In the galactic PSG: a dressing room divided by privileges, parties and rivalries

Paris Saint Germain strengthened in such a way that the eyes of the world of football fell on him with much more force. The arrival of Lionel Messi provoked a reaction that not only increased his followers, but also marked the beginning of a golden era.

So far in Ligue 1 everything is going well. They are first of the table, although in many of the games they have suffered to win or reverse adverse scores.

In addition, in the Champions League they finished second in the group and in the next phase they will face neither more nor less than the powerful Real Madrid, with whom they have had managerial frictions due to the issue of the scorer Kylian Mbappé.

The galactic PSG, compared to that Real Madrid of more than a decade ago, managed to reunite Neymar, Mbappé, Ángel Di María, Messi and Sergio Ramos. And as if that were not enough, he took the Italian goalkeeper, champion of the European Championship, Gianluigi Donarumma.

However, not everything is honey on flakes at PSG. The changing room that he directs Mauricio Pochettino It’s a time bomb in the middle of the season.

The French sports newspaper The team made a publication on December 21 in which he talks about internal tensions between various players, in addition to conflicts over the privileges of one and the other and the unjustified absences and parties without permission.

All this, according to the French newspaper, can throw away what they have achieved so far in the domestic league and in the European competition.

The team The first friction is the case of the Costa Rican Keylor Navas and the Italian Donarumma. The coach Pochettino has not doubted the performance of the Central American goal, but he did not see with bad eyes that the European champion goalkeeper would arrive.

This is the cover of the newspaper L’Equipe where they announce the note about the crisis in the PSG dressing room.

According to the newspaper, Navas accepted the challenge and both signed a pact to compete for ownership, while the coaching staff bet on the rotation every two or three games.

The first to claim such a decision was the Italian goalkeeper’s agent, Mino Raiola. During an interview with the RAI he assured: “I don’t know if this situation has become a problem, but everyone knows how this story is going to end. Everything will be decided in favor of Gianluigi ”.

The French media recounts as one of the first confrontational episodes the one that occurred after a match against Nice in which the goal of that team, Bulka, on loan from PSG, He approached the Parisian dressing room to greet Navas, to whom he pointed out that they both used the same brand of gloves.

A witness confided that the Tico doorman looked at Donarumma and replied: “The best goalkeepers in the world carry this brand”. The Italian, who bears another brand, was taken for granted.

The French newspaper also says that there are two groups in the dressing room. That of the French and the South Americans and close with Draxler and Wijnaldum. The information even puts Mbappé in this last segment, who is already far from PSG for the next season.

Neymar reappears in a publication of this newspaper. The South American player was not in a mandatory signing act with some of the sponsors, a situation that angered the management of PSG to the point that there was talk of a strong sanction against the player.

A punishment that finally came to nothing for fear of the directive of possible leaks. Officially, the reason for his delay is that Neymar did not know whether or not he should do a covid-19 test in the morning and was angry about it.

The other episode that they tell, without specifying names, is the case of two South American players (who they assume is Leo Messi and Leandro Paredes) who did not train on November 30 because they arrived tired after spending a night out.

This episode coincides with the party he threw the flea after having received the Ballon d’Or.
