In the third and final friendly before the pivotal Coupe de France final, Paris Saint-Germain notched another dominant performance with a 4-0 win over Celtic FC.
As usual, both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe provided for exquisite showings as they each logged a goal. Ander Herrera also chipped in with a goal as he scored early in the second half to put PSG up 3-0. Following the contest, he spoke to Bein Sports (via Culture PSG) on the victory and the team’s mindset heading into the first of two key cup finals.
“I think we can be very satisfied, we played well, with a lot of intensity,” Herrera said. “Not only today but also against Le Havre and Beveren, we respected the opponent a lot. It is our subject to tackle all the matches. Now we have a very important game for the club as we lost the final last year. We are ready to play and to try to win all the titles possible.”
Herrera also spoke about his role with the team. While he is not a regular starter for manager Thomas Tuchel, he aspires to contribute as much possible and help the team succeed.
“Yes, but I am a team player, a player who is ready to help the team or the coach,” Herrera said. “I came to play for the biggest club in France and one of the biggest in Europe. I am ready to help. The most important thing is health and being available every day. This is what I worked a lot for during the lockdown and I am delighted to be here. It’s the truth.”
Next up for PSG is the Coupe de France final against AS Saint-Etienne later this week.
