Paris Saint-Germain have received a major boost with the news that Neymar has sufficiently overcome his bout of Covid-19 to feature in their squad for Sunday’s Classique against rivals Marseille.
News broke that the Brazil international had tested positive for the virus at the beginning of the month along with several other team-mates.
Of those players who were among the initial cluster at the club, Angel Di Maria, Keylor Navas and Leandro Paredes are ready to take part in the Parc des Princes clash.
Speaking on Saturday, head coach Thomas Tuchel suggested that he would recall the four stars.
“They want to play, it’s clear. I will decide tomorrow. We must not wait too long if there are no risks,” the former Borussia Dortmund boss explained.
Neymar, meanwhile, had announced his return to collective training earlier in the day via social media.
He posted: “I went back to training, super happy #CORONAOUT”.
