Paris Saint-Germain central defender Presnel Kimpembe has reacted to the information that Christophe Galtier has downgraded him in the hierarchy of captains of the capital club.

Presnel Kimpembe, PSG Paris Saint-Germain

Christophe Galtier made a strong announcement last Monday, after Paris Saint-Germain’s big victory against fans from Pays de Cassel (7-0) in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France. The Parisian coach has indicated that French striker Kylian Mbappé has been promoted to vice-captain. We decided that Kylian Mbappe was to be the second captain. He deserves to have this armband when Marquinhos is absent. The 2018 world champion will thus wear the armband in the event of the unavailability of Brazilian central defender Marquinhos, to the detriment of his compatriot Presnel Kimpembe, until then second in the hierarchy of captains of the leader of Ligue 1.

“I will always respect the decisions of the club”

A terrible disavowal for the French central defender? Currently sidelined for an Achilles tendon injury, the native of Beaumont-sur-Oise has dotted the “i”. Through a story published on instagramthe 27-year-old wanted to deny his downgrading. “Over the past few hours, I have been able to hear and read a lot about myself. I therefore wish to make things clear in order to avoid continuing to spread false information about me. I was not made aware of this decision, this is completely false… That said, I will always respect the decisions of the club.

Linked until June 2024 with Paris, Presnel Kimpembe has only made eleven appearances in all competitions since the start of the 2022-2023 season, for eight Ligue 1 matches. Slowed down by physical concerns, the tricolor international – package for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar – has not played since November 13, 2022 against AJ Auxerre (5-0, 15th day of Ligue 1). Facing the Burgundy club, the player with 28 selections with the Blues had replaced Sergio Ramos in the last quarter of an hour.
