More than a year. The last appearance of Juan Bernat (28) on a Ligue 1 pitch dates back to September 16, 2020, against FC Metz (1-0). A serious knee injury stopped the trajectory of the left side, excellent since his arrival at Paris SG in the summer of 2018 from Bayern Munich. After a long rehabilitation and complications, the Spaniard returned to competition this Friday evening, against Angers (2-1, 10th day of L1), coming into play in the second half instead of Abdou Diallo.

A strong moment accompanied by encouragement and hearty applause from the public of the Parc des Princes. Present in a mixed zone at the end of the game, the Iberian could not hide his intense emotion. “Happy. I was very happy to be back on the pitch, to play football, to do what I love the most. I feel very happy. Today (Friday) is a very important day for me, because it has been a very, very long journey, over a year. I got goosebumps when I heard the audience chant my name. I am very happy to be back ”, he confided.

If he enjoys so much, it is because the Iberian international (11 caps, 1 goal) has thought for a time of the worst in the face of the difficulties encountered during his convalescence. “I hope that the most complicated is behind me and I am looking to the future. It was difficult, because it was an injury that got complicated. I had to pass on the pool table three times. Normally, an injury like this takes between 5 and 7 months to come back. Me, I took 13 months, almost double. There are difficult times, when you think the knee will not respond. It’s hard. I had a hard time living it. I want to forget, leave it behind, be happy and do what I love again ”, he let go

A choice that the former resident of Valence CF fully understands. “There is a lot of competition in the team, PSG have recruited very well, we have a very good team. We want to win everything, it’s normal that there is a lot of competition. You have to be at the top to fight for your place and, in the end, it’s the coach who makes his choices ”, he concluded.
