PSG Confirm When Neymar Will Return From Injury

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has been ruled out of action until after the November international break after sustaining a groin injury.

And head coach Thomas Tuchel is now set to have to lean on the on-loan Everton man Moise Kean further after confirmation that the Brazil star is set for a couple of weeks on the sidelines due to the issue.

“We're sad,” the coach said. “He's got a small injury to his adductor. He'll be back after the break. I don't think he can play for Brazil. The information that we have is that he'll be back after the break.”

PSG have three games to play before the international recess, beginning with a Ligue 1 encounter against Nantes on Saturday then continuing with a critical Champions League match away to RB Leipzig and then a home encounter against in-form Rennes next Saturday.

It is hoped, however, that the 28-year-old will be back in action by the time Tuchel takes his side to Monaco in another Ligue 1 match on November 20.
