Berbatov sidelined for Monaco against PSG

03 October 2014, 17:33

Monaco - Monaco's Bulgarian striker Dimitar Berbatov will miss Sunday's Ligue 1 clash at Paris Saint-Germain after suffering an ankle injury in midweek European action.

"Berbatov won't be available to play at Paris," Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim confirmed on Friday.

Berbatov was replaced by Yannick Ferreira Carrasco after picking up the right ankle injury in the second half of the goalless draw at Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League.

Monaco are already without suspended Jeremy Toulalan.

"The team has lost two important players," said Jardim. "But the most important is the team and the equilibrium. I have confidence in the players who will replace them."

Tiemoue Bakayoko should replace Toulalan in midfield with Jardim having several choices to replace Dimitar Berbatov, with Valere Germain, Lucas Ocampos or Anthony Martial.

Monaco are languishing in 12th place in the league with 10 points from eight games.
