Tuchel says that Neymar should be worrying about his game not the leadership,

Tuchel

thinks that

Neymar

should focus on his game and that is why he shouldn’t be the captain as he already has so much on his mind.

Here is what Tuchel said about their Brazilian star with

Lyon

clash ahead of them.

"I often speak to Neymar on his own and I'm always close to him. We speak a lot," said Tuchel, ahead of Sunday's Ligue 1 clash with Lyon.

"It's important that he is free to say what he thinks. We often talk about tactics and also personal matters. At the moment he has so much going on in his head.

"He takes responsibility on the pitch. He is an artist. He is creative. For that reason, I don't want him to think about organizational matters.

"If there are very important matters to discuss he is one of our key players of course.

"It is not to do with him because I want him to stay focused on the pitch so that he can play with all of his freedom and creativity."

He went on about Lyon midfielder

Houssem Aouar

who is said to be linked with the club.

"We have respect for all clubs and players so we don't talk about other players, but it's clear that Houssem Aouar is a key player for Lyon and the national team,

"It is obvious he could play in any team in the world. He's a fantastic player and has been key for Lyon so we need to prepare well to face him."
