The Brazilian star has been struck down by illness and he's a doubt for his team's crucial match at Stade Velodrome.

Neymar

has not been able to participate in his team’s training as Mauricio Pochettino prepares

PSG

to face

Marseille

in their next Ligue 1 match. The club published an announcement about the player on their official website.

“Neymar is absent from training this morning due to gastroenteritis, he will be evaluated in the coming hours.”

Neymar is not the only PSG player who is expected to miss the Sunday match.

Juan Bernat

is struggling with a long-term injury and he has been sidelined since September.

Timothee Pembele

has tested positive for COVID-19 and he has been forced to self-isolate.

Ander Herrera

and

Keylor Navas

are also out of the training as they are recovering from their short-term injuries. The good news for Pochettino is that

Marco Verratti

and

Marquinhos

have played a full part in training and they can be used in the team’s starting XI against Marseille.
