This coming week, Paris Saint-Germain will host FC Barcelona in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie at the Parc des Prince. One of the questions people have heading into this fixture is Neymar Jr.’s availability, who plenty want to see him play against his former club.
During his press conference with the media, manager Mauricio Pochettino discussed the progress that Neymar has made and the thought process concerning his status for the match against Barça.
“He will not be in the squad against Brest. We are happy with his progress, and we will see in the days to come if he can be part of the squad against Barcelona,” Pochettino said.
Furthermore, the Argentine tactician touched on whether his side is already looking toward the second leg against Barça.
“We must give importance to tomorrow’s match in the Coupe de France. Brest will inevitably make things difficult for us. Our focus is on tomorrow’s game,” Pochettino said.
