“The comeback was useless”, the strong words of Luis Enrique!


By: Manu Tournoux

Paris Saint-Germain finally knows its opponent for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The capital club will face FC Barcelona on April 10 at the Parc des Princes and on April 16 in Barcelona.

A reunion between the two clubs which have clashed several times in recent years. A very special meeting for Parisian coach Luis Enrique who coached Barça from 2014 to 2017.

But that’s not all. The Spaniard was the coach of the Catalan club during the Remontada during the 2016-2017 season (4-0 / 1-6). And logically, the 53-year-old man was questioned this Saturday at a pre-match press conference about this significant event in his career. However, for him this rise was of no use.

» The strongest moment of my career? No. This comeback was of no use unfortunately. It did not help to win another Champions League. Juve came out behind us. This match at Camp Nou was very special. But no, it’s not the most important match of my career. »

Before adding: »And then, everyone remembers the comeback but to have one you have to remember that there was a pre-comeback, a 4-0 at the Parc des Princes. That week you know how the coach was “idolized”. How the media talked about the coach, it’s logical, I understand it. I am remembered for the comeback but we were between life and death 15 days before. Today I am on the PSG bench and I will give the best of myself so that PSG goes through as well as the following rounds. »

First return to victory in Ligue 1

Before thinking about FC Barcelona and the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain travels to the MHSC pitch this Sunday evening as part of the 26th day of Ligue 1. The Parisians want to return to victory in the championship and erase the 3 consecutive draws conceded against Rennes, Monaco and Reims. Luis Enrique’s men are provisionally 10 points ahead of Stade Brestois.
