PSG lost Kimpembe for several weeks, and finds itself in danger given the tactical scheme of Christophe Galtier. But the Parisian coach has found a solution to avoid breakage.
The transfer window is over and Presnel Kimpembe was injured for a month. This is the scenario that Christophe Galtier feared so much when he saw that his club had not finally recruited an additional central defender. However, the PSG coach clearly asked for it when he took office, and Luis Campos did everything to convince his management to pull out all the stops to bring in Milan Skriniar. But nobody came, and with a central three defense, the risk was great to pull the rope in the muscular schedule of the start of the season. It was Kimpembe who, on a desperate tackle in the 89th minute of the match against Brest, saw his thigh give way.
Mukiele does not suit Galtier
Result, it will already be tinkering for Galtier, who believes that Nordi Mukiele, recruited to occupy the position of right side behind Hachraf Hakimi but who can also take the place of right axis, does not necessarily have the qualities to mingle with the central hinge. There remains only Danilo Pereira, imperial this Saturday against Brest despite his position as a central midfielder. But the Portuguese has seen his conversion confirmed in recent weeks, and in the mind of his coach, he is now number 4 in the hierarchy in central defense. A verdict that will allow PSG to complete this game sector, even if there is no longer any joker behind. In any case, this remains the big decision of Paris SG and Christophe Galtier, who trust the Portuguese to be the good surprise of this start to the season, and a player who will soon be essential to the rotation. Better and cheaper than a medical joker.
