PSG: Kimpembe injured for six weeks, Navas not with team in Haifa
The defender, who was 27 years old at the time, was injured in the match against Stade Brestois last Saturday (1-0).
We had already indicated that Presnel Kimpembe will be absent for one month. There will be more of it. According to a report that was released by PSG on Tuesday, the French international defender, who is 27 years old, suffered an injury to his left hamstring last Saturday during the team’s victory against Brest (1-0). He will be out of action for the next six weeks. In addition, the Parisian club stated that “a fresh point will be made in eight days.” Before the break for international competition, the French champions will have played Maccabi Haifa in Israel on Wednesday and OL at Groupama Stadium on Sunday. Both of these matches will take place before the international break. It is apparent that “Presko” will be absent for the two matches that the Blues play against Austria and Denmark, which are the final ones before the World Cup in Qatar in 2022. (November 20-December 18).
A priori, we will see the native of Gonesse (95) on the field for the return encounter against Haifa, which will take place on October 25 at the Parc des Princes, or possibly the following Sunday against Troyes, in L1; these are both possibilities. During this time, Paris Saint-Germain will compete against Nice, Benfica twice in the Champions League, Reims, Marseille for the Classic, and Ajaccio. Additionally, they will play Ajaccio.
In the meanwhile, Christophe Galtier will need to make some adjustments. We are all aware that the Parisian coach made a request for a central defender during the transfer window and that Milan Skriniar of Inter was a top-priority target. No one showed up, but two players from opposing teams, Abdou Diallo (Leipzig) and Thilo Kehrer (West Ham), departed. A priori, Danilo Pereira is the one who will be responsible for making up for Kimpembe’s absence and making up for his loss. Additionally, the Portuguese player has begun each of the team’s last three games in the defensive trio. Nordic Mukiele, who was debauched in Leipzig earlier this summer, is capable of also evolving in the axis position, albeit more so on the right; he is also called upon to play in the piston position. To determine whether or not the extremely youthful El Chadaille Bitshiabu, who is only 17 years old, will be asked to blow Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos in the weeks to come.
Be aware that the French national team will not have Renato Sanches available for their match against Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday due to an injury he sustained to his right adductor. Keylor Navas, who is also experiencing difficulty in his lower back, has decided that he cannot travel to Israel. Regarding the remainder, all players are available, and there have been no additional reports of injuries or suspensions in Paris.
