Ander Herrera (PSG midfielder on Téléfoot) : “A very strong group, I think. Perhaps the most spicy of all. But we are ready. We have already had a good Champions League. It will be challenges against Leipzig and MU that we know well. And something new with Basakshir, it’s never easy to play in Turkey. If we are ready to do the same thing again? We had a very good Final 8, but we lost the Final. This is the feeling we have left. There is a feeling of revenge. We want to show everyone to fight again for this Champions League. But, this group of the first round is very strong. If we miss each other during a match, we can be eliminated. It will be necessary to be attentive. It will be necessary to prepare all the matches like finals. Error is prohibited. Everyone dreams of winning this Champions League. We must play with optimism and the conviction to win it, but we cannot pretend to do so. I think we’ve lost some important players, but it’s also an opportunity for other players to take a step forward and play at the same level as those who left ”.
Thomas Tuchel (Paris Saint-Germain coach, PSGTV): “We are happy and looking forward to returning to the Champions League soon. It’s a very difficult draw, but the goal is to get through this group stage. We know Manchester United very well. We will of course try to repeat the result obtained two seasons ago at Old Trafford (2-0), and do better at Parc des Princes (1-3). We will also find Leipzig after the semi-final (3-0), and everyone is fully aware of the strength of this team after their campaign last season. I don’t know much about Istanbul Basaksehir at the moment, but playing international matches in Turkey is always a big challenge. ”
