Julian Draxler appeared in a video published on Paris Saint-Germain’s social media platforms discussing various topics: his friendship with Presnel Kimpembe. Since arriving in the French capital in 2017, Draxler states that the France international seemed like an old friend with how he quickly connected with him.
“My friend Kim is always happy when I score, but at the same time, he is happy for everyone. I always tried to show that I could help the team, and of course, when you score or make an assist, it’s always important to show that you have quality,” Draxler said.
“And at that moment, you see that Kim is also very happy for me. I have already explained several times that when I joined PSG, I had the impression that I already knew Presnel even though we had never met. We are the same in mentality, in what we think. I think he’s very funny and that’s why I like to stay with him, for fun. […] For me, he’s one of the best defenders in the world.”
Kimpembe appears to be the player in the locker room that keeps everyone loose even when the situations are tense, which is why it seems he can hang out with anyone on the squad.
