Thunderbolt! The PSG captain will be…


Paris Saint-Germain has clarified the hierarchy of captains, in a soap opera that has ignited in recent hours…

In the context of a fairly lively start to the year, Paris Saint-Germain would have done well without this little file. It concerns the captaincy of the first team. The start of the week had been perfect with the qualification acquired against amateurs from the Pays de Cassel, in the Coupe de France, on Tuesday (7-0). First player in the history of Paris Saint-Germain to score a quintuple in official competition, Kylian Mbappé also wore the captain’s armband for the first time in his career at the start of a match. Should we see a sign?

PSG clarifies the hierarchy: the top 5 captains are established

In the absence of Marquinhos, whose performances have been singled out for almost a year and the delicate evening at the Bernabeu against Real Madrid (1-3), it did not take more to see some observers imagine Kylian Mbappé downgrading the Brazilian in the hierarchy. Constant in performance, more and more altruistic, the prodigy of Bondy ticks many boxes. The hypothesis of seeing him definitively recover the armband from next season has gained weight. But it is also likely to create internal turmoil.

Tuesday evening, it was Presnel Kimpembe who dropped a small bomb by expressing his incomprehension. “In 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. »

A fairly strong position on the part of the Parisian titi, who had already recovered the armband in the absence of Marquinhos this season. This statement echoes that of his coach, Christophe Galtier. We decided at the start of the season that Kylian Mbappé should be the second captain. He deserves to have this armband when Marquinhos is absent. Does Kimpembe feel downgraded? What about Marquinhos? What about the other leaders of the group (Marco Verratti, Sergio Ramos…)? As the controversy began to swell, Paris Saint-Germain tried to signal the end of recess by making a small update.

According to information from Le Parisien and France Bleu, the hierarchy of captains is clear: Marquinhos remains number 1. And if the Brazilian international was missing, 4 players would be likely to recover the armband: Kylian Mbappé, Presnel Kimpembe, Marco Verratti and Sergio Ramos. The choice of the punctual captain would then be made in the dialogue, according to the context of the day. End of the story. For this season…
