Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has mixed feelings about the attitude of the club's fans towards Neymar. The supporters turned on Sunday during the home game with Nimes en masse against the star player.
Neymar keeps things busy in Paris. The Brazilian is eager for a transfer and for that reason remained outside the selection against Nimes. During the competition, the PSG supporters with banners and chants announced that they were done with Neymar.
"It's difficult and I don't know what to say about it. I saw it on my assistants' telephones, because I didn't get it during the race," Tuchel said.
"Whether I understand? Yes and no. He is still a player of this club and I always protect my players. Although I can imagine that not everyone understands what he has said and done."
The 27-year-old Neymar is mainly associated with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. PSG director Leonardo announced on Saturday that the case is going without saying which club it is.

Neymar arrived at PSG in 2017
Neymar exchanged Barcelona two years ago for 220 million euros for PSG. Since coming to Paris, he has played 58 official games, scoring 51 times and giving 29 assists. He won two league titles with the club.
The 97-time international of Brazil, who was recently acquitted in a rape case, won ten prizes in his four years at Barcelona.
Without Neymar, reigning champion PSG on Sunday was 3-0 too strong for Nimes. Edinson Cavani (penalty kick), Kylian Mbappé and Ángel Di María scored the goals. Last week PSG already captured the French supercup.
