Press review : Crack in the locker room ; suspensions ; fairplay financial ; extension of Tuchel…
Seen and read about the PSG on Tuesday 30 April 2019 in the French press.
The Parisian of the day title on the fact that the “masks fall” in the locker room in paris. The regional newspaper evokes the words of Neymar this Saturday after the defeat to Stade Rennes , who have made “in light of a changing room will crack”. According to their information, the Brazilian was to be “priority Alphonse Areola and Presnel Kimpembe, it tasted very little insurance since their title of champion of the world”. The‘Auriverde “believes that his two team-mates have a lot less reason to assign the laurels of the supreme title that Kylian Mbappé“. If on the bottom, the coach German “adhere totally to the theory of its star“, complaining “regularly of the attitude of the younger members of the group“, on the form this last call “over moderation“. These remarks are also supported by Daniel Alves or even Kylian Mbappé. In contrast the French and the young people have the impression that the club “does not mean that Brazilians“ and that they “benefit from a preferential treatment“. Atmosphere, atmosphere…
The daily then addresses the potential suspensions against Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr after the final of the Coupe de France with a vision very different for the two players. In effect, the French international, could “between three and four game suspension according to the scales“. The Brazilian could have a “punishment light” or no, the images having shown that it was clearly caused by a “bear” “in a lot of buzz on social networks”. The leaders of the parisians would even be angry as a result of this episode, and it points to “a flaw in the organization of the final, in the security aspect, with a public that is too close“.
Finally, the fair play financial is making a big comeback in the columns of the journal. The PSG should sell players for a total amount of € 60 million. Management sports paris has already realized part of the way with the final transfer of Giovani Lo Celso to Betis for € 25 million, added to the€ 10 Million that could bring Krychowiak once the option of compulsory purchase has been thrown by the Lokomotiv Moscow. Three players will be assigned : Thomas Miller, Stanley NSoki and Christopher Nkunku. The parisian club hopes to between 20 and 25 M€ for the international belgian end of his contract in June 2020. The price of young “left-hand sidedoes not exceed ten million euros“. On Nkunku, the leaders of the parisians for him to have offered to extend his contract last winter, but the latter allegedly refused. Policy makers would therefore agree to sell it before next June 30, “provided that a suitable offer of around 20 million euros, is present“.

The daily Team makes its a on the contract extension of Thomas Tuchel until June 2021 and the wage increases that will follow (€7.5 million annual instead of€ 5 Million).
The article returns to the conference before a game, the coach and German players that he would point the finger at in his speech. Leandro Paredes would be perceived “as a player who does not have the level“, Presnel Kimpembe is not in him, “not enough to listen“. This break with the group would have intervened at half-time against FC Nantes at the Beaujoire on April 17 (2-3). The technician germanic would have used a term “particularly flowery” to describe the first period of its players. A speech “is perceived as disproportionate, while the team was weakened by absences, and which has fuelled internal discussion“.
Despite a second part of the season in the semi-shade, Thomas Tuchel guard a coast high in Europe. The log shows that two clubs, including a “very good” at the continental scale, would be positioned to recover via Pini Zahavi. A proposal quickly rejected by the most interested party, a proof of his investment in the project in paris.
