This Monday at a press conference on the eve of the first leg against Manchester United, Thomas Tuchel has given his certainties but also some doubts. Among them, the coach of Paris Saint-Germain hsite qualifies his rookie Leandro Paredes for this first round of the Champions League.
Thomas Tuchel still has doubts about his Manchester comp.
Thomas Tuchel has warned, despite the injuries of wounded Neymar and Edinson Cavani, Paris Saint-Germain does not attack Old Trafford to defend. The Paris trainer retains his philosophy and wants to score at least this famous goal.
Under these circumstances, the last member of the CMN, namely Kylian Mbapp, could be tempted to play the rescuers against Manchester United on Tuesday (9 PM). Hence the technician's warning about the media.
Mbapp must remain Kylian
We can no longer put pressure on Kylian, said the Paris coach. He is Kylian and he has his qualities. His job is not to replace Cavani and Neymar at the same time. He has to play freely, in confidence, and I want to help him with good passes. It is necessary that he plays with a good mood, he is here to grow up. Knows Tuchel, the French striker tends to do too much in the absence of his Brazilian companion.
Another fear for the German, the form of his rookie Leandro Paredes. Certainly, the tactician appreciated the start of his midfielder at PSG. But that may not be enough to start a knockout round of the Champions League. He spent just two weeks with us, Tuchel remembered. He has not played for several weeks since he comes from St. Petersburg. It is not easy because it lacks rhythm.
Paredes, Tuchel thinks
But I trust him because he has the quality to help us, in his style. He is very intelligent, he complimented. I have to think and see if it starts tomorrow (Tuesday). We will need him. Last week the trainer Ile had trusted that he knew 10 of the 11 players of his future compo. It is clear that the last doubt relates to civil society, a sector of Marco Verratti is not 100%, while Adrien Rabiot is still a car.
The middle, however, will be the waiting area because of a certain Paul Pogba in excellent shape between the Red Devils. He is an incredible player with a lot of skills. He almost never loses the ball, offensively he is able to make the difference in one against the other said Tuchel, who is afraid of his agreement with Anthony Martial, the other Frenchman in an excellent period.
Pogba is very dangerous with Martial on the left, said the PSG coach. The two together are dangerous and Pogba can come into the surface when the centers arrive, he has a big main game. We can see that he is a leader. It is impressive. In the composition of his team, Tuchel does not have the right to make mistakes.
