Fresh injury blow for PSG ahead of Man United clash
French giants Paris Saint-Germain suffered a new injury blow afer their coach Thomas Tuchel revealed midfielder Marco Verratti had suffered another injury.
The Italy international, 26, returned to training on Monday after being sidelined with a sprained ankle sustained the last month and it was considered a boost to PSG, who are set to be without Neymar until April, ahead of their Champions League last-16 tie against Manchester United beginning next week.
But after Verratti missed his side's extra-time win over Villefranche in the Coupe de France on Wednesday, Tuchel revealed the midfielder had suffered a fresh injury.
"Marco Verratti could not finish training yesterday [Tuesday]. He had problems. I have to wait until tomorrow [Thursday] to decide if he can play against Bordeaux. His new problem is something else, but I do not know too much,” Tuchel said.
PSG host Bordeaux on Saturday before making the trip to Old Trafford for the first leg of their tie with United three days later.
