Champions League: PSG star Neymar ruled out v Bayern Munich

Brazilian superstar Neymar has been ruled of Paris Saint-Germain’s crucial Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

PSG boss Christophe Galtier has confirmed that the former Barcelona superstar has damaged his ankle ligament, and won’t be featuring against the German giants.

The Parisiens lost the first leg 1-0 at home, and their task of qualifying for the next round gets difficult following the injury to Neymar.
“Neymar will not be available for (the) next two games — he’s one of the top scorers and assist providers in Ligue 1, that’s a big loss”, Galtier said, as relayed by Romano.

Losing Neymar is a big blow for the French side. However, PSG have a strong squad to beat any side in the Champions League.


Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has reportedly rejected PSG’s contract renewal due to wage disagreement.

The 35-year-old, who won the World Cup with Argentina, has been in sparkling form, scoring 17 goals and providing 16 assists in 28 games across competitions.

PSG have asked Messi to lower his salary due to financial fairplay rules, but the Argentine forward is yet to agree a new deal.
