When Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe shone in PSG's triumph over Marseille, Neymar was informed he couldn't play beside them.

When Neymar Jr. returns from injury, according to French writer Daniel Riolo,

he shouldn't play for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.

Sunday's 3-0 Ligue 1 victory for Les Parisiens away at Olympique Marseille featured strong performances from Messi and Mbappe (February 26).

The pair collaborated on all three of the goals, with the Frenchman scoring a brace and the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner scoring one.

Going into the six-point match against championship rivals Marseille, there were doubts about PSG's performance. 

Yet, they ultimately triumphed, with Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe stepping up in Neymar's absence.

Riolo has said in the past that the Parisians ought to cease using all three forwards at once.

He considers the group's performance against Igor Tudor's squad to be another evidence that it is challenging to bring out the best in the three when they begin the game together.
