Mercato: “There are two important players missing” at PSG, Rothen and Petit take stock of the Parisian transfer window – RMC Sport

After the summer transfer window closed, PSG was rather active in terms of departures and arrivals. However, Emmanuel Petit and Jérôme Rothen believe that there are shortcomings, especially in central defense. With thirteen arrivals and nineteen departures, PSG was particularly active during this summer transfer window, enlisting young players in particular. (Ekitike, Soler, Mukiele) and by getting rid of certain undesirables, either permanently (Gueye, Areola, Kehrer) or in the form of a loan (Draxler, Herrera, Wijnaldum, Kurzawa). A transfer window which notably saw the rise of tensions between Luis Campos and Antero Henrique, the two strong men of the sportsman. the boxes according to Jérôme Rothen. “We observed the club’s requests and the project. On arrival, two important players were missing. They tried a central defender until the end. They came up with a plan B, and even a plan C, they didn’t have failed to do so because they still believed in it for Skriniar who was a year away from the end of his contract I can understand the club that they didn’t put the money on the table explained our consultant on the show Rothen ignites, this Friday. The problem is that you have a fault in central defense if ever there is a problem of a player. If you continue to play three behind, even if Danilo can render services, he is not a central defender. Mukiele can do it but he is not a central defender. He is there to have competition with Hakimi on the role of piston.”>> The transfer window directA lack of attackFor Jérôme Rothen, PSG can also be fair in attack, especially in terms of the profiles of the offensive line available to Christophe Galti st. “Messi, Neymar, Mbappé, Ekitike, they are not pure attackers like Icardi should have been. That’s why they tried Scamacca at the start of the transfer window. What’s good is that they have slimmed down.” For his part, Manu Petit is “not worried” about PSG’s season, adding that the capital club has “rather succeeded in its transfer window, even if there have been pitfalls.” The 1998 world champion recalls, however, that the champions of France will be expected during the second part of the season. “They got rid of a lot of players who were a drag. They took on very interesting players who go against the bling-bling that we have seen in recent years. But there is a lack of options in terms of the central defense in case of injury and poor form. The most important will be the second half of the season, so they have time to strengthen.”AS, with Rothen on fire
