Marquinhos during PSG-Leipzig, November 24, 2020. -


Thomas Tuchel continues to manage his troops.

Four days after Leipzig, and four before Manchester United, the PSG coach will blow Marquinhos against Bordeaux on Saturday.

Slightly affected in the adductors, the Brazilian had played under infiltration Tuesday in the Champions League.

His coach will need him next week for a meeting that is once again very important for the club's European future.

Marco Verratti, who entered late in the match on Tuesday, should play his first minutes in Ligue 1 since October 5.

"He can play maybe a half," said Thomas Tuchel at a press conference, who also hopes to be able to give Mauro Icardi some playing time.

“There is the possibility of leaving him on the bench and giving him a few minutes, because he has been working for several weeks.

It's hard for a player like Mauro, who lives to score, it's been too long for him, ”said the German.

"I had the feeling that the journalists wanted to convince me of their opinions"

A decision on the Argentinian striker will be made just before the game, just like Idrissa Gueye.

The Parisian infirmary is therefore emptying slowly but surely.

There are still Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer and Juan Bernat there, anyway.

Abdou Diallo is suspended for the match against the Girondins.

Thomas Tuchel took advantage of this conf to reconsider his attitude and his words after the match against Leipzig.

He was more than annoyed by the journalists' questions.

“I understand the criticisms but we have different positions.

I am in the field, I am a little part of the group, so it is normal that I do not have the same vision, he explained.

Personally, I had the feeling that journalists wanted to convince me of their opinions.

I don't have the same position because I'm on the pitch.

But it's nothing serious.
