France breaks red card records

Published

France are breaking records for red cards, already with 45 in Ligue 2 and 34 in Ligue 1, and it’s only September.

The fastest red card in Ligue 1 history was handed out on Sunday (18/9): Jean-Clair Todibo was sent off after just 9 seconds in Nice’s game against Angers.

The French league is only in the 9th match day, but 34 red cards have already been distributed. Much more so than the rest of the top leagues.

In fact, the situation is even worse if you look further down. In Ligue 2 there were 45 Reds in 89 games played. That means we see more than one red every other game.

From then on there have been 20 red cards in La Liga, 15 in Serie A, 12 in the Bundesliga and just four in the Premier League.

Paredes bangs Mbappe and talks about their (non-)relationship

Asked about his relationship with Kylian Mbappe in an interview, Leandro Paredes made sure he “made the news” and gave a response that revealed the complete lack of chemistry between them when they were in Paris together.

Kylian Mbappe is regarded – quite rightly – as one of the most important players to emerge on the world football scene in recent years, but as his stocks rise he appears to be ‘crushing’ with the other big names in Paris.

Especially in the case of Neymar, as reports have long surfaced that not only do they want to put the two players on the razor’s edge, but that the Frenchman is putting pressure on the French champions’ management to go ahead with the Brazilian’s sale.

The exact scenarios can’t be proven of course as neither side spoke in person but now another player he knows from the Paris dressing room comes along to drop his… spondes for Mbappe.

He is none other than Leandro Paredes, who was loaned to Juventus in the summer transfer window final, with Mbappe’s three-year-old teammate asked about his relationship with the Frenchman in an interview with ESPN:

“I can’t speak for him myself. I’ve had relationships with those I’ve had relationships with, but for someone they haven’t had relationships with, I can’t tell you.”

As for the reasons that made him move from Paris to Juventus, he was clear: “Changing teams before the World Cup was a difficult decision, but I think I made the right decision.

The most important thing for me was to play enough and in a big team like Juventus. Playing for Juve was one of my dreams.”

Messi: ‘The main goal of Paris is the Champions League, this trophy is not always won by the best’

It’s been months since Paris Saint-Germain were knocked out of the Champions League by Real and Lionel Messi can’t forget him, while Pulga speaks of a competition where the best don’t always win the trophy.

Paris finished last season climbing to the top of France, but that particular feat wasn’t enough to make their world happy as all their friends’ dream and desire – for another year – was the holy grail of the Champions League .

Unfortunately for the Parisians, they met Real’s trophy-collecting machine, with the Merengues knocking out the likes of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe in the quarter-finals with an epic upset at the Bernabeu and the French staying away from the coveted trophy.

Such is their fear, which is fully reflected in the words of Lionel Messi in his interview with Hristo Stojskov for a Mexican Medium (TUDN), with the Argentine superstar even throwing a little… tirade about the trophy that doesn’t always ends up in the hands of the best.

“Last year, after a big change, it was a difficult situation for me to be in the same place for so long. Everyone knows the goal this season. Paris has been looking forward to winning the Champions League for a long time.

Last season’s relegation was too difficult for the path that has come. We had played two great games against Real and the ban came from small details.” The 34-year-old superstar initially pointed this out, adding meaningfully:

“It’s a special year because the World Cup is in between, but the main goal for Paris, like every year, is to win the Champions League.

It’s a very difficult event to win because it’s not always won by the best, it’s always determined by small details, any mistake leaves you out, but we’re preparing for when those difficult situations will come.”

Messi: ‘I’m having fun with Neymar, Mbappe is a beast’

Lionel Messi spoke highly of his Paris teammates Neymar and Mbappe in an interview, with the Argentinian superstar stressing that he has fun with the Brazilian and sees the Frenchman as a complete player.

In the middle of the last decade, Lionel Messi, along with Neymar and Suarez as Barcelona players, had composed one of the world’s ‘killer’ attacking trebles that swept Spain and Europe, and a few years later he is experiencing the ‘same project’ in another country, with another team’s jersey and not exactly the same protagonists.

Neymar is at his side again, but instead of Suarez they have the “very” Mbappe next to them, Pulga gives an interview to the American TV channel “TUDN” and praises his two teammates in Paris.

“Neymar and I have known each other for many years, we had a lot of fun in Barcelona. I would have liked to have enjoyed more with him in Spain, but life here has brought us together again.

Kylian is a different player: he’s a beast, very good in one-on-ones and very fast. He’s a complete player, he’s been proving it for years and he’s definitely one of the best.” he said characteristically.
