Leonardo denied that Neymar was expelled from German coach Thomas Tuhle, noting that he was training alone because he was "following a personal rehabilitation program" related to a right leg injury which he suffered before the last start of Copa America.
Regarding Neymar's health, Leonardo said: "He is a Paris Saint-Germain player who has three years in his contract. We must not forget this. We need to analyze everything and arrange everything to get back in the game."
Leonardo responded with allegations that Neymar did not receive good treatment in the spring of 2018 when he also received a metatarsal injury, saying: “ Things are simple.
It is noteworthy that the deal to rebuild Neymar from the Germans may involve the acquisition of Barcelona players such as Brazilian Felipe Coutinho or Croatia's Ivan Rakitic.
