Spanish media assure that the experienced Spanish defender would have arrived in Paris with some demands that the institution's staff did not like.
The PSG became the essential player in the transfer market. However, he had already achieved this condition even before signing Lionel Messi. A month before his signing, he also signed a contract with the second captain of the Spanish football giant: Sergio Ramos.
Despite not having the same effect, the arrival of the defender made a fuss, and only the arrival of Lionel Messi could cast a shadow over it. Now, with the waters, a little calmer and 40 days after his hiring, sources close to the club would have assured Cadena Ser that the Spanish central came with some demands that generated some discomfort in the club's employees.
This was reported by the journalist Toño García of the program El Larguero of the Spanish medium Cadena Ser . At the same time, the Real Madrid idol would also have had some details with the technical staff who work for the players, which they have not liked within the institution. "They are not happy at Paris Saint Germain how he arrived, with his injury, that has occurred, with his attitude. Sources from the Parisian team tell us that either he puts the batteries and returns to 100%, or he is not going to be the undisputed headline as he may think, or we could all think, "said the journalist.
"They also tell me, and I open quotation marks, he has arrived very" grown-up. "In the surroundings of the Paris Saint-Germain dressing room, they tell me that Sergio Ramos has grown up, with some details of the team staff, with the people who work for the players, he didn't like it. The demands have come asking for too many things. He is indeed a star, but in front of him, some players are more stars than him", portrayed the Cadena Ser chronicler.
The media defined his actions as "grown-up," a term related to certain airs of power that he still does not hold in the Parisian club beyond being one of the leading figures in European football. This would have been added to the fact that the footballer is still not available to be under Mauricio Pochettino's orders after suffering a soleus injury in his left leg. Although he has returned to training individually, he still does not have an exact return date and would only begin to be considered during the second week of September.
Another drawback that the former merengue will find when returning to the field is not guaranteed ownership. The Argentine coach has complete confidence in his two central, Marquinhos and Kimpembe, so at 35, he will have to fight to win a place.
Age and his hiring were other issues that would have been discussed in the locker room before his signing was finalized. Le Parisien reported some discontent over his signing after they released Thiago Silva, who later joined Chelsea and lifted the Champions League.
The Brazilian, the captain of the team and much loved within the squad, had become a benchmark within the institution. However, the PSG let him go without offering a renewal, considering that due to his age (36 years), his stay in Paris had ended: "It was very disturbing. ۔ I was not there for a season or a few months, it was a story of eight years", he acknowledged months later.
This rumor around Ramos is just a tiny fissure of something that many fear with this Dream Team. Pochettino will have to overcome the ego of the star-studded dressing room, and for that, he has already begun laying the groundwork for the first press conference since the arrival of Lionel Messi.
Do we have a team? I think we don't have a team yet. We have many names that shine on their own, and the great challenge for us as a coaching staff is that those names that shine so much play as a team behave on the field with naturalness and discipline in the organization to achieve results. That is our tremendous challenge", clarified the Argentine DT.
