Why We Lost To Liverpool – PSG Coach, Thomas Tuchel



Paris Saint-Germain coach, Thomas Tuchel has explained why his side was defeated 3-2 against Liverpool in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League clash played at Anfield Stadium.

Goals from Daniel Sturridge, James Milner, and Roberto Firmino ensured victory for the Reds as goals from Thomas Meunier and Kylian Mbappe were not enough to get a point for the visitors.

Tuchel, however, said his side lost to Jurgen Klopp’s men because his players gave away the ball too easily during the second half of the encounter.

He also praised his players for putting in a great performance during the first half of the match, adding that the ‘result was not logical or correct’.

“Maybe the score didn’t tell the story of the game,” Mirror UK quoted Tuchel as saying at post-match.

“Right at the end, we had the chance with Julian Draxler that could have won it before Liverpool scored.

“We put in a great performance in the first half. For me, the result was not logical or correct.

“We conceded two goals in the first half but never at any point did we lose our confidence.

“We played with a lot of bravery and mental strength. Maybe in the second half we gave the ball away too easily but this is Anfield, Jurgen Klopp has worked with his team for three years, Liverpool press you and make it hard. But we never lost our shape.

“Through our efforts we managed to get the equalising goal. But the end was very, very tough.”
