A little recollection of the facts. We are at the end of a 2017/2018 season at the end of which Adrien Rabiot is preparing to live a complicated summer. Periodically summoned to the team of France, the native of Saint-Maurice thought it was about the trip to Russia. But on May 17, 2018, it is a real shot of bamboo that the midfielder receives. Absent from the list of 23 elected, Rabiot should be satisfied with a reserve status. A news that did not support. A few days later, the Parisian warns the national coach to withdraw from this list. The beginning of an incessant hype. Criticized by any French opinion, Rabiot knows that his image is a success and decides to speak silent during summer vacations.
Starting from the national team, the player will speak of him in the PSG. In fact, only one year ago Rabiot and Rabiot know that he is being cut off. Faced with the ongoing renegade in France, he forgot the idea of a departure to the outside, but also to cross a plateau in the middle of the head. She even ends up convincing him and Rabiot is, then, part of his leadership of his will to pack, despite the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. A version confirmed by the mother and agent number 25, Véronique Rabiot, in the microphone of RTL December 19 "During the summer transfer window, he had told Mr. Henrique, as we have to say, that he wanted Adrien to be on the list of transfers because Adrien wanted to leave the club and was clearly said."
A summer error expensive for PSG
But in Paris, President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi takes things to hand and refuses to sell his protege. Even a Thiago Motta orphan, PSG did not recruit a means of recovery. See Rabbi while no recipes were recruited is unimaginable by NAK. The latter also thinks that the situation becomes in his favor, as was the case in October 2014. At this time, the Rabiot clan was already reluctant to extend, interested in the offensive AS Roma, before the player will end up signing the famous rental contract until 2019. But this time, Rabiot is resolutely determined to navigate and refuses several extension proposals. A first error of appreciation by the PSG. This does not prevent Tuchel from relying on him until Sunday, October 28, 2018, the date of the classic against OM.
At the end of the shock before the game, Rabiot, the contractual situation is already talking a lot, is left on the bench and does not come into play. I do not reach the non-return point. Defeated, then he tells his leaders that it is useless to expect a positive result. A position that has had the desire to annoy the club's sports director, Antero Henrique. Intractable with the elements that refuse to extend, the Portuguese and the order of orders Thomas Tuchel not to play Rabiot under the red and blue t-shirt. A decision formalized by AH on December 17, 2018, which the German accepts without stopping, even if he does not hesitate to let him know that it has nothing to do with the player's treatment. "This is a situation between the club and Adrien, I do not prohibit entering the dressing room"he said at a press conference. In response, Veronique Rabiot officially announced two days after his son left PSG free of any contract next June.
Tuchel wants to win his fight against Henrique
The relations between Paris and the player are constantly stretched and seriously degraded when Rabiot sends for booking to train. Once again the election of the PSG is speaking, the UNFP demanding the fulfillment of the conditions of work of the midfielder. The LFP will end up recalling the Ile-de-France club in the order. Deprived of his player, Tuchel has played for several weeks already to compose his midfield. For example, Marquinhos, Julain Draxler and Daniel Alves are invited to play convenience stores. A Tuchel puzzle, especially because this lack of depth increases the risk of injuries. The latter respects the choice of their leaders in front of Rabit, but, therefore, logically demands reinforcements against the scarcity of environments. A long and annoying drag situation for the BVB. Tuchel does not hesitate to implicitly criticize Antero Henrique's inability to console him with recruiting a worthy recuperator of the name, able to help the PSG in his campaign to the Champions League. What to break the divorce between the two men. Due to this winter, if half Leandro Paredes has joined the ranks of Paris, Argentina is not pure. Henrique tried to fill this gap with Idrissa Gueye or Thiago Mendes. In vain The first one was too expensive and the second one was not validated by … Tuchel.
At the same time, the PSG, who does not dare imagine that Rabício could not go to Barça after seeing the Blaugrana flew to Frenkie de Jong, tried to get rid of his environment in January. Bayern de Munich and Tottenham were also willing to pay to recover it this winter. But Rabbi has repulsed them. And despite the tensions with Barça, the French still look anxious to go to Catalonia. This time, surely: Paris will see Rabiot leave without retrieving any denier. A new failure for Antero Henrique that adds to the poor record of Portuguese during this winter market. And as if that were not enough, Tuchel was the final blow calling for the reintegration of Rabiot in the first team tonight. A situation for the least particulars. Completed by most Parisian fans since the announcement of their choice was not over, and the heart of an internal fight between their coach and the Rabiot sports director, will have the strength of # 39; Ignore this context and Are they effective if Tuchel puts her in the meadow again? Faced with this complicated context, is Tuchel's right to revive his environment? On paper, Rabbi knows that he has the support of his teammates and his coach does not have many solutions. In a poll that we posted, it was also a good part of having accepted the choice of Tuchel. Everything for that would be tempted to say.
Should the PSG listen to Thomas Tuchel and restart Adrien Rabiot?
