PSG Star Dropped For Liverpool Clash After Clash With Thomas Tuchel

PSG will be without midfielder Adrien Rabiot after the player reportedly clashed with manager Thomas Tuchel just hours before the Ligue 1 champions were due to face Liverpool in the Champions League.

PSG will head into their must win Champions League group game with Adrien Rabiot on the bench after former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel made the call to drop the player.

Rabiot's contract will expire in the summer and there has been a lot of talk around where he will go. The club have wanted to keep him but he has so far refused to sign a new deal.

According to SPORT, PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi was due to meet the player and his agent later this week to make a decision on his future but director of football Antero Henrique had previously spoken about selling the 23 year old in January to get a transfer fee from him leaving.

Liverpool, Spurs and Barcelona have all been linked with a move for the midfielder.

It is not the first time the Frenchman has had an issue with a manager. Ahead of the World Cup last summer he refused to be on the standby list for Didier Deschamps side for the tournament in Russia.

PSG need to win tonight in Paris as a win for Liverpool and Napoli, who play Red Star Belgrade, would see them knocked out of the Champions League in the Group Stages.

A win would put them a win over Red Star on Matchday Six away from getting into the knockout stages after Christmas.

The loss of Rabiot is a lift to Liverpool and a blow to PSG for sure.
