Tuchel provides injury update on Neymar ahead of Man United clash

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has revealed Neymar will be available for selection when they take on Manchester United as the Brazilian was rested against Nimes. 

Neymar was not part of the PSG squad that beat Nimes 4-0 on Friday night with superstar Kylian Mbappe grabbing a brace. Tuchel opted to rest Neymar having featured for Brazil in a World Cup qualifier against Peru three days before Friday's match. 

The PSG boss says has revealed he expected the Brazilian to be available for selection when they take on United next week on Tuesday. 

"Ney doesn't have any issue. We talked together like I did with Kylian," he said. 

"We had an honest discussion and I decided to let him rest today. He will be with us tomorrow. He will train and get ready for the game against Manchester United. He will be on the pitch, for sure."

The Ligue 1 giants have been without Neymar for the last four of their seven games this season.
