Newcastle-PSG, Luis Enrique does not give up


By: Manu Tournoux

On October 4, PSG lost on Newcastle in the Champions League (4-1). Almost three months later, Luis Enrique still analyzes this match the same way.

In an interview with the club channel, the Spanish technician persisted and signed, deeming the result unfair and the criticism that followed unjustified. “ I already said it at the time, the defeat at Newcastle was, for me, very unfair, totally undeserved and the statistics reflect it. The score was unfairly heavy, but that doesn’t matter, it’s football. »

In the eyes of the former La Roja coach, the Parisians showed great things that evening. “ Not everything had gone as we had planned, but then we worked on what didn’t go there. But I saw players who were involved. (…) I didn’t have to go back on anything because I liked what I saw. »

And to add a touch of paranoia in his retrospective: “ I know it was a match that my detractors and those who still want PSG to lose loved. It doesn’t matter, it’s part of the process… » On the return against these same Magpies at the Parc des Princes, PSG, certainly dominant, miraculously snatched the draw from the penalty spot (1-1). A saving outcome in the race for the round of 16, finally well and truly won by the capital club which will face Real Sociedad on February 14 and March 5.
