Emery: Neymar is ready to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut


Neymar is ready to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut in Sunday’s Ligue 1 clash at Guingamp if he receives official clearance to play, says head coach Unai Emery.

Neymar had to take a watching brief for PSG’s season-opener against Amiens last weekend, although he was presented to the club’s faithful at the Parc des Princes.

Emery says Neymar has integrated well with the squad and hopes to see him in action at the Stade de Roudourou.

“First, we will wait for the Federation to approve [that he can play],” Emery stated at a news conference.

“Then I’ll talk with the staff and with him. He is physically ready to play the entire match.

“We’ll wait for the Federation’s formalisation. We want him to start in the 11. He had a good workout. He’s ready to play.”
