Video: ‘We Cannot Ask for the Same Thing’ – Thomas Tuchel on PSG Reaching Another Champions League Final With No Additional Recruits

With a few days left to go until the transfer window closes, Paris Saint-Germain has yet to make another significant addition to their squad aside from Alessandro Florenzi. 

In his press conference, manager Thomas Tuchel expressed his frustration over the lack of improvement the capital club has done to their side. The German manager uses Liverpool FC, Atlético Madrid, Manchester City, and Inter Milan as clubs in the UEFA Champions League who are improving their squads. 

Tuchel then adds that if the Les Parisiens stand pat and don’t make any more additions, it will be more challenging to return to a final. 

“It’s sport, football, everything is possible. We know that to reproduce the same thing, we must have a little luck during the matches, without having injuries. But if we stay with the same group as today, we cannot ask for the same thing,” Tuchel said.

“Liverpool did not make the Final eight and were able to buy Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota to improve. Manchester City, who lost in the quarter-finals, bought two defenders and Torres from Valencia, Atlético de Madrid now have Luis Suarez, Inter Milan now have two teams capable of playing in the Champions League. These are teams we have to fight with; it’s a big challenge. I’m not saying it’s impossible, but it’s more difficult than last year if we stay like this. And it was already difficult.”
