According to him, Paris is simply ” the worlds best “.
To back up his words, the 60-year-old technician cited the double confrontation between Paris and Real Madrid in the Champions League as an example. ” There was no game for two and a half hours “, he believes. ” After that we comment on the result and elimination. But as a coach, I look at the content. And for two and a half hours PSG enchanted me. It was very, very beautiful to look at. »
Paris were unlucky against Madrid
According to Antonetti, wiping out the Parisian performance against the is totally unfair meringues ” The result made everyone forget, but there was no match in the first leg and the return was played with little. Think of Mbappé’s two offside positions. Everyone forgot! “The former midfielder with a modest career adds in the process that he will not arrive” never understanding how you can completely forget about the content because of a negative result. »
Concluding on this subject, the well-informed coach of the current jump-off confides that ” Sometimes in football you need a bit of success, luck to win. ” From what I’ve seen against Real Madrid, Paris are one of the best teams in the world. Even the best. I repeat myself but it was just very nice to watch even if the last half hour was bad. »
solidity and hope
Asked about the most appropriate strategy to try to catch PSG between ” resist ” and ” try the feat Antonetti assured him that the two would have to be combined. ” Resist, that’s for sure. We’ll have to defend well and whenever we have the opportunity to cause them problems, we will. Above all, I hope that we will be there. If it’s us and we play well, I’ll be happy. After that, if they’re better than us, they’re better than us. That’s all. »
The Venzolasca native, who was also asked to discuss the impact of the atmosphere on the performance of his side, who were very strong against Lyon (1-0) last weekend, admitted that ” the Parc (des Princes) is the place where there is the most noise. It’s very difficult to get your players’ voice when you play there. But it’s impossible to predict things in relation to our audience. Almost a thousand Metz fans are expected in Paris to support their team, who will face an already crowned PSG and end their season with a sober party on their pitch, likely with Kylian Mbappé.
