Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Neymar Junior could be included in the squad to face Real Madrid in the first leg of the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League at Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening.
The Brazilian has been sidelined for some time and will be returning, but Pochettino has indicated he could be included. “You have to be careful what you expect,” the Argentine midfielder told Diario AS.
“You have to live in the truth. Everyone creates their own hopes. Expectations are unscientific and the truth is something else. He may be in a group. He comes in very well and can fit in with the squad. I hope you will because you are an important player for us. ”
Neymar is one of the most talented footballers in the world and he doesn’t get caught up in the song. The Brazilian midfielder joined PSG in the summer of 2017 from Barcelona and has led the French club to three Ligue 1 titles.
Madrid are also top of the table, but are four points adrift of Sevilla in second place in La Liga. They will come into the match without full-back Karim Benzema and a 0-0 draw at Villarreal’s La Ceramica on Saturday afternoon.
