“He has a pain in an adductor, we will see tomorrow (Thursday) if it is an injury or not”, explained the Argentinian technician, at the dawn of a new Neymar soap opera.
Injured for the round of 16 return leg of C1 against Real Madrid in 2018, also for the double-confrontation against Manchester United the following year, “Ney” has a long history of absences at this time of year.
Before the trip to Camp Nou, his former stronghold, Neymar is causing great concern to PSG, which must already do without Angel di Maria, hit in a thigh.
In Caen, after a series of faults suffered, the Brazilian left the field without waiting for his replacement, during the match.
After two shocks in three minutes, the last with Steeve Yago, “Ney” remained long seconds on the ground. Visibly upset, he then exchanged a few words with the Norman defender.
As the game resumed, the Brazilian continued to complain about the rough treatment he received, before heading directly to the locker room (57th).
Kylian Mbappé replaced him three minutes later.
If he grimaced on the pitch, holding onto the groin area, Neymar appeared to be walking properly in the halls of the stadium, according to images from broadcaster Eurosport.
“We do not know the nature of the injury. We will see tomorrow after the exams (the severity of the injury)”, swept Pochettino.
The Argentinian assured that he had no regrets at having made the Brazilian evolve on this difficult ground, in a very cold.
“These are the current conditions in France. It was the same in Angers, Marseille or Lorient. It is inevitable. Neymar had gastric problems before Marseille (where he was replacing), he had to be protected. Today, he is in perfect condition to play, these are things that happen in football, ”he explained.
“I don’t want to talk about the opponent’s way of playing. But during the match, there is a feeling of having little protection. But it’s not only in this match,” he said. -he adds.
