The thorny question of the participation in the Olympics of some stars of PSG has been resolved.
In this already busy summer where the PSG sees its players play for a lot the Euro or the Copa America, the Olympic Games do not necessarily come at the right time for these players who intended to follow up under the flags. In Paris, the executives that are Neymar, Marks and Kylian Mbappé have clearly expressed the wish to rally Tokyo from July 21 to August 7. A request heard by the club of the capital, but clearly rejected.
According to ESPN Brazil, the coach of U23 Auriverdes, who has the opportunity to strengthen his team with three elements over the age of 23, will not be able to count on the Neymar and Marquinhos – the PSG having vetoed these summons. As the Olympic tournament is not in line with the FIFA calendar, clubs are not required to release their players for the benefit of national selections.
A few weeks ago, Leonardo’s speech suggested such a Parisian posture. ” We have to manage our players well, protect them and not expose them. Today the calendar is very busy for everyone. Unfortunately, there are too many games in a season and we can see the injuries that can cause. It is therefore difficult to imagine this same sports director granting Kylian Mbappé a tricolor sesame to compete in the Games.
