Tuchel: We Can Cope Without Neymar


PSG head coach, Thomas Tuchel insists they can cope in the absence of Neymar, after they fell to a 2-1 loss against Lyon.

The Parisiens are without Neymar for the next two months, after he suffered a broken metatarsal against Strasbourg.

Di Maria opened the scoring for PSG, but goals from Dembele and Fekir handed Lyon the 2-1 win.

PSG head coach Tuchel found some positives and is confident his squad can cope without Neymar, particularly as the Champions League nears a return.

“I do not know it we missed them but it’s clear that we do not have a second Neymar or a second [Marco] Verratti, but I have full confidence in the other players,” he said.

“There were a lot of chances on the line with Angel and [Julian] Draxler who made a very good match.

“We were too passive after our first goal, we lacked precision, we made bad decisions. Lyon played with a lot of quality, but I liked our second period.”
