The Champion League Paris Saint-Germain's director has broken in the past. Laurent Blanc was quartered at the end of the 2018 Manchester United loss of weakness in 2016. Unai Emery never recovered the collapse in Barcelona next year. Although PSG Liverpool lost on Monday night and was stolen in a group stage, it is impossible for Thomas Tuchel to survive.
But they won 2-1 and, when it was happy, when players danced during the field, a change was made, or at least something started. For the first time in more than a year, PSG won another European. It is a result of management management, rather than a breakdown. And Tuchel did not hide his pride and enjoy the post-game press conference.
In Tuchel's comments, it really stood out that the PSG was taking over. He never felt, as Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc or Unai Emery considered the club as it progressed. Histories were the same, they did not even try to make the semi-finals of the Champions League failed and failed.
But Tuchel's great achievement has been again with this mission as a young team. He said earlier that more experience than PSG is technically true, but he feels strange in Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel di Maria and Gianluigi Buffon. However, when he talked to Tuchel, as his team demonstrated something for the first time, he made an advanced mental realization.
"This was our last chance to show us how to fight," said Tuchele, in his press conference in a very precise French. "Liverpool has incredible thinking and that is why it has been necessary to be able to play and fight against this group, which was to show us our latest opportunity, we could play against a great team. We went ahead for us."
Jurgen Klopp had complaints about PSG's performance, but his performance was struck by the tactical courage of Tuchel. "When you saw the line, the approach you chose was at full risk, especially at the beginning, trying to get their legs in the first place, and with quality, it was very hard to tackle."
Together with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Angel di Maria, gathered in wide areas, and Marquinhos and Marco Verratti sat down together to defend them. To avoid criticism so much, they were able to overcome the serious opposition that they had to play in the first half of the season, which led to Liverpool, who did not play in the PSG teams.
What's more, it was a spectacular relationship between the team and the people, each time it was energized, and each player had a second ordeal. In most courses it is one of the biggest clubs, but in PSG, everything is a very procession that often felt emotionally self-conscious. Tuchel surely too.
Now the challenge achieved by the PSG is to repeat the same intensity over the past 16 years. Last year, they won with Real Madrid two legs, but as they did in February, nobody wants to go. Not back-to-back champions too. Tuchele has repeatedly flared the flame and now has to keep smoking. "We have to keep that spirit," he said. "It's good to create a new atmosphere, a new culture. We did not have an experience and now we feel something."
They may be lost in the last 16 years or the fourth quarter, as they have always been in Qatar. But if they do not, and if it's a serious year, this evening against Liverpool will be remembered tonight when the cents have finally dropped.
