Entered during the game, Moise Kean appeared in great physical difficulty during Bayern-PSG (2-3). The Italian striker had contracted the Covid-19 in March.
It was a choice that could have surprised. Moise kean, excellent during the reference match of the Paris Saint Germain this season, namely the victory in Barcelona (1-4) in the Champions League, had been left on the bench for the quarter-final of C1 between Bayern Munich and the capital club.
Mauricio Pochettino had preferred him in particular Julian Draxler, a somewhat surprising decision because the German midfielder has rarely been established in recent months in meetings of this magnitude. But RMC had given the explanation before the match, explaining that everything was “On a physical aspect”. “Kean is coming back from Covid-19, it was a few days ago and the return has not necessarily been conclusive physically in recent days in training”, justified our colleagues.
Kean breathless from the start
The match proved Pochettino right. Draxler was generally satisfactory, and Kean’s entry, 20 minutes from the end, produced some astonishing images. Like seeing the young Italian striker catching his breath after just a few races.
Kean was in great shape before being hit with Covid-19, with four goals in five matches and convincing performances. Returning to the field just before the international break, he had known three starters without a goal before this trip to Munich. It is now that he seems to be suffering from the effects of Covid-19.
Italy sends Kean back to Paris
Mbappé, it’s historic!
Marquinhos, the real hard blow
When we see the entrance of Moïse Kean, completely cooked physically, we understand perfectly the choice of Pochettino not to establish him. It was even very disturbing to see him in such difficulty, only a few minutes after he came into play.

Moise Kean is a great advertisement for the vaccine.
Even for young people.
Better to be vaccinated and have 1 day of fever (at worst), than to take several weeks to recover from this crap.#BAYPAR
