Florenzi's PSG debut overshadowed by brawl

Alessandro Florenzi’s PSG debut did not go entirely to plan, as his team lost 1-0 to Olympique Marseille in a game with five red cards, including Neymar.

The Italy international made his transfer from Roma on loan with option to buy earlier this week and was thrown straight into the starting XI on Sunday evening.

Florenzi ended up playing 84 minutes of the Ligue 1 match, which ended 1-0 for Marseille thanks to a Florian Thauvin goal.

He wasn’t the main headline, though, thanks to a chaotic and bitter affair that saw five players sent off.

That is also partly because he only made two substitute appearances all season due to a serious ankle injury that has been dragging on for almost a year.
