Khéphren Thuram, the overwhelming observation


By: Manu Tournoux

Author of another insipid performance against PSG, Wednesday evening in the Coupe de France, Khéphren Thuram no longer escapes criticism.

Another relatively dull match for Khéphren Thuram. During the elimination of OGC Nice against PSG (3-1), Wednesday evening at the Parc des Princes, in the quarter-finals of the Coupe de France, the Gym midfielder made a dull copy, which earned it a rating of 4/10 in the newspaper The Team. Not a flop, but close. A bad habit for the Riviera player since the start of the season.

Three months before Euro 2024, the one selected by Didier Deschamps in March 2023, honoring his first – and so far only – cap against the Netherlands, seems very far from being able to apply again for the Blues. “He hasn’t been good for a very long time, Daniel Riolo slices on RMC. There was too much excitement around him and I think his head swelled a lot too. »

“No reference to the very high level”

Also present in After Football to debrief the meeting, Emmanuel Petit shares this observation on Khéphren Thuram, guilty in particular of a lost ball which led to the first Parisian goal, signed Kylian Mbappé (14e). “I wasn’t in the hype last year. He had some good matches but against whom?he asks himself. We’re talking about the French team and big European clubs, but stop! »

For the 1998 world champion, Marcus’ little brother (22 years old) did not “no reference to the very high level, and in the regularity of its performances as well”. However, has his rating fallen since last summer, when his name was circulating among certain big names from the Old Continent, including Paris Saint-Germain? According to the site Transfermarktits market value is still estimated at 40 million euros.
