He is the big news from the squad list as Neymar misses out after needing a break post-international break.
Jesé could return to action for PSG. The opponent and all the circumstances around the Nimes game suggest that it could be possible. PSG have a lot of players out and that could give Jesé his chance.
He didn’t leave in the summer transfer market. He was out on loan for a season and nobody was willing to match the Frenchman’s salary this time around. So, playing or not, Jesé will stay in Paris.
Tuchel could have ostracised him, but recent injuries have meant that he has been recalled to the squad four times, this time to face Nimes. He has only played once, in the draw with Lens in the second gameweek.
He played 15 minutes, and watched wins against Metz and Angers from the bench. He hasn’t started once, but recent developments mean that Tuchel has been forced to call on him again.
PSG have several problems. To begin with, Neymar isn’t injured but Tuchel wants to rest him after his long flight from South America, where he played a lot.
He isn’t alone. his compatriot Marquinhos was injured over the international break ruling him out along with Icardi and Veratti. all of this means that Jesé might get his big chance.
