Luis Enrique, turnover validated


By: Manu Tournoux

The significant rotation operated by Luis Enrique does not seem to destabilize his players. Even PSG’s opponents welcome this management.

Sunday, at the start of the afternoon, Paris Saint-Germain shared the points (2-2) with Stade de Reims, on the occasion of the 25th day of Ligue 1. In the championship, it is the third consecutive draw for the capital club, which does not prevent it from maintaining a comfortable cushion over its pursuers (ten points ahead of Brest and eleven over Monaco).

For this Sunday meeting, Luis Enrique carried out a large squad review. “ That’s his philosophy, he wants the team to always be prepared for every game, no matter who is playing.”, explained the Portuguese Danilo after the match, who formed an unprecedented central hinge with Beraldo. The Spanish technician had also chosen to start players like Navas, Soler, Lee, or Ramos, more often used to starting matches on the sidelines.

“Parisians are all heading in the same direction”

Even in the opposing camp, this turnover seems to be validated. “You might think that there would be a drop in concentration but Parisians are all going in the same direction, have the same automatisms. The qualities change a little but they are all so talented… Even without Mbappé, even without Dembélé, everyone else has to show themselves”noted Belgian international Thomas Foket in the mixed zone.

This incessant rotation of Luis Enrique could resume on Wednesday evening, on the occasion of the reception of OGC Nice, for the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France. Then the following Sunday, with the trip to Montpellier, just before the international break.
