The ever attacking Paris Saint-Germain team was limited to the most defensive Paris Saint-Germain side ever to play in any competition and this has been a concern to many.
Paris Saint-Germain have one of the most scariest trio leading their attack in Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Dos Santos Jr and Lionel Messi with Angel Di Maria ready to thrill anytime he is called upon.
After been defeated by a zealous Manchester Cite by 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium, Thierry Henry gave his verdict on their abysmal performance saying,
“If you want to win the Champions league, you can’t defend with seven (7) players. It is just impossible, I don’t care who you are. The sides are exposed so it’s practically a 3v1 or 3v2 on the field.
The team that wins titles and even more in the Champions league has its three strikers against the ball. This way, sideways will be more comfortable with what’s going on behind them. But for now, they’re too exposed to PSG. Team sin France can’t expose then, but Manchester City can”.
With Henry’s previous managerial position in France with Monaco, he has definitely played against Paris Saint-Germain and probably knows their strength and thinks they entered the game against Manchester City very wrong.
Would this keep Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero’s job at risk? would he be able to fulfill Paris Saint-Germain’s dream of lifting the UEFA Champions league trophy?
Mauricio Roberto Pochettino Trossero who was linked to the Manchester United job would have to wait as the Red Devils have sealed a contract with another German master tactician.
