Following PSG's convincing 3-0 win against Strasbourg, coach Luis Enrique expressed his satisfaction in the post-match interview. The victory was an absolute must-have for PSG ahead of a pivotal midweek clash with AC Milan in the Champions League.
When asked about the match, Enrique, alternating between English and Spanish, stated, “I think it was a very important Ligue 1 match before restarting the Champions League. We responded very well. I am satisfied with the performance of my players.”
Addressing the second-half pace, Enrique acknowledged the challenge of maintaining focus with a 2-0 lead. He emphasized the team's commitment to ball possession and creating scoring opportunities, highlighting the significance of the overall performance.
Enrique’s choice of the 3-3-4 formation, seen once again in this match, was a topic of discussion. In response, he noted, “We play 3-3-4 when we are moving forward. We can evolve differently; nothing is set in stone. We play as offensively as possible. We are trying to move forward as quickly as possible. The players are doing their best, and I am very happy to see them progress from match to match.”
The coach's remarks underline PSG’s commitment to an attacking style, evident in their strategic formation and swift forward movements. As the team advances in competitions, Enrique remains optimistic about the players' development and overall progress, although these games won't really mean nothing if PSG cannot advance throughout the later stages of the Champions League.
Next in line, a game against Milan.
