Neymar in line for PSG return

Neymar could be in line to make his Paris Saint-Germain return against Monaco today, claimed head coach Thomas Tuchel.

The Brazil superstar has not played competitively since damaging a metatarsal in a Coupe de France win over Strasbourg on January 23.

Neymar, who has 13 goals in as many Ligue 1 outings this term, began training earlier this month but has not yet been fit enough to feature.

However, Tuchel says Neymar is closing on a comeback, which may come this weekend against  Monaco as PSG attempt to finally wrap up the title after missed opportunities against Strasbourg, Lille and Nantes.

“We have to wait, there are two training sessions left. Maybe it will be Sunday, I hope,” Tuchel told a pre-match news conference.

“Neymar trained a lot with us, he worked hard and strong. He is impatient it is clear, when he is with us at training he shows it. I can feel that Ney feels free, he is not afraid, he is confident, he hits, he is decisive during the training matches.”
