For his father, there is no doubt: Neymar will be present at the kickoff of the game against Liverpool on Wednesday.
All the lights look green. An uncertain time due to a pain addicted in the last match played by Brazil against Cameroon, Neymar should finally be in the game for the shock of the Champions League against Liverpool. In any case, this was assured by his father at 48 hours of this crucial meeting against the Reds.
“There is nothing serious, it plays Wednesday,” he said and launched at the microphone of UOL Esporte on the sidelines of a charity event organized in Sao Paulo Monday evening by the NGO I Know My Right, supported by the Instituto Neymar, and this before excusing the absence of his offspring at this charity event. “It was very difficult for Neymar to come because of his schedule, he is very busy and totally involved in his work.” A return trip to Sao Paulo two days before the match against Jürgen Klopp’s men would obviously have been unwelcome …
These remarks are in any case that confirm the trend observed in recent days. On Saturday, Dani Alves was also optimistic after the success against Toulouse (1-0). “I’m sure Neymar will play, because he knows the team and the club need him”, said the Brazilian defender back to the competition after six months of absence. Above all, the No. 10 Parisian trained normally on Monday, along with Kylian Mbappé, touched on the shoulder with the Blues against Uruguay. Expected at a press conference on Tuesday, Thomas Tuchel should therefore bring good news for Paris fans.
