Achraf Hakimi shouldn't play in Paris Saint-(PSG) Germain's UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg matchup against Bayern Munich on March 8, according to pundit David Ginola.
The Moroccan full-back was most recently charged with rape. Ginola asserted that Hakimi shouldn't play for the Parisian club against Bayern since his mental condition may not be ideal given the continuing legal issues.
Ginola said (GOAL):
“Hakimi can be disturbed by his business, Football players are not robots. We do not erase what is happening in your life [for] 90 minutes. He must be concerned. Galtier’s puzzle there it is to say if he is going to put it knowing that he is not 100 percent or else put someone else."
David Ginola further added:
“Privileging someone else will be in order. And these positions there (of pistons) are important in his system. To have two cooperative and complementary players.”
PSG lost the first leg against Bayern by a scoreline of 1-0 at the Parc des Princes. Kingsley Coman scored the solitary goal of the match. Hence, the clash at the Allianz Arena is a must-win game for the Parisians.
Achraf Hakimi has been an important player for Christophe Galtier's team this season. He has scored four goals and has provided five assists in 31 matches for the Parisian club this season.
