatarsal in Strasbourg in the French Cup on Wednesday. Neymar was repeatedly kicked and fouled by the opposition in the match before he picked up his injury, with Tuchel claiming it’ll be ”super difficult” for him to return for the game.

With Neymar set to miss the tie, all the emphasis is now on Marcus Rashford and Kylian Mbappe’s showdown. Rashford has scored 5 goals in 6 games and Mbappe notching 7 in 7, meaning that both young ballers are primed to go head to head when they lead the line in next month’s huge fixture at Old Trafford.
After his hat-trick last weekend, Kylian Mbappé landed a SIF card in FIFA 19’s latest Team of the Week.
