In the wake of PSG's dominant 3-0 triumph over AC Milan, coach Luis Enrique shared his thoughts about the win with both Canal+ and RMC, placing particular emphasis on the significance of the result on top of everything else.

The victory helped PSG reach the top of Group F of the UEFA Champions League overtaking everybody else including Newcastle and Borussia Dortmund, both having four points through three games compared to PSG's tally of six.

Speaking with Canal+, Luis Enrique acknowledged, "What I liked the most was the result." The PSG manager noted that finding solutions as the game progressed had been a challenge early. However, he underscored the pivotal moment when PSG secured a goal right after the 30th minute, leading to a shift in momentum that propelled them to a commanding position in the match and the eventual victory.

In his interview with RMC Sport, Luis Enrique expanded on the overall match dynamics. He praised the team's defensive performance, acknowledging that Milan had an upper hand early on.

Luis Enrique attributed the team's success to overcoming early mistakes, staying calm, and gaining better control of the game which in turn resulted in increased opportunities to create scoring chances and score goals.

Among the standout performances, Luis Enrique expressed his satisfaction with Randal Kolo Muani, stating, "They all are happy! Everyone needs to score goals. We play as a team, contributing to both attack and defense. If he scores, all the better. Kolo Muani did an incredible job."

The PSG manager focused on highlighting the team's "cohesive team effort," praising both the defensive stoutness of the players as well as their sublime attacking transitions leading up to the final 3-0 result and securing a resounding victory against an AC Milan squad that is facing quite a steep hill to make it to the knockout stages of the Champions League after reaching last season's semi-finals.
