Paris Saint-Germain manager backs Neymar to bounce back

Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has backed Neymar to bounce back after his average showing for Brazil during the summer World Cup. The 26-year-old was injured for Paris Saint-Germain during the final three months of the previous campaign but he thereafter struggled to inspire Tite’s men to glory at the World Cup.

As a result, there has been plenty of criticism from the Brazil faithful regarding his showing but Tuchel has backed Neymar to return to his old self with Les Parisiens, he said: “Everything impacts everything. I don’t think he needed this to be extra motivated. Of course, the whole Brazilian team expected more. Of course, it affects your approach to the players.
