Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel believes his team should have had a penalty during their 2-2 draw against Bordeaux.
After dropping points for the first time in the league this season, Tuchel feels his team should have been awarded a penalty after Neymar was fouled with the score at 1-0.
The former Barcelona star also had a goal ruled out for offside.
“We had a good first half, we were focused, it was good and we put a lot of effort in,” Tuchel said, according to FourFourTwo.
“If there is a penalty on Neymar? Yes, and they [VAR] did not look at the action, it was a crucial action.”
“The valid goal that we scored… he watched it for five minutes but nothing for that? We have to stop thinking and start analysing! The referee has forgotten them, the first one could have allowed us to lead 2-0, and at 2-0, everything is over.”
“So it’s a bit hard because we played a good game, except for the first minutes in the second half, we lacked intensity at that moment and Bordeaux deserved to score a goal, but then we had intensity and opportunities again, which will be hard to explain.”
Meanwhile, Tuchel also confirmed that Edinson Cavani missed the game against Bordeaux due to fitness rather tactical reasons.
“He played a lot of matches and he needed rest,” Tuchel added.
