PARIS (Reuters) - Paris St Germain’s injured midfielder Marco Verratti may start training next week, raising hopes he could play in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Manchester United.
“He could get back to first team training next week, coach Thomas Tuchel told reporters on Saturday on the eve of a Ligue 1 clash at Olympique Lyonnais.
Italy international Verratti twisted his ankle in a 9-0 demolition of En Avant Guingamp a couple of weeks ago.
PSG, who lead Ligue 1 by 10 points with three games in hand, travel to Old Trafford on Feb. 12 without the injured Neymar.
