Sun first, returns above all, and therefore something to smile about.
Despite the success snatched against Metz (1-0) on Wednesday night, the week had so far been gloomy enough to not take advantage of the slightest good news.
A setback in the Clasico (0-1), four reds, six firm suspension games for Kurzawa, two for Neymar and Paredes, at least one automatic for Diallo, the adductors of Verratti and Kehrer who whistle, the right knee of Bernat who lets go… this was starting to do a lot for a single coach.
After this series of dirty tricks, the tide finally turned for Thomas Tuchel late Friday afternoon.
On the eve of the departure for Nice, where the Parisians will face the Aiglons on Sunday (1 p.m.) in an Allianz Riviera behind closed doors, the PSG coach saw Thilo Kehrer, Marco Verratti and Kylian Mbappé resume training with the entire team. group.
Placed in the infirmary after the Clasico, the German defender and the Italian midfielder had been exempted from the match against Metz to treat their painful adductors and will be traveling to the Côte d'Azur.
Mbappé nicknamed "Covid" by Neymar
Tested positive for the coronavirus on September 7 with the France team, Kylian Mbappé could also be.
While the day before, the world champion was attacked and nicknamed "Covid" by a hilarious Neymar to see him train away from others, Mbappé partly trained with his comrades on Friday.
The Parisian striker could benefit from the evolution of the medical protocol and make, if the “Covid commission” authorizes it, his return in the jersey of PSG on Sunday, a month after the Champions League final against Bayern.
Juan Bernat, whose right knee anterior cruciate ligament operation is scheduled for next week at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital, will obviously not be on the plane.
Just like the four suspended, Diallo, Kurzawa, Neymar, and Paredes.
The Brazilian and Argentinian have received good news as well.
Like Marquinhos, Neymar was called up for the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup against Bolivia on October 8 in Rio and in Peru on October 13 in Lima.
Paredes was selected with Argentina to face Ecuador on October 8 in Buenos Aires then Bolivia on October 13 in La Paz.
The possible team:
Navas - Florenzi, Marquinhos (cap.), Kimpembe, Bakker - Draxler, Herrera or Gueye, Verratti, Di Maria - Icardi, Mbappé or Sarabia.
