Does this defeat scare you for the rest of your time at PSG?

"No. I came for a two-year project. Everyone is speculating about what will happen at the end of the season, but the goal now is to be champion."

"Will this defeat lead to reflection by the board? Maybe. But, we must put the context: there were eight players missing, to which we must add a mandatory change at the break since Pembele got injured. Does the fact of losing this match put everything into question? This is the seventh defeat since the return of the World Cup. There are no excuses, but there are reasons. We have to analyze things much more precisely."

"I repeat, there are still 10 league games left, we are still ahead, and we will do everything to be champions of France. I dare to hope that we will recover players and that we will have a much more competitive squad against Lyon in two weeks."

When you lose seven games in two months managing PSG... how do you imagine the future?

"I am not focused on my future at PSG but on the 10 matches that remain and the desire to finish as the champion of France having won a lot of matches. I live it with a lot of lucidity, trying to have the right analysis, trying to unite the players, and pushing them not to let go."

Next. Who is in the PSG predicted lineup vs. Rennes?. dark

"I am always active, I am not passive, I am not worried about myself, and I am determined to have a good end to the season and to be champion at the end of the campaign. But we will have to get people back and that will make for a more complete squad to develop a more lively and alert game."
