Thomas Tuchel is the worst coach PSG have had

PSG’s Neymar a Champions League doubt for Dortmund last 16 trip

PSG’s Neymar a Champions League doubt for Dortmund last 16 trip

The Brazilian hurt his ribs during PSG's 5-0 win over Montpellier on February 1 and, although the injury didn't seem serious, he's missed the last three games against Nantes, Lyon and Dijon.

"I can't guarantee 100 percent that he'll be able to play against Dortmund", Thomas Tuchel said on Wednesday.

"We will discuss and decide on Friday, the latest possible time to do so".

Neymar's team-mates Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Marco Verratti, and Idrissa Gueye also were unavailable for the midweek cup victory and are likely to sit out Saturday's league match at Amiens.

And Fernandez, who turned out as a defensive midfielder for PSG in his playing days before going on to take in two spells as the club's head coach, doesn't expect that to change under the current management, with other big names still seen as better placed to deliver European glory. "We will have a strong team, but if we have little doubts, we won't take risks", Tuchel said.

Neymar now faces a race against time to be fit for the first leg of PSG's Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund next Tuesday. Before, we have a match and we will not be taking any risks.
