PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is not at all happy with his squad.
Paris Saint-German drew 2-2 with Bordeaux, resulting in added frustration after the Ligue 1 reigning champions lost 3 goals to Monaco last week. Tuchel was already concerned about the team’s form, saying his team “did not play seriously enough” and “completely stopped playing football”.
And now with the Man United clash coming up, Tuchel has given up hope.
“We can not play without effort as we did in the second half,” Tuchel told Canal+. “The first half was okay, we played simple.
“But we lacked the seriousness to finish this match, to kill it. We lacked determination in the area.
“We lacked everything in the second half: discipline, effort… everything. It was worse than against Monaco. We lacked effort, discipline, attitude.
“Normally I always protect my team but today I totally disagree. It is not necessary to lose points a second time like that after Monaco. We lost the second half and it is absolutely our responsibility – mine, too.
“We must see another PSG against Manchester; it is not possible to play a match of this level.
“I don’t understand why we don’t take our responsibilities, why we don’t play more seriously.”
Neymar has also urged his team to improve their form before the upcoming Manchester United Champions League clash.
“We know the importance of the Champions League game on Wednesday,” he told Canal+. “This is decisive. We didn’t play well against Leipzig (in a 1-0 victory on Tuesday), but we managed to win.
“On Wednesday we are going to try to have our best game, play well, but we need to improve certain details, play more as a team, be more organised, otherwise it is going to be difficult.”
