Neymar omitted again as PSG face Rennes

Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian forward Neymar, pictured in China in August 2019, denied all wrongdoing

SAINT-GERMAIN-EN-LAYE, France, Aug 17 – The world’s most expensive footballer Neymar will again be absent when Paris Saint-Germain take on Rennes on Sunday in the second round of Ligue 1 matches, coach Thomas Tuchel said on Saturday.

“Ney didn’t finish the training with the squad today,” said Tuchel. “It’s too early. We’re waiting another week for him to start with the group again.”

“When I think of a strong team, it’s with him,” added Tuchel. “Nothing has changed, he has three years of contract.”

PSG bought Neymar for 222 million euros ($261 million) from Barcelona in 2017, but has made clear he craves a return to Spain, whether with his old club or Real Madrid.

Leonardo, the PSG sporting director, has confirmed that the club have held talks with potential buyers.

“The transfer window will close in a month,” said Tuchel. “For the moment, he’s my player.”

The Brazilian has not played for PSG since he injured his ankle at the end of May.

PSG beat Nimes in their opening match 3-0.
