Will PSG Star Neymar Miss Champions League Game v Manchester United?

Neymar JR of PSG during the French Cup match between Paris Saint Germain and Strasbourg at Parc des Princes

Of course, that's worrying because we need him, he's a very, very big player who can make the difference.

There is no way Neymar will be fit for the first leg in just over two weeks time but if PSG really want to take a risk, they could push him back for the second leg but it seems unlikely.

'Marco Verratti's MRI scan conducted after the match against Guingamp confirmed a twisted left ankle without any further damage, ' a statement posted on their website said on Sunday.

"No, I did not talk to Neymar [after the game] because he's in the hospital", Tuchel told Eurosport. "It was a situation where he was fouled three times, one after the other".

Tuchel's side prevailed at the Parc des Princes thanks to a goal in each half from Edinson Cavani and Ángel Di María, although Strasbourg midfielder Anthony Gonçalves expressed no sympathy for Neymar and even suggested the injury was a direct result of how he plays.

Strasbourg coach Thierry Laurey also said Neymar's attitude is all wrong.

It's now unclear how long Neymar will be out of action for after he left the Parc des Princes in tears during the second half of Paris Saint-Germain's 2-0 win over Strasbourg in the Coupe de France. Tests in the coming days will reveal how serious it is.

Tuchel added: "The doctor is anxious, "Ney" is anxious, because it is the same foot, the same place". We're not here for a laugh, ' Goncalves said.

PSG face an anxious wait to learn the extent of Neymar's problem, with the Brazil global having been sent to hospital after coming off in the second half of his team's 2-0 win.

'He can amuse himself, that's his style and I think people come to watch that. 'I can understand my players having enough of players who are looking to tease them, mock them.

PSG visit Old Trafford in the last-16 first leg on February 12, before hosting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's rejuvenated Man United side in the return game on Mar 6.
