Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel, has expressed doubts that Neymar will be fit to face Manchester United, in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

Both Neymar and Marco Verratti are fighting to be fit to face United in European action on February 12, after the South American suffered an injury to his right foot which was operated on last year.

He picked up the knock during Wednesday’s Coupe de France win over Strasbourg and was taken off in the second half.

A PSG statement confirmed that Neymar has suffered a recurrence of the metatarsal injury that threatened his World Cup hopes last year, and Tuchel doubts that he will be fit in time for the opening leg.
