PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel has said he knew nothing about Neymar’s trip to Turin 2 days before the Coupe de France final.
As per reports, Neymar jetted out of Paris to attend an event alongside co-Brazilian, Douglas Costa
His journey abroad happened less than seven days after he returned from a three-month injury in last weekend’s Ligue 1 vs Monaco.
However, Thomas Tuchel has dismissed knowing anything about Neymar’s pre-match movements.
His words, “I do not know about it,”
“I’m not his father, not the police, not a detective.
“I’m the head coach and he was at training yesterday and with us today. That’s it.”
On Kylian Mbappe’s Ligue 1 tally of 30 goals for the season, Thuchel said, “He’s been a reliable player, a decisive player,”
“His status is growing, he’s getting more important, but I think he enjoys it and he’s ready for it.
“We are not talking theoretically here. Everything happened naturally. He took on more responsibilities.
“I have several key players in my team and it’s always a team effort as we demonstrated during important games this season.
“We have to showcase once again tomorrow for 90 or 120 minutes that we can play together, defend together, but Kylian has done really well and he’s extraordinary, that’s for sure.”
