Tuchel has revealed that the decision was made to rest Neymar and insisted he will play against United in Paris on Tuesday.

“Ney(mar) doesn’t have any issue. We talked together, like I did with Kylian [Mbappe],” the PSG coach said. “We had an honest discussion and I decided to let him rest today. He will be with us tomorrow. He will train and get ready for the game against Manchester United. He will be on the pitch, for sure.”
