PSG eliminated from the groups? “I have the balls,” says a former Blue

PSG will play its future in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, at Borussia Dortmund. A failure would not be to the taste of the former international, Benoît Trémoulinas.

Paris Saint-Germain will play very big on Wednesday evening, near Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. For its final meeting in the group stage of the Champions League, the club from the French capital must not lose, because it could well see Newcastle or AC Milan pass it in front and steal the second and final qualifying place for the round of 16 of the competition. If such a disaster scenario were to occur, criticism would not wait long to fall on Luis Enrique and his troupe. For some the blow would be very hard.

This is the feeling expressed Tuesday by Benoît Trémoulinas. Former French international who became a consultant for the channel The Team, putting himself in the shoes of a PSG player eliminated from the group stage made him say that he would not experience it well at all. “ I understand that supporters and followers are a little more lenient this year since many have asked for the departure of the stars, the Neymars, the Messis, even the Draxlers. (…) But despite everything, you remain PSG which has invested millions and millions in the transfer window. (…) Whether they are eliminated in the eighth or quarters, no worries. The difference is enormous. I’m a player, I get out of the groups, I play for PSG, I have the balls.

Adversaries who are not transcendent?

For the former defender, the level of the opponents would not explain seeing Paris go down to the Europa League either. “ We talk about Dortmund, we talk about Milan, it’s not either… This year’s Newcastle is not quite the same as last year. It’s Paris Saint-Germain, they have to come out of the group. » The mission has been known for a while for Kylian Mbappé and his partners. They know what they have to do against Borussia to continue their season in C1.
