Paris Saint-Germain and controversy go hand in hand. As club football heads into the FIFA international break, the Ligue 1 side provides topics for websites, radio, and television programs.
The first is the Kylian Mbappé opening up about his failed transfer move this summer to Real Madrid. However, coming in second is Leandro Paredes’ wife, Camila Galante, using social media to express her displeasure for the lack of playing time the midfielder is receiving.
On Twitter, Galante retweeted a tweet highlighting passing stats that Paredes is producing for Argentina in their FIFA World Cup. Furthermore, the tweet states that Mauricio Pochettino is a killer for keeping Paredes on the bench.
With the form that Idrissa Gueye and Andre Herrera are seeing to start the season, the two midfielders have leaped over Paredes on the depth chart to start the season. The Argentina international only has made three appearances for the capital club in 2021-22.
Last season the 27-year-old was one of the players to improve with the arrival of Pochettino in January. If Gueye and Herrera can’t carry this form for the entire season, Paredes will need to be ready to jump on any opportunity when he finds himself on the pitch.
