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."

Neymar was able to captain Brazil to their first ever Olympic gold in 2016 making him the first human being to captain Brazil to an Olympic me that proves that if given an opportunity he can lead and inspire a team to success,in my opinion that's the main characteristic of a captain:to lead and inspire his teammates to perform at at their peak.if all PSG players were performing at Neymar's level then they would have won the UEFA champions league by now.times have changed,it is not the 70's or 80's where you need the "good boy" to lead even if he lacks the quality,class,and individual brilliance to turn the game around all by himself,this is the modern era and on these times it is always the wisest option to make your best soldier forward ahead of the most disciplined. Football is just a 90 minutes game,it is not a game called 'life'-therefore it should be considered on what happens inside the field not outside.
