Neymar out until at least mid-November, PSG coach says



Paris St-Germain’s Brazil forward Neymar will be sidelined until after the international break in mid-November, the French ’s coach Thomas Tuchel said on Friday.

This development follows his injury against Istanbul Basaksehir in the UEFA Champions on Wednesday.

Neymar came off a thigh muscle problem in the 26th minute of the 2-0 win over the Turkish side.

“Neymar should be back after the international break,” Tuchel told reporters ahead of PSG’s Ligue 1 game at Nantes on Saturday.

The break in domestic action runs from Nov. 11 to Nov. 17 international matches will be played.

Brazil play 2022 FIFA qualifiers at home to Venezuela and away to Uruguay on Nov. 13 and Nov. 17 respectively.
