After PSG's first defeat of the season, against Nice (2-3), the new Parisian striker, Randal Kolo Muani, downplayed the defeat on the Prime Video microphone, remembering that the squad has just been formed and has experienced many changes this summer.

How do you analyze this first defeat of the season for PSG against Nice (2-3)?

“We played against a very, very solid Nice team. They were undefeated, they were very compact and they managed to score three goals at the Parc. We must not forget that we are a new team and that there have been many changes within the club. We must give ourselves time to work so that we can all feel better together.”

What did you lack compared to the coach's expectations?

“More movement and desire to go faster with the ball. I think we took too long to move the ball. We didn't do enough at this point. In any case, we played a very good game, we should not detract from it.”

When you entered to the game, it was shown that you had a lot of energy and desire, right?

"It's true. It is a great pleasure to play here. I wanted to play and help the team as much as possible. Today we lost, but we have to keep working to win the next game.”

Randal Kolo Muani in just half an hour looked better than, for example, Ousmane Dembele. The Bondy native assisted Kylian Mbappe in the 87th minute of the match, to close the gap and make the score 2-3.

The French striker entered the game to replace Goncalo Ramos, who despite his efforts and not having a particularly bad game, is still unable to make his debut as a scorer in the PSG shirt.

It will be interesting to see the attacking front that Luis Enrique will present next Tuesday when he faces Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, considering the performance of this home defeat.
