Thomas Tuchel has stated that he can not control the reactions of the Paris Saint Germain supporters to Neymar before his possible return on Saturday.

Marquee striker Neymar still has to play for PSG this season after moving to Barcelona this summer, but the deal failed after lengthy talks.

The Brazilian star could return to the side on Saturday in the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1 against Strasbourg, and Tuchel admits that he can not interfere with a potentially hostile reception of the home crowd.

He said, "I can not understand that all the supporters are satisfied with the situation in Neymar and what happened.

"But I can not influence the fans' reaction, I can not control them, the only thing I can control is what happens in my team."

Neymar was open-minded to retreat, and after an interview in which he shared how much he enjoyed playing in Barca's 6-1 humiliation of PSG in the 2017 Champions League, saw himself hostile to PSG Ultras and a banner exposed, which invited him to get lost. ,

Tuchel added, "Life is not too hard for Neymar, living and playing in Paris is not too hard!

"If you talk about everything that's said all the time, we're going crazy, that's not possible.

"Neymar is a PSG player, so he can play tomorrow, he trained yesterday, I expect him to train well today and then he'll be ready to play."

"We are pleased that the transfer window is finally closed and now we can concentrate on ourselves."
