In the hard league, PSG is not immune to a season without a title, according to Jérôme Rothen.
The PSG fell from a height on Sunday. Only a few days after his Barcelona festival, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have indeed bitten the dust at the Parc des Princes facing theAS Monaco (0-2). What confirms the difficulties of the reigning French champions, third in Ligue 1 four points from the Losc, and make Jérôme Rothen fear the worst.
“I’m sure they wanted to hit hard against Monaco to confirm their great victory against Barcelona. And with one or two absences, everything suddenly tumbles. This team is wobbly, we already knew that. We can be a little worried about the title, or even the podium. There are teams that can believe in it and be much better than PSG from a collective point of view, ”said the consultant for RMC.
“There are seasons when it’s like that, with several injuries. Either you have bad luck or a bad lifestyle like Neymar, or even Marco Verratti. He has played a lot lately but we must recognize that physically, when he goes on, he is caught up by what he did before. It can be a problem. Without Neymar and Verratti, there aren’t many people who have creativity, he continued. Even against weaker teams, they are in trouble. They win these matches but the others create big chances. We do not feel a group that will tear everything away. I tell myself that this year, it may be a blank year for PSG. “
