At this rate, Thomas Tuchel will not have enough players in his workforce to go until the Christmas holidays. Since he recovered his troops, at the end of the international break, the hard knocks are linked for the German coach.
For ten days, not a match has ended without a Parisian player joining the ranks of the infirmary. For the resumption of Ligue 1, on October 16 in Nîmes (0-4), it was first Leandro Paredes who injured a thigh. Four days later during the setback to Manchester United (1-2), it was Gana Gueye’s turn to have to leave his partners at the break due to a tear in the hamstrings. Saturday night against Dijon, a new tile accompanied the Parisian success.
“We lost Draxler, it’s expensive”
Returning from the German selection and handicapped by pain in the hamstrings, Julian Draxler was invited to ignore the trip to Nîmes. On the bench against Manchester United, the German was probably still too fragile to return to Dijon on Saturday. He came out at the hour of play with his eyes down and holding his left thigh.
Another bad news for Thomas Tuchel who did not need to wait for the control images of his midfielder to know that he would be forfeited from the trip to Istanbul on Wednesday to challenge Başakşehir, champion of Turkey. “We lost Draxler today, it’s expensive, regretted the Parisian coach at a press conference. He will be missing Marco Verratti, Leo Paredes and Julian in Istanbul. ”Besides Juan Bernat, package for several months after his knee operation, he forgot to quote Idrissa Gueye, unavailable for at least three weeks. It remains to be seen if Mauro Icardi, affected to the internal lateral ligament of the right knee during the international break, will be fit.
