Tuchel: PSG lacked rhythm

Paris Saint-Germain could only salvage a 1-1 draw with Nice in tonight’s French Ligue 1 fixture.

Neymar scored from the penalty spot in the 60th minute tonight, to give Paris Saint-Germain a 1-1 tie with Nice after Ignatius Ganago scored at the beginning of the second half.

And for PSG’s coach Thomas Tuchel his team “lacked rhythm and desire.”

“At the moment, the matches are a little bit like friendly matches. We are lacking the tension from the earlier matches,” Tuchel told the club’s official website.

“As a result, we are lacking a little speed, rhythm and desire to make the difference. Everyone is realizing that it’s not easy to win every match.”

He added: “We are 11 players and it’s not enough just to step out on to the field wearing the Paris Saint-Germain shirt in order to win.”

“It also proves how well we have worked until now. But it’s true that since the last international break, it has been more difficult for us to play our best football. I am not angry… I’m not satisfied, but I understand what is happening.”

Neymar understands why he was booed

Paris Saint-Germain attacker, Neymar, scored a spectacular winner goal on his return to the club, but he was booed through the whole match.

Angel Di Maria, the PSG forward also said: “The team is still playing with character. We equalized which showed character and we could even have won the match with that second penalty from Edinson Cavani.”

“We have had a lot of injured players recently. Some are returning, Cavani for example. It’s not easy, but we have to stay calm. We only have a few matches left. We know that the fans want us to win, that they want to be entertained, but sometimes it doesn’t happen.”
