With his new status as captain of the France team, Presnel Kimpembe put a lot of pressure on the new leaders of Paris Saint-Germain… before backtracking.
Monday, during the clash between France and Croatia at the Stade de France, Presnel Kimpembe will wear the captain’s armband for the second time in a week with the jersey of the Blues. A nice reward for the one who remains one of the sure values of Didier Deschamps since the 2018 World Cup. On this occasion, the central defender of PSG will want to prove that he is one of the best in Europe in his position. What some PSG followers have doubted in recent months. A week ago, Kimpembe had also called for a discussion with the new leaders of Paris about his future: “I’m waiting to meet the new sports management, to find out about the new project, that interests me. We’re going to have to talk pretty quickly.”. A media release that surprised the club, and it was therefore to put out the fire a little that the 26-year-old player had to clarify his remarks.
“It is legitimate to ask the club what role they are going to assign me”

“I said that I was coming to 27, that my next contract would be decisive, that I wanted to know the new project. I didn’t say anything bad. I arrived at 9 or 10 years old at PSG. It is legitimate to ask the club what role they will assign me. For now, I’m focused on the Blues to end the season well. How can we forget this very long season? There is nothing to forget. Everything is good to take. This is how we move forward. You have to look forward, keep a positive side”, launched, in a press conference, Kimpembe, who will in any case have an exchange with Luis Campos, the new sports director of PSG, when he returns to training next July. During this discussion, Kimpembe will surely ask for a major role in the Parisian locker room, with why not a contract extension, as for Marquinhos? Answer in a few weeks…
