Bernard Lama has said in the columns of France Football on the situation of Alphonse Areola and Gianluigi Buffon in the PSG. Like many, he believes that the lack of clear hierarchy to the position of goalkeeper serves neither the interest of the two doormen, or those of the club.
This Wednesday at Nantes, Gianluigi Buffon should be the holder for the purposes of paris, which will be only its second tenure since the drama against Manchester United, after the face-to-Strasbourg. If Alphonse Areola plays more since the fiasco mancunien (5 seats on the last 6 matches), the hierarchy is not always clearly defined at the position of goalkeeper. This season, the Frenchman has played in 27 matches with PSG, compared to 21 for Buffon. But before the match against Manchester United, during which the Italian 41-year-old is passed completely to the side, their playing time was almost the same.
A situation that does not serve anyone according to Bernard Lama, who knows the position well : “We left the door open to discussions, it has weakened the guardians, who pay for the lack of institutional strength within the club”, a loose-t-it in the columns of France Football. “There must be a clear situation ! That one installs finally someone on the shelf”, pleads the former guard of paris. If logic would dictate that the PSG will do its world champion French 26-year-old his number one next season, there is nothing to exclude.
In fact, it is not assumed that the Italian is content with a role of number 2 and we still don’t know if it will be there the next season. It is supposed to extend for weeks, and his contract, which expires in June, but has still not done so. Rumors of an arrival of a goalkeeper of high level, also continue to flourish in the press, even when Areola was recently extended until 2023. “If Alphonse wants to be the holder, he must do the necessary, prevents, in any case, Bernard Lama. Be reassuring, be decisive on the two-three-balls to complicated of a game”.
