Kimmich wants to face Neymar

FC Bayern München defender Joshua Kimmich is eager to test himself against the likes of Neymar when Paris Saint-German host his team in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Die Roten are set to lock horns with the Parisians in a group-stage encounter at the Parc des Princes, and Kimmich is hoping to square off against Brazilian superstar Neymar.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he told the club’s official website. “Neymar is one of the best players in the world one-on-one.

“It’s for games like this that you train every day. It’s why you become a footballer, so you can play against the best in the Champions League.”

It is, however, unclear whether or not the former Barcelona forward will be fit for the game after sitting out the goalless draw with Montpellier at the weekend due to an injury.
