PSG boss pledges to attack United
Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel says his side will not change their style of play despite missing three key players.
Edinson Cavani injured his hip after scoring in a 1-0 win over Bordeaux at the weekend and is ruled out of tonight’s Champions League clash with Manchester United.
Neymar has been missing since breaking a metatarsal on January 23 and faces 10 weeks out, while right-back Thomas Meunier is also ruled out.
‘Would Man Utd miss (Paul) Pogba or (Marcus) Rashford? Of course,’ Tuchel said.
‘Neymar is one of our best players and one of the best players in Europe.
We will miss him a lot.
And now Cavani is out.
‘ But Tuchel said their absence should not change the way PSG play, particularly given they still have one of the best strikers in Europe in their side in the form of Kylian Mbappe.
‘Obviously we’re going to be missing a couple of key attackers, but you don’t change your identity for that reason,’ Tuchel said.
‘We have a tradition, we play attacking football and that is how we’re used to playing – to create chances.
‘It’s in our DNA.
That’s how we play.
To change it is really difficult.’
