Neymar Out Of PSG Squad For Match Two Days After Birthday Party

Neymar is out of the Paris St-Germain squad for their league match at Nantes today with a rib injury. The Brazilian, who needed treatment during PSG’s victory against Montpellier on Saturday, celebrated his 28th birthday. Manager Thomas Tuchel said his team selection would not be influenced by the timing of the party. The club confirmed on Monday that tests had shown Neymar suffered the cartilage injury during the first half of Saturday’s Ligue 1 match. Neymar was not the only PSG player Tuchel was questioned about – after a touchline spat with Kylian Mbappe in the 5-0 weekend win.
