Kombouaré takes care of the defense of Messi, Neymar and Mbappé

Zapping But! Football Club FC Nantes: top 10 top scorers in Ligue 1 history

The first steps of the Messi-Neymar-Mbappé trio disappointed the whole world on Wednesday in Bruges (1-1). Unable to play together, the three cracks also gave the impression of hardly worrying about the defensive work, however inherent in any collective.

Asked about this thorny subject yesterday at a press conference, Antoine Kombouaré said all the good he thought of the magic triplet of PSG. “Is it too complicated to align Messi, Neymar and Mbappé together? I do not think so. It is even an asset, said the coach of FC Nantes. What coach wouldn’t love to have such an attacking trio? »At the risk of unbalancing his team?

“Defensively, you have seven players behind them and a goalkeeper,” recalls the Canaries coach. If at eight, we can not defend … The defenders and the midfielders are all international, right? It always makes me laugh when I hear about balance. We have the impression that the three in front are not defending at all. To answer your question, having these three is an asset, it’s even a chance, it’s exceptional to see them together in the same team. If you ask all coaches, I mean all coaches, there may be five in the world who will say ‘I don’t know’. Everyone else will be delighted. “
