Tuchel confirms Cavani injury
PSG boss is not confident that Edinson Cavani will be fit to play after the striker limped out of their game today.
“No, I don’t have good news,” he told Canal Plus. “We have to wait.
“I do not know [if he will be fit]. Yes, it’s worrying, it’s not a good sign.
“If your key players are not there it’s different. We do not have another Edi, we do not have another Neymar.”
It was a professional debut to remember for United loanee Zak Dearnley today, who scored the second in Oldham’s 3-0 win at Crawley.
The expected announcement confirming Paul Scholes as the new Oldham manager won’t take place today, by the way.
