Infirmary: Galtier justifies the absences of Verratti and Paredes

Both Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes were missing from the scoresheet for PSG’s first friendly in Japan. Christophe Galtier said that the first was simply preserved while the second, injured, should return by the end of the tour.

Yesterday, during PSG / Kawasaki Frontale (2-1), two Parisian midfielders were missing. Indeed, Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes were both absent from the scoresheet. Nevertheless, post-match, Christophe Galtier was reassuring for the Italian, explaining that he was only preserved: “ He resumed with us with pain in his foot. We decided not to make him participate in this match since he only had 5 collective sessions in his legs.. »

Verratti present for PSG / Urawa, not Paredes

The presence of Marco Verratti for PSG / Urawa Reds this Saturday is therefore not compromised, as the French coach has clearly implied: ” He is expected to play in the next game. While organisms are only beginning to heat up, there is no question of rushing. Especially at the dawn of a season which promises to be long and special given the World Cup which will split the 2022/2023 season in two.

On the other hand, Leandro Paredes should not reappear before the end of the tour in Japan: “ Nothing very serious, we think we can recover it by the end of the tour. “He had taken part in the first friendly match of PSG against Quevilly on Friday July 15, and this injury therefore cut him completely in his physical preparation.
