The captain’s word
The Brazilian central defender and PSG captain, Marquinhos, avoided commenting on whether Paris Saint-Germain is the “team to beat” in the Champions League and assured that, in any case, once the game starts there are no stars on the pitch , only 22 footballers seeking victory.
“We went out onto the pitch in the mood as if this game were the last. Once the game starts there are no more stars, you have to sacrifice yourself, you don’t win a game with your name. Soccer is not played before the referee whistles ”, Marquinhos said on the eve of Wednesday’s match against Bruges in the Champions League.
“I let the people speak, I am not going to say that PSG is the best team in the world or the team to beat, I let the journalists and the fans say that”, he pointed.
Marquinhos added that PSG always has “pressure” to win, although it took on the expectations raised by a team with a forward signed by Messi, Neymar and Mbappé.
“It is true that with the group that we have, people will talk even more and they will want to see our games more, but it is good to have players like this, much better for us, there is no more pressure, it is only positive”, said.
About the Argentine star, who will make his European debut with PSG tomorrow, he said that he has not had a specific talk with him from captain to newcomer, although they speak “Every day, football, strategy and tactics.”
“A captain must also appear on the field, not only with the word, that is how I like to show my leadership. Later if it is necessary to speak one day I would do it, but it is not the moment “, concluded
Without fear of what happens
Bruges coach Philippe Clement pointed out on the eve of Leo Messi’s Champions League debut with PSG that his team has nothing to lose in the match against the powerful Parisian team.
“It is one of the easiest games of the season. We only have things to gain and nothing to lose ”, Clement declared at the press conference prior to the match against PSG.
Clement acknowledged that some of his footballers have never faced players of the stature of Kylian Mbappé or Neymar.
“We want to get the most out of this match. It is even more level than Real Madrid two seasons ago, it will be a really interesting game for the team ”, Clement said in reference to the crossing with the white team, which ended with a 2-2 in Spain and 1-3 in Belgium.
The coach approached the match against PSG with realism, but without complexes when looking for the area of the Qatari team in Paris.
“We are not going to stay eleven in our area the 90 minutes. We want to create chances and score goals, we have worked with that in mind. I want to see a team that collectively attack and defend. Obviously, it will be necessary to be a little more efficient in defense “, he pointed.
