PSG Manager Vows to Bounce Back After Champions League Setback Against Barcelona

Despite suffering a 2-3 defeat at home to FC Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinal, Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique remains optimistic about his team’s chances in the competition.

Enrique expressed confidence that PSG can turn the tide in the next leg against the Spanish side and advance to the next round.

PSG, still in pursuit of their first Champions League title, surrendered a 2-1 lead late in the second half during Wednesday’s match against Barcelona. Despite dominating for much of the game, PSG couldn’t capitalize on their opportunities.

Enrique refrained from commenting on Kylian Mbappe’s performance, acknowledging Barcelona’s solid defense that effectively contained the French captain.

The Spanish manager, who previously achieved a treble with Barcelona in 2015, emphasized that PSG deserved to win and rejected the notion that Barcelona holds a significant advantage going into the return leg.

“We are prepared to engage in a battle in Barcelona,” Enrique stated emphatically. “I never consider the opposition as favorites, regardless of their stature. In elite competitions, I maintain the belief that we can emerge victorious.”

He added, “We had the potential to win this match. Football often hinges on minor details, and we remain hopeful that these details will work in our favor in the upcoming leg.”
