PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel has said it is quite clear that Neymar is feeling the effect of the clubs’s recent poor run of form, as the French Football Federation (FFF) recently opened proceedings against the Brazilian.
The Ligue 1 champions have won only one of their last six matches in all competitions, which includes a Coupe de France final defeat.
Neymar allowed his emotions take control of him after the penalty shoot-out loss as he appeared to punch a fan as a battle ensued when he tried to retrieve his runners-up medal.
Thuchel said, “We all feel that Neymar is sad, he’s not happy right now,”
“Neymar hates losing and, of course, he is sensitive to everything that is said about him. It has an influence.
“I can only say it is easy to judge someone like Neymar, who has a very big heart. We would like him to show his heart. That would be good for us.”
On the players that will be fit for the next set of games, he said, “We’re going to wait and see if Kurzawa and Edi [Cavani] are available tomorrow for Nice, Thiago Silva, Thilo Kehrer and Thomas Meunier are absent, Kylian [Mbappe] is suspended.
“We are currently in a weird period with many players still absent, but we have overcome many obstacles with a small squad all season.”
