Can you give us any updates on injured players like Hakimi?

"Achraf Hakimi completed part of the collective session on Thursday, he will do all of it a few hours from now and we will make a decision on his participation afterward. Nordi Mukiele is very close to starting-level fitness. You have seen Warren Zaire-Emery work on the right side of the pitch in training sessions to compensate for absences but his position is in midfield."

If Hakimi is able to play, could you play with a three-man defense behind two wing-backs?

"It's a possibility. We have already played and been good in that system but [we have not used it] against Marseille. Against OM we played four (defenders) with more or less success…"

"When I talk about depth, I'm not going to ask Lionel Messi to throw himself all around pressing; he's the one who will find the key passes in depth. I will ask the wing-backs to project themselves more than they're doing these days."

At the end of Friday's session we saw you chatting with Marquinhos for a long time...

"Yes, we wanted to enjoy [the public training session]. Enjoying against the Parisian fans watching the work of the three players who were in front of goal, but above all enjoying this moment. For a coach, these are rare moments. So I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the stadium."
