PARIS: Neymar will once again miss Paris Saint Germain against Brest in Ligue 1, manager Mauricio Pochettino said today.
Not playing since being injured when facing Lyon in December, Neymar has yet to fully recover from an ankle injury.
“He will be assessed today, and we will think of a strategy from there,” said Pochettino, who took over on January 2 but has yet to bring down the club’s main star.
The early morning match tomorrow will be Pochettino’s first assignment at home since being appointed.
“We will have a better idea if he can be together, we will wait for the decision.”
Neymar’s loss raises doubts as to whether he can play in the French Champions Trophy against key challenger Marseille on Wednesday.
