Neymar not captain material, insists PSG boss Tuchel

Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel believes Neymar "does not have the profile" to become a future captain at the club. 

The Brazilian was on target on Saturday afternoon as the Ligue 1 champions beat Angers 2-1 for their first away win in four games. 

"For me, [Neymar] does not have the profile to be the captain with the armband," Tuchel said of the 27-year-old who was appointed Brazil captain last September. 

"He is a technical leader and attacker. I do not understand why everyone is talking about this thing. We have Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, they are fantastic and we are not going to change."

Neymar was last week given a three-match suspension for an altercation with a fan during their French Cup loss to Rennes last month.
