Luis Campos after 1-3 loss to Lorient: "I expect a reaction"
The sporting advisor of PSG, Luis Campos, addressed the press in a rare appearance in front of the cameras following Paris Saint-Germain's defeat against Lorient (1-3) at the Parc des Princes on Sunday.
Campos reacted to the defeat by calling for a shakeup of the whole club with the aim of winning the Ligue 1 title as soon as possible, something PSG should have already achieved this late in the season.
"We understand very well that the supporters are disappointed today. We are too," said Campos. "The whole team is very disappointed," told Campos to the microphones of Canal+ after the game.
Achraf Hakimi was sent off in the first half before the 20th minute. PSG were jostled from start to finish by a much-better Lorient side on Sunday. Campos was furious and even went down to the locker room to have an argument with Christophe Galtier and the PSG players at the break.
"It's hard to lose like that, you have to react quickly. We have been first in the championship since the first day," Campos said. "We must not lose our heads and continue our work to get this title.
OM defeated Auxerre and they are now only five points behind PSG with five games left on both teams' schedules.
"We need the supporters, the players, the coach, and all the staff to end the season well. We did a difficult job in a difficult year, and we are all together to get this title," Campos continued. "I demand a reaction from everyone. It's time to say that the club must be together."
Paris Saint-Germain play their next on Sunday, on the road against Troyes. That match was referred to as one that "will set the pace for the title," according to PSG captain Marquinhos speaking after the game against Lorient.
