Thomas Tuchel has hailed the team effort of Paris Saint Germain players in their win in the round of 32 of Coupe De France.
The Ligue 1 champions went onto win their clash against Strasbourg and make their way into the round of 16.
PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has said that it is a great start to their Coupe De France campaign after their win against Strasbourg in the round of 32 clash of the prestigious tournament. Speaking to the media after the match, the German gaffer expressed his delight on the victory. He said, “We made a great start. I really liked the quality and the rhythm. The only problem was that we struggled to get that second goal. I am especially happy with the performance of our midfield. Julian Draxler played very simple and disciplined. Dani also played very well. Always with that same mentality. It’s very important to go on a winning run.”
However, there has been a concern over the injury situation of team talisman and Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr, who picked up a knock in the match and was rushed to the hospital. Speaking about his injury situation, the PSG manager said, “I don’t have any update on Neymar. He has gone straight to the hospital. I think he was worried when he came off because it was the same right-foot that he was operated on last season.”
