Paris Saint-Germain center-backs Presnel Kimpembe and Marquinhos are at odds with one another over a recent incident with fans.
GOAL reported on Saturday, citing sources, that Marquinhos considers Kimpembe’s actions after PSG’s 3-1 loss to Monaco on Feb. 11 at the Stade Louis-II to be a direct attack on his captaincy.
Despite Marquinhos advising teammates not to approach fans, Kimpembe went over to the group with a megaphone and apologized for the performance while asking for support. The fans applauded him.
The reported feud between the two defenders is yet another complex dynamic for PSG, who are on the verge of a UEFA Champions League exit after losing the first leg 1-0 to Bayer Munich on Tuesday night at the Parc des Princes.
Since the return of club football after the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, PSG has struggled with subpar performances that have already resulted in the team being eliminated from the Coupe de France.
PSG has three Ligue 1 games before the second leg against Bayern Munich on March 8 at Allianz Arena to improve their current form or risk more criticism from the media and fans.
