Did you have any exchanges with the players after the game against Bayern?

"I spoke to them quickly after the game. Kylian spoke after the game too, as you know. On Thursday, we had a rest day but obviously, I spoke on the phone with the sporting director, Luis Campos, and also with the president and, this morning individually, I met some players."

What does Presnel Kimpembe bring to PSG on and off the pitch?

"Presnel is one of the captains, one of the most important players for PSG. He is also a product of the club, so he knows perfectly well the responsibilities you have when you wear the PSG jersey. He also knows the environment well. He has a thirst to play because he has been out for long months, both without training and playing competitively. Obviously, his presence and his return are an asset, an added value even if he will not yet be at 150% of his capabilities. He is also left-footed, which is very important in the game, and he has the innate ability to be a natural leader. We need mental freshness, determination, and desire. We need to defend going forward and he has that ability."
