“A soldier always comes back to fight”. This Saturday, among the many banners deployed by the Collectif Ultras Paris in the Auteuil corner, one of them particularly caught the attention of the public: the one paying tribute to Presnel Kimpembe, who was seriously injured against OM (0-3) last Sunday and whose season is definitely over.
“A soldier always returns to combat, could we read on the banner, deployed across the width of the platform. Presko, we won’t let you go. A welcome message of support for the vice-captain of the club, who reacted via Twitter. “Thank you for your support, it goes straight to my heart,” he wrote. Another proof that Parisian supporters are the best. I can only thank you for supporting me since day one. Your soldier will be back in combat as soon as possible. »
Victim of a ruptured right Achilles tendon on Sunday in Marseille, Presnel Kimpembe was successfully operated on Tuesday. He should be out until next fall and therefore miss not only the end of the current season, but also the start of the next one. Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes, he appeared on crutches.
After watching his team’s victory, not far from Neymar, he took to the pitch after the match to celebrate Kylian Mbappé’s goalscoring record with all his teammates. The latter, after receiving a trophy, posed with the team. This moment immortalized, Presnel Kimpembe turned towards the Auteuil stand to greet the CUP. A first gesture of thanks before his text published this Sunday.
