‘I Don’t Think I Can Play the Next Four Games in 2020’ – Tuchel on Icardi Status for Remainder of December as Concerns Grow Over His Physical Condition

Since suffering a knee injury in October, Mauro Icardi is often lost in the shuffle as a Paris Saint-Germain player. The Argentina international did see some time on the pitch against FC Girondins de Bordeaux a few weeks ago, but it seems to have reaggravated his injury as he has missed the fixtures since then. 

With all this time missed, Moise Kean has taken over the striker role for Les Parisiens, but with no guaranteed future past this season, PSG need Icardi, who they purchased for €50-million plus €7-million in add-ons, to see if he can play alongside Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé.

The 27-year-old has been on hiatus due to the injuries that he has suffered in recent months. As a result, he will likely not play again for the remainder of the year, announced PSG manager Thomas Tuchel during a press conference where Canal Supporters relayed his words about whether or not he was concerned over the physical condition of Icardi. 

“Yes and no. Yes, because I always worry when a player loses many weeks. No, because we can’t think too much about injured players, we have to put pressure on the guys who are there,” Tuchel said. Mauro is working hard, and I hope he will be back on the court soon. See him again before the end of the year? I don’t think I can play the next four games in 2020.”
