The departure of Thiago Silva will significantly reshuffle the cards in central defense at Paris Saint-Germain. At the start, at least, Marquinhos and Kimpembe in the role of the tauliers. It was up to Diallo, Kehrer and, secondly, Kouassi to reverse the trend.
Defense work is total in Paris Saint Germain. First because the boss, Thiago Silva, will not be kept beyond August 30, then because Thomas Meunier will also leave, like Layvin Kurzawa, which induces the arrival of a new competitor for Juan Bernat ( Théo Hernandez?).
Without “O Monstro” in hinge, and since according to Le Parisien the PSG will not recruit in this sector, it is Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe who will hold the hut. The two friends have been playing together for a very long time even if the Brazilian has very often helped out in midfield since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel on the bench of the champion of France. However, it was this hinge that held the Champions League second-round second leg against Borussia Dortmund. They were also together when PSG dominated Barça in 2017 (4-0).
Common memories therefore already exist and it will be up to Abdou Diallo, who also played on the left, and Thilo Kehrer, who also worked in the right corridor, to show that they can have their say and to compete with the established hierarchy for the start of the season. We must not forget Tanguy Kouassi either. The young Parisian can evolve in hinge and in midfield. He would be close to signing his first professional contract in the capital with the hope of joining in, too, this fierce competition.
