The twilight of Jesé

The canary played 15 minutes yesterday in PSG's defeat against Lens and could not give Tuchel enough reasons to count on him this season.


More than a year later, Jesé Rodríguez returned to play a game with the PSG shirt. The canary played 15 minutes in the defeat of the Parisian team against Lens and his participation was purely testimonial. He had no clear scoring situation and barely touched 11 balls since entering the field.In fact, if we look at the statistics of the former Real Madrid player against Lens, the data works against him. He touched 11 balls, lost 6 of them, had a 43% success rate in the pass (3 completed passes of 7 attempts), tried a dribble without success and lost both duels he had in the area. Although he had barely been training for a week, Jesé could not claim against Lens yesterday.

The prestigious newspaper L'Equipe, which establishes the scores of the players in all the Ligue 1 matches, gave Jesé an unrated. The forward was facing a unique opportunity, since the seven absences due to PSG's coronavirus allowed him to enter the call. However, Tuchel preferred to line up the youthful Kalimuendo and then give him entry when the Parisians lost 1-0. On Sunday, against Marseille, Jesé could have his last great opportunity in the French capital to show that he still has a lot of football.
