The beginning of the year is quite difficult to manage for Marco Verratti, who only played a very small match with Paris Saint-Germain. Absent from the World Cup, the Italian international felt pain in his thigh on January 10 and since then he has not played. A situation that did not fail to react, even if the PSG announced a return after the meeting against Reims scheduled for January 29.
The pressure is mounting, just weeks away from the shock of the knockout stages of the Champions League. the PSG will meet the Bayern Munich February 14 then March 8 and for the moment, optimism is not there. The executives of the team are not at best like Neymar, who still has not digested the failure of the Brazil at the World Cup. He is not the only one since Marco Verratti is also struggling at the start of the year, even though he did not compete in the World Cup with theItaly.

“While the others were playing, he didn’t do the right thing at all”
As usual Daniel Riolo is one of the first detractors of the midfielder of the PSG and in theAfter Foot of this Tuesday, he once again tackled it. “ Verratti, who by the way, you will have noticed, came back after the holidays not in good shape at all. Because during the World Cup, while the others were playing, he didn’t do the right thing at all. Namely, to keep in shape. That’s why he’s hurt “explained the journalist and columnist of RMC Sports.
“We hope he will be in good shape on February 14… it’s not won”
“ The booze, a little wine at the table, the daily pack of cigarettes… He came back in bad shape. And as luck would have it, he got hurt. We hope he will be in good shape on February 14… it is not won ” has followed Riolo. “ The great professional, who was to return, since he did not play the World Cup, he must have been very, very strong. He made some really mediocre back-to-school matches, and in the process he got injured. And he disappeared. We hope that in the second half of the season and from February 14, he will return to the top level. Him, the idol of young people and the best player of this club it seems “.
“Some should lead by example and maybe could be captains”
An observation which notably concerned the question of the captaincy of the PSG, with Marquinhos which is contested and Kylian Mbappe who took the place of Presnel Kimpembe. And for Riolo, Verratti would have or be a very good candidate… with a different mentality. ” It’s just to make a small parenthesis on the professionalism of some, who are the oldest at the club, who should set an example and who could perhaps be captains “he analyzed, still in theAfter Foot of this Tuesday evening. “ He is in midfield, if he had the personality, if he was a leader, if he was someone charismatic who gave a shit about his career and the club. The problem in this club is that there are too many who don’t give a shit about what it takes to be in the club “.
