Presnel Kimpembe ruled out of 2022 World Cup with hamstring injury

PSG centre-back Presnel Kimpembe will not be appearing at the 2022 World Cup with France. He has withdrawn from the team as he hasn’t regained the fitness needed to perform at the top level. 

The decision has been confirmed by the FFF, who released an official statement regarding the same. Didier Deschamps has chosen Monaco’s Axel Disasi as his replacement. 

Presnel Kimpembe will not be part of France’s World Cup squad 

“Presnel Kimpembe will not participate in the World Cup. The Paris-SG defender does not consider himself sufficiently recovered to be able to hold his place in the defense of the Blues in Qatar. This decision was taken this morning, in Clairefontaine, after an exchange between the player and the doctor of the French team, Dr. Franck Le Gall, then between the player and Didier Deschamps,” the official statement from the FFF read. 

“The staff of the French team salutes the honesty of Presnel and wishes him to regain all of his physical means as soon as possible. Didier Deschamps has decided, to replace Presnel Kimpembe, to call on Axel Disasi. The AS Monaco defender is expected during the day at Clairefontaine.”
