Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel claims Neymar is one of Europe’s best players after his hat-trick against Red Star Belgrade
. The 26-year-old Brazilian star was in inspirational form at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday as PSG responded to their opening Champions League Group C defeat at Liverpool with an emphatic 6-1 win against Red Star.
Neymar grabbed three of the goals, while Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe were also on target.
Speaking afterwards, Tuchel claimed he has several of Europe’s best players at his disposal with Neymar leading the way.
He said: “Neymar is one of the best players in Europe. We have several of the best in our team – not just Neymar.
“We’ve won lots of games because we have the best players, but also because we were the best team. That’s very important.
“When you’re in good spirits, it’s easier to stay relaxed. It’s the same with Neymar. He’s confident in his form and his game – and you can see that.
“He’s very good at the moment. He’s nearly at 100 per cent of his form and physically as well.”
