Thomas Tuchel feels sad for Neymar after recent public criticism.


PSG Manager, Thomas Tuchel has come out to clear the air about issues on Neymar after the French Football Federation (FFF) opened proceedings against the forward.

PSG have won just one of their past six matches in all competitions, including a Coupe de France final collapse against Rennes after Neymar’s goal had put Tuchel’s side 2-0 up.

“We all feel that Neymar is sad, he’s not happy right now,” Tuchel told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Nice.

“Neymar hates losing and, of course, he is sensitive to everything that is said about him. It has an influence.

“I can only say it is easy to judge someone like Neymar, who has a very big heart. We would like him to show his heart. That would be good for us.”
