PSG sporting director Leonardo angry at late arrival of South American players in Qatar
PSG sporting director Leonardo has reacted angrily at the late arrival of Diego Lugano, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Javier Pastore to the club’s winter training camp in Doha.
The former AC Milan star, who presented Brazilian star Lucas Moura as a PSG player to the press on Wednesday, admitted he had yet to talk to the player’s over their behaviour but also revealed it would be hard to punish them.
“Lugano, Lavezzi and Pastore arrived a day later and I'm not happy,” he told L’Equipe.
“This is not good and was not planned. Nenê had the right to come on the 30th December, but they did not. I have not yet met them.
“Let's see what we'll do. We are in France and it’s not easy to punish them, unfortunately.”
Leonardo also spoke about the French club’s plans for the January transfer window.
“The window is always unpredictable, you never know what can happen. We need to see if players will leave, then we'll consider hiring.
“If we continue exactly as we are, then we will not improve. If some players leave, and that possibility exists, we will see.
“The coach has his team, his ideas and his idea of balance. There are players like Nenê, Guillaume Hoarau, Lugano, Siaka Tiene and Mohamed Sissoko that can leave. We will see what will happen in the coming days.”
