PSG manager Tuchel got angry when asked about PSG’s low goal-scoring rate
In the post-match conference someone asked PSG manager Thomas Tuchel about PSG’s goal-scoring rate, on that thing he got angry and said, “So, what’s the big deal, Yes, we’re still lucky. You can write it down. It’s the only thing, we’re lucky. That’s the way it is, no quality, only luck.”
He added, “It’s football. It’s in football. It’s only football. Do you know the result of Liverpool against Barcelona in Barcelona [when Liverpool lost 3-0 in 2019]? How they played and then they won the Champions League. Give me a team that scores four or five goals in every match… it’s not possible. But you are always looking for something negative – 99 positive points but no, we’ll look for the 100th one which will be negative. We’re going to look for problems.”
The manager continued, “There’s no problem, we won. I’m not going to apologize for this goal story. Since how many games have we had? No need to find excuses for that. They are reliable guys who play, enjoy working, and suffering together. That makes me very happy. I am proud and happy.”
