After the meeting, the Leipzig coach was disappointed with the result but not with the way.
Your feeling on this match …
“Our game plan worked well, we played very well. But as soon as we led, we made too many easy mistakes and in the end we maybe deserved this defeat. But we must congratulate our team because it is a step forward for us. “
Why did Emile Forsberg not play?
“Emile played a lot with his national team and we felt that we needed some freshness but when he came home it was too late. “
Some of your players released a really big game …
“It’s often very difficult to play in the Champions League against the biggest teams. It’s difficult to receive warnings from the referees but I don’t want to talk about the referee because we also made a lot of mistakes. But we played a big game. Laimer was huge, the same for Orban or Mukiele. On the pitch Nkuku was the best player, as were Messi and Mbappé. “
Not to miss
What is the condition of your players? Is your goal the Europa League now?
“We had a few injuries: Klostermann took a strike on the thigh just like Haidara so it costs us. Today we can say that it will be difficult to fight to get out of this group stage, the Europa League must be a goal. It’s good because Bruges lost. We also have to do two good results at home and beat Brugge. “
Why did you decide to field this team which was very young?
“We had a very young team with a very daring composition. Opposite, there are experienced players who compete in all the major competitions. To beat them, you had to do the perfect performance. But we were able to control the spaces, attack the right spaces, do the right thing at the right time and we had a fairly high ball possession here in Paris. It was good but not enough. “
