Thomas Tuchel: Attacking Football Is In PSG\'s DNA  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Feb 12, 2019 1:11 am

Thomas Tuchel said PSG will still look to attack even without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

“We have our identity as a team and it’s not easy to change a team’s identity. Obviously we’re missing a couple of key players but I don’t know if it’s the right time to change our ID. We play attacking football, we’re PSG, that’s what we’re used to – to create opportunities, it’s in our DNA. To change that is really difficult but I’m sure there will be times where we will defend deeply,” said Tuchel.

Tuchel added that Kylian Mbappe will shoulder most of their attacking responsibility.

“You can’t just place all the burden on him but we’re talking about Kylian Mbappé – he has his own qualities, it’s not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can’t do all three things at the same time. He has to play his game, to play with confidence and I want us to be capable to help him with the right kind of support, good passes. And, he needs to play with a good mindset, needs to be positive – it’s part of his development.\"
