PSG: Riolo challenges Barcola


By: Manu Tournoux

Bradley Barcola, the Parisian hope, is expected at the turn by Daniel Riolo this Tuesday against Borussia Dortmund.

Daniel Riolo has issued a friendly warning to Bradley Barcola ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s match against Borussia Dortmund. “Bambi, he has the right side. He can play both sides, Bambi, right? I ask that he smack my mouth in a Champions League match…” he said.

While encouraging him to develop his game on the right side, the editorialist expressed his wish to see the former Lyonnais show maturity on the pitch. “It’s not that I don’t want Barcola, but he has to grow,” he continued. It’s not because I said against Newcastle that it was the lamb, which first of all is not an insult, it’s someone who has to grow, who is not finished.” The RMC polemicist also clarified that his previous comments do not call into question the player’s potential. “That doesn’t mean he’s not going to become good or that he’s going to miss all his games,” he added.

Indeed, during the Champions League match against Newcastle at the Parc des Princes, the talent from Villeurbanne missed several opportunities which could have changed the course of the match, provoking the reaction of the journalist. “We’re talking about the Champions League, he can’t behave like he did! He is at Youth League level! He manages to create chances, he is all alone in front of goal but he is not likely to score! Barcola he eats five, they are bigger than us combined,” Riolo said.

See you this evening (9 p.m.) at Iduna Park.
