Tuchel 'very happy' after Neymar avoids ban but demands PSG signings to repeat Champions League run

 The Ligue 1 champions' manager pondered his team's chances in Europe and offered an update on his star striker's fitness on Thursday

Neymar has handed Paris Saint-Germain a fitness boost ahead of Friday's Ligue 1 contest with Angers but head coach Thomas Tuchel doubts his side can repeat their run to the Champions League final without strengthening the squad.

Brazil star Neymar sustained a calf injury in the 2-0 beating of Reims, while Idrissa Gueye has been contending with an ankle complaint, but when asked to provide an update on both players, Tuchel delivered a positive message for the club's fans.

"Two bits of good news - they [Neymar and Gueye] have been part of the last two training sessions with good intensity," Tuchel told a news conference. "They are ready and fit, neither of them has any problems at the minute."
