The Paris Saint-Germain footballer has warned his teammates that the recent form of Manchester United can be dangerous.
With two days to go before Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United play at Old Trafford, PSG footballer Julian Draxler has warned his teammates.
The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 at Old Trafford will not be easy.
“Manchester has won nearly all their matches recently,” Draxler told the club’s official website.
“They are in good form now, they have a new coach… they were playing well with Mourinho, but now they seem to be really confident now.”
“They are very dangerous, but I think our team is also very strong so it will be a very interesting tie and let’s hope we can make it,” he added.
“Yes, I played there several times. My first math there was when I was 17, with Schalke in the Champions League Semifinals, that was a big moment for me because Old Trafford has a lot of history, a great atmosphere and it’s a great club also.”
“The second time was with Wolfsburg in the group stages and unfortunately we lost both matches, so this year, I think it’s time to win there,” he continued.
“It’s always important to have the second leg in your own stadium, with your crowd and everyone will be excited about the match but the first challenge is to go there and get a good result so that we can be comfortable for the second match at home.”
3⃣ points ✔️
