Following PSG's tough loss to Newcastle (1-4 on the road), manager Luis Enrique is under media scrutiny. However, all signs point toward the staff and the players of the team backing the coach and offering him internal support.
Taking responsibility for the defeat, Luis Enrique stated, "I am the first and only one responsible for what happened." Despite external criticism of his 4-2-4 formation, PSG reports strong backing for the coach, emphasizing that the daring tactics align with the club's vision for an "aggressive and creative" approach.
Sources close to the club reveal that Luis Enrique has consistently employed this playing style since the season's start in training sessions, defending the offensive role assigned to Vitinha. PSG is urging patience amidst media noise, citing ongoing reconstruction and significant summer changes as reasons to stand by the coach.
The players, acknowledging the missed opportunity against Newcastle, remain confident in Luis Enrique. They recognize the time needed to assimilate the new playing system, especially with extensive squad changes over the summer. The challenge now is to answer critics in the upcoming fixtures, starting with the return match and a crucial clash against Rennes on Sunday.
