Tuchel Unhappy With Neymar's Madrid Trip

PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel says he is unhappy about Neymar's decision to attend the Davis Cup in Madrid.

The Brazilian striker has been out of action with a hamstring injury since the start of October and made the trip to Spain during the recent international break as a guest of former Barcelona team-mate Gerard Pique.

It was a decision which disappointed Tuchel, who said: "What can I do? I'm not his father. I'm not the police. I'm the coach.

"As a coach, am I happy with this trip? No, not at all, it's clear. Is this the time to get mad? No, no, it's not the moment. He was very professional here for two weeks. He did more than the others."

He added that the Brazilian striker is in contention for a return when PSG host Lille in Paris on Friday evening.

"He has trained with the group, he has individual work. And if everything goes well, he can play tomorrow (Friday). We have to decide if he will start the game or be a substitute." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
