Paris St Germain goalkeeper Ronan Le Crom cries after poor debut against Lorient

Posted by - May 28, 2013 - France

Paris St Germain had wrapped the title up well before their last day of the season trip to Lorient, and therefore took the opportunity to give a few squad players a run out.

This approach included the introduction on the hour mark of third-choice goalkeeper Ronan Le Crom, who replaced Salvatore Sirigu. Le Crom, no spring chicken at 38, had been at the Parc Des Princes for 16 months, but this was his first game. Think Mike Pollitt, but French.

The goalkeeper managed to fail in rather abject fashion, bringing down Lorient’s Lamine Gassama with ten minutes to go, causing him to be sent from the field after just 21 minutes of his PSG career.

To make matters worse, Le Crom then proceeded to cry his little eyes out at his embarrassment, although we suspect that was a deliberate ploy to get a cuddle of David Beckham. Pretty sure Rebecca Loos tried the same thing once.
