Injury Blow for Paris Saint-Germain as Milan Skriniar Joins Kimpembe on Sidelines

Paris Saint-Germain's defensive crisis deepens as Milan Skriniar faces a potential season-ending ankle injury blow.

Paris Saint-Germain faces a defensive crisis as Milan Skriniar sustains a serious ankle injury, potentially ruling him out for the rest of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain’s recent Trophée des Champions victory over Toulouse FC came at a cost, as Milan Skriniar picked up a significant ankle injury during the match. The 28-year-old, who joined PSG from Inter Milan in the summer, is set to join Presnel Kimpembe on the sidelines, dealing a blow to the team’s defensive lineup.

Skriniar, coming off the bench in the 71st minute of the triumph at the Parc des Princes, may miss the remainder of the season, as reports from RMC Sport suggest an extended absence due to potential surgery on his left ankle.

The injury compounds PSG’s defensive woes, with Kimpembe already recovering from ankle surgery, Hakimi participating in the Africa Cup of Nations, and Mendes still sidelined. The team will now heavily rely on Lucas Beraldo, who made his debut for PSG after replacing the injured Skriniar.

While the exact nature of Skriniar’s injury remains unknown, it is confirmed that he will be unavailable for both legs of Real Sociedad’s Champions League last-16 match. Sources hint that the severity of the situation might necessitate surgery, casting doubt on Skriniar’s participation for the remainder of the season.

With uncertainties surrounding Skriniar’s recovery timeline, PSG faces the challenge of reshuffling their defensive strategy. Beraldo’s timely arrival may offer a solution, but the absence of key players puts the team’s defensive capabilities to the test as they navigate crucial matches in various competitions.

As PSG adapts to these setbacks, fans anxiously await updates on Skriniar’s condition and the team’s defensive resilience in the upcoming fixtures.
