This is very bad news for Christophe Galtier, the PSG coach who will have to lay off one of the top names for weeks on end. Presnel Kimpembé suffers from a hamstring injury.
For Presnel Kimpembe, the timing is downright bad. This injury occurs at a particularly important moment in the career of the central defender for the Reds and Blues. Because besides missing the match against Lyon scheduled for Sunday at Groupama Stadium, “Tite” will also miss the next gathering of the Blues.
In a press release published on Tuesday, September 13th, the Capital Club announced that he is a 27-year-old player ‘Injured his left hamstring’. This serious injury will force the latter to at least move away from the field “less than six weeks”. A new update will be made in 8 days, hopefully there will be no aggravation by then.
🚨🚨 About six weeks of absence for Presnel Kimpembe, PSG announced! A new point will appear within 8 days. 🇬🇧

Bad news also for Didier Deschamps
If Briscoe’s World Cup participation had not, of course, been called into question due to this physical imbalance, Didier Deschamps would undoubtedly have preferred to have been able to count on him to face Austria and Denmark in the framework of the League of Nations next week. For the national coach, it is already time to make the final adjustments to his squad ahead of the rapidly approaching 2022 World Cup.
Before those very serious deadlines come in, Christoph Galtier will have to compose without this staple of his workforce. Against Maccabi Haifa, the former Lusk coach should pick Marquinhos and Sergio Ramos, the duo that Danilo will complement in a three-man defense. The author of a very good performance since the start of the season, the Portugal international can surely win back the favour of the Parisian public. Presnel Kimpembe will try to get back as soon as possible.
