However, all defenders need not be tall. If you look at, for instance, the ex-Italian captain Fabio Cannavaro, he wasn’t tall, but his technical ability surpassed most of his fellow defenders at that time.

Although Kimpembe has a lot to learn, we can assume with a muscular physique; he will soon possess adequate mental and defensive skills soon.

Further, Presnel is a young athlete, and to keep being a valuable asset to his club, the Frenchman opts for a healthy diet and intense workout regime, and training sessions to be fit for play.

Presnel Kimpembe | Career & Transfer: Club-level & International

Why has the French giant PSG signed Kimpembe? What did they see in him? With many players retiring and the current defensive duo Marquinhos and Thiago Silva getting older, the club needs to plan for the future.

With incredible height, young age, and the potential to learn and improve more, Presnel is a valuable asset and a great replacement for Captain Silva or Marquinhos.

It is quite challenging to be a starter ahead of experienced players until and unless injury strikes them.

But, Presnel helmed the defensive role as a starter in many instances, specifically, the Champions League, one of the biggest competitions in Europe.

Presnel initially started from AS Eragny, a club located in the suburbs of Paris. It is there where he first learned how to operate as a defender. Proper defending is always a difficult task.

Anyone can push opposition and dispossesses them. But to dispossess an opponent without drawing a foul and at the same time being a force that sets up an attack is far more critical.

There are many traits required to be a defender. Some of them are composure, strength, pace, and ball control. Most importantly, marking, tackling and interception are primary skills expected in a defender.

The video below shows exactly why Kimpembe is of dire importance for a club of PSG stature.

In October of the year 2014, Presnel debuted for the Parisian giants against RC Lens as a substitute for Thiago Motta. Thereafter, he was a vital part of the team.

Although not guaranteed a starting spot every game, it is of utmost surety that PSG will not let the French man slide away to a different club.

Moreover, the center-back officially played a Champions League game on February 14, 2017.

Likewise, he managed to help the goalkeeper keep a clean sheet in a 4-0 win against the Spanish giants and CL contenders Barcelona. He scored a goal against the English club, Manchester United, winning the game 2-0.

However, in Paris’s return leg, Kimpembe jumped to block a shot in injury time given as a penalty for handball after the referee consulted VAR.

PSG went on to lose the match 3–1 and was knocked out due to the away goals rule.

On 11 July 2020, Presnel signed a contract extension with PSG, with the deal lasting until 2024. At present, Kimpembe occasionally starts for PSG, and his performance is always praiseworthy.

Give the man 3-4 years, and he will develop into a great defender within that period. The young defender still has hopes to challenge for the CL trophy after a few unsuccessful tries.

International Career

After the withdrawal of Eliaquim Mangala during the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, France national coach Didier Deschamps listed Presnel in the roster. It was his first international call-up, which indeed was a proud moment for the French.

Eventually, the center-back had the opportunity to start for France in a friendly against Russia, and after impressing Deschamps, the PSG man is now an international regular.

Ultimately, with France, Kimpembe won the World Cup, becoming one of the youngest players in the squad alongside Bayern Munich’s Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez.
