Leonardo’s sports management in Paris is not to everyone’s taste. The club’s pundits are losing patience in Qatar.
A few weeks ago in the pages of L’Equipe, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi said all the good he thinks of Leonardo. “ Leo has done a fantastic job for two years, despite a context that made things very difficult during the last mercatos. He brought something we were missing. Discipline, for example. He has a privileged position on a daily basis with the staff and the workforce, things that no one sees, neither you, nor me, nor the supporters … “Since then, the Brazilian sports director has not been idle. Georginio Wijnaldum has arrived, waiting for Achraf Hakimi, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos. A fine track record which is not to everyone’s taste, however.
The Italian doorman, for example, has never been validated by Mauricio Pochettino, whose relations with Leonardo are known to be rather cold. ” The arrival of Gianluigi Donnarumma is not a personal request but a file of the sporting director Leonardo », Specifies Le Parisien, who adds that the Argentine coach deplores all the more the interference of Auriverde that this reinforcement forces him to potentially review the hierarchy well in place of the goalkeepers, while Keylor Navas is certainly not at question.
Tension in Doha
Still according to Le Parisien, it appears that the recruitment of veteran Spanish Sergio Ramos is not necessarily well lived in the locker room of PSG. ” In their discussion group, some members of the Parisian locker room are moved by Leonardo’s choices, such as the possibility Sergio Ramos. And the tensions with Leonardo echo as far as Qatar. Several leaders in Doha clash over Brazilian’s record », We can read in the daily aroused. Another point crystallizing many concerns on the side of Doha: the management of the Mbappé case.
« Discussions must take place between PSG and Camp Mbappé. This should last for several months because such a case cannot be resolved in a snap. Especially since Leonardo and the entourage of the attacker, lawyer Me Delphine Verheyden and parents Fayza and Wilfrid, today have a complicated dialogue, if not nonexistent. The arrival of a new sports director could also change everything », Writes the journalist of the Parisian Sébastien Nieto while the names of Fabio Paratici (Tottenham) and Luis Campos could resonate behind the scenes of the Camp des Loges recently. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi seems to have taken control of the case of the young striker of the France team. Leonardo’s future in Paris may well depend on the outcome of the upcoming negotiations.
