“Result was not logical” – claims PSG manager after defeat to Liverpool

Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has stated that his side’s 3-2 defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League was “was not logical or correct”.

The Parisian team were trailing 2-1 at half-time after goals by Daniel Sturridge and James Milner before the World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe equalised in the 83rd minute.

Substitute Roberto Firmino scored a late goal in injury time to grant his side their first win in Group C, which left Thomas Tuchel disappointed as he thought his side deserved to come away with a point.

In a post-match press conference, the German said: “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.”
