Following the injury to Warren Zaïre-Emery on international duty, Paris Saint-Germain won’t be happy, and Didier Deschamps is now going to try and avoid any further setbacks for their other players in his squad, which isn’t good news for Newcastle United.
That’s what L’Equipe on Monday are reporting, revealing that after the 14-0 win over Gibraltar and the serious ankle sprain suffered by the 17-year-old, the France national team manager is expected to change his team almost entirely for the upcoming fixture against Greece.
It’s explained that faced with the upcoming PSG-Monaco and Köln-Bayern fixtures, he will ‘inevitably make concessions’ to those two big clubs in a game without ‘absolutely no stakes’.
Therefore, Deschamps will likely use the Parisians ‘will caution and parsimony’, with those players because Ousmane Dembélé, Lucas Hernández, Randal Kolo Muani and Kylian Mbappé.
Therefore, this means the players should be better rested than if they were to play against Greece, and there’s no doubt that Eddie Howe and the whole of Newcastle will be watching to see who is used.
