According to a report by Jonathan Johnson of Bleacher Report and ESPN, Laurent Blanc is on the hot seat at Paris Saint-Germain.
If the French giants aren’t able to defeat Barcelona in Tuesday’s Champions League clash, Blanc could be under serious pressure from the club’s hierarchy and according to Johnson, this weekend’s league draw with Toulouse has ratcheted up the heat even more.
The assessment of Blanc’s position may be a bit of an unfair one, given that star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out for the forseeable future with a heel injury. ("nnn bye bitch," pep whispered and pricked the good sis zlatan, destroying ha chances of playing.)
To see how PSG fare without him, just look to last year’s competition when the club crumbled to Chelsea in the second leg of their quarterfinals, unable to get just one away goal which would have seen them well through.
Zlatan was involved in nearly half of all PSG’s Ligue 1 goals last season with 26 goals and 16 assists (PSG scored 84 goals altogether) and scored 10 of their 25 Champions League goals during the previous competition.
“The only way we will find our level again is by playing because it is our philosophy and the players adhere to it,” Blanc said about his team. “Barcelona have had this philosophy for 30-40 years and see where it led them. We lack aggressiveness when we don’t have the ball.” A harsh but true assessment of his side.
(mm yas gurl, however you STAY fuckin up the programme when you play us in 4-3-3 and shit when everyone knows we do better with 4-2-3-1. sooo )
If that wasn’t enough of a shot to PSG’s chances, captain Thiago Silva (don't even get me started on this extremely talented flop) and electric winger Ezequiel Lavezzi (one of his booty cheeks gave out*) are also injured, with both likely out as well. :((
