While the attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe may be the best in the world, their defensive performance is a problem for the club, former club midfielder Jean-Michael Larque has said. He said (h/t PSG Talk):
“[Sergio] Ramos’s performance is cause for criticism, but I don’t want to load all the grievances, all the responsibilities of an unbalanced team on a single player. We often talk tactically about an unbalanced team with three attackers who don’t defend. There is a defense that is still very difficult for me because the efforts of the leadership in Paris are constantly focused on the names at the top. And behind us we have a player who gives satisfaction from time to time ”.
“Yes, but today we don’t have the Marquinhos from three or four years ago. […] You won’t win a contest unless you have guys or one that can make a difference, but you won’t win a big contest unless you have a solid defense. But today, from Donnarumma to Ramos passing through Marquinhos from time to time, it breaks my heart to say that we don’t have a defense at PSG that promises great performance in the Champions League. And I hope I’m wrong.”
