Kimpembe sings the praises of Nkunku: "He's huge, he's one of the great now"


The indefatigable French international defender answered questions from the press on Monday, before challenging Leipzig in the Champions League, and spoke of his former teammate at Paris-SG.

The sequence of matches

 : “

Obviously, there is fatigue, like any player, but I am available to the team and the staff.

If I am in the field, it is because I am suitable.

This is only positive for me.

I am here to help the team.

I am a competitor, a soldier.

If I am called upon, I will respond present.

Sometimes difficult anyway?

Obviously, it's not easy, we play every three days… We try to adapt.

I go on match, recovery, match… It's not easy to find the balance but we play a sport that we love, we are not going to complain.

I'm happy to be on the pitch.

Others would like to be there in my place.

I'm not going to complain and take what I'm given.
