Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has slammed his team’s arrogance following their shock loss to Guingamp on Wednesday.

Les Parisiens hosted Guingamp at the Parc Des Princes in the quarter-final of the Coupe de la Ligue, suffering a shock 2–1 loss after two goals in the final ten minutes for the visitors.

Tuchel took exception to his team ’s over-confidence, insisting it was the catalyst of their shock Coupe de la Ligue exit at the hands of Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men.

“I do not know if it’s deserved, we had a lot of chances,” Tuchel said of the loss in an interview with Canal+.

“We played honestly with too much confidence. It’s hard to lose this match with three penalties. It’s a bit weird.”

“The second seems questionable. There was nothing [there], it is a [normal] contact between the two players. They entered our box three times and won three penalties.”

As time goes by it becomes more apparent that Philippe Coutinho may not have a future at Barcelona.

“We didn’t play with the necessary hunger. We lost the possibility of winning a trophy tonight.”

“But in each defeat, there are things you can learn. It’s hard, but it’s necessary to keep growing, I hope it’s just an accident.”

“We have to play with more consistency, we didn’t put the right ingredients in. We were too relaxed.”
