Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Brazilian star Neymar will be out injured until after the international window after hurting himself at Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday.
The world's most expensive player went off injured in the first half and Tuchel said on Friday: "We are sad for Ney. He has an abductors injury and will be back after the international window. Honestly, Ney will not be able to play for Brazil. There's not any thinking to be done. The news is that he will be back with us after the international window."
"In every match we lose a player"
The German coach spoke about the busy fixture list: "We are going to kill players. They have no rest. Players go away and play for their nations during the international windows. There's no time for recovery and preparation. In this context, in every match we lose a player. We are not the only club in this situation. Clubs like Manchester City, Liverpool and Bayern Munich are like us. Football is a game played by players. And if there are no more players."
