“We’ll get to grips with what’s best, what can be done for the team to be successful together and win big things.

“We have to bring to bear the qualities we have for the good of the team. That’s how we can achieve big things.

“As soon as we understand that, we can achieve many things, because we can’t carry on like this.”

PSG will host Toulouse this Saturday in a Ligue 1 fixture with both Neymar and Mbappe injury doubts for the game.
