Tuchel: Neymar Not Fit To Captain PSG

Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has ruled Neymar captaining the club after the Brazil international scored one and assisted another in the 2-1 win away at Angers in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

The 27 year old playing in his final PSG match of the season before his three-game suspension for an altercation with a spectator during the Coupe de France final kicks in, opened the scoring with a diving
header and teed up Angel Di Maria for another headed effort.

“No [on Neymar being a future PSG captain], we have two captains in Thiago Silva and Marquinhos — we will not be changing that,” said the German in his post-match interview.

“For me, Neymar does not have the profile to be a captain with the armband.

“He is a technical leader through his creativity, but he is not an armband-wearing captain. It is not necessary that he wears it and I do not understand why everybody is suddenly speaking about this.

“We must be respectful — we have Thiago and Marquinhos, who are fantastic.”

After the match, former Brazilian captain took to social media to say “until next time” to Ligue 1 ahead of his ban.
