PSG Coach: Why I Haven't Made Neymar Captain

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has finally explained why he refuses to hand Neymar the captain's armband.

Neymar has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons lately, and  recently received a three-game ban for lashing out at a fan.

However, the Brazilian forward silenced some doubters with a goal and an assist in the win over Angers on Saturday.

Tuchel was frustrated with the constant question as to why Neymar never wears armband for the Ligue 1 champions.

"I do not understand why everyone is talking about this," Tuchel told Canal Plus.
 
"We have two captains, with Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, and we are not going to change.
 
"He is a technical leader and attacker. I do not understand why everyone is talking about this thing. We have Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, they are fantastic."
 
"For me, he does not have the profile to be the captain with the armband."
