Champions League: Neymar likes to fight – Pochettino

Paris Saint-German manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said Neymar likes to fight to win, but his emotions overpowered him, as he was sent off during their 1-0 defeat to Lille last weekend.

Speaking ahead of today’s Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich, Pochettino said;

“He was very excited to start a match. He’s an emotional player.

“He likes to play, he likes to fight, he’s a competitor. He didn’t deserve that red,” “He knows he has to channel himself. I hope that tomorrow everything will be fine,” Pochettino said.

Pochettino said PSG will not have revenge on their minds against Bayern, after losing to the Bundesliga champions in last season’s final.
