Blanc Lifts His First Ligue 1 Trophy
Laurent Blanc lifted his first Ligue 1 trophy in charge of PSG in the previous season of the French League as PSG charged their way to the top and secured the title in a comfortable fashion as they collected a total of 89 points which was 9 more points than their nearest rivals As.Monaco but in this new season which started a few weeks ago, PSG is struggling to win matches.
The last league match that PSG played was against the last team in the tables, Evian and only managed to claim 1 point as the game concluded in a 0-0 draw. The star striker of the club is Zlatan Ibrahimovic and he is not able to play after an injury he sustained and the Swedish giant is not expected to play in the next league game of PSG where they play against Saint-Etienne.
Unfortunately for Laurent Blanc, he has had to start the French League without having some of his star players such as: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva. During PSG’s match against Evian, Blanc tried to fill in the gap left by the Swedish forward by placing Edinson Cavani into a more central figure in his starting lineup but the former Napoli player seemed to be out of place and could never accomplish the task that was given to him, score goals.
Edinson Cavani arrived to PSG with a price tag of €64 million but the Uruguayan attacker has struggled trying to make a name for himself in the French League as he is often being overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic but now that the Swedish forward is out injured, this is the time of Cavani to step it up and prove why PSG was willing to spend so much money for him.
This is the season where PSG has to defend their league title and so far it has not been the dream start that Laurent Blanc wanted it to be but there is enough time for him and the players to show their potential and claim the top spots.
