For his fourth preparation match against Genoa (Italy, Serie A) this Saturday in Orleans (Loiret), Mauricio Pochettino will again call on the young Parisian guard.
As against Augsburg last Tuesday (2-1 victory), the “Titis” of the PSG will be in great demand to support the professionals in activity since the resumption: Navas, Kehrer, Diallo, Gueye, Draxler or Icardi.
A return of Ander Herrera, present this Friday during collective training, is not to be excluded.
The Spanish midfielder was absent in the first three friendly outings with a calf problem.
It will perhaps be more complicated for Layvin Kurzawa, victim of a blow to the calf too, even if nothing serious is to be deplored.
For the rest, the staff will still not be able to count on Sergio Ramos.
The former Real Madrid defender will not make the trip and will continue to perfect his physical form at the Loges camp where he is finishing his second week of training.
As we have already specified, Paris Saint-Germain do not want to take any risks with their 35-year-old defender who experienced an injury-plagued last season.
This Friday, Ramos got to know Kylian Mbappé and Georginio Wijnaldum.

The two French and Dutch internationals experienced their first day of training proper after a resumption Thursday devoted to physical tests.
Ramos should also cross Presnel Kimpembe, since the Parisian central defender is expected this Saturday on the side of Saint-Germain en Laye.
The Portuguese Danilo Pereira returned to him this Friday.
Suffice to say that it will make a lot of people.
Will they meet Achraf Hakimi? Not sure. The Moroccan international, positive for Covid-19 last week and then tested negative a few days later, had resumed training individually since Tuesday. But this Friday, he was able to join the rest of the group. As he has not experienced any symptoms and feels in full possession of his means, Pochettino is likely to put him in the squad, and the possibility of Hakimi playing part of the game against Genoa exists. Eight days before the Champions Trophy against Lille, this is significant news for the Parisian staff in need of a right-back for eight days.
