Video: Tuchel Puts the Blame on Himself When It Comes to the Kimpembe Injury

Matchday 16 was featured a battle for first place atop the Ligue 1 table as Lille OSC welcomed Paris Saint-Germain to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. The matchup led to a scoreless draw as the capital club falls back down to third place with 32 points.

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel spoke to the media after the 0-0 draw where L’Equipe relayed his words.

One of the first questions that the German tactician answered was over the heroics of Presnel Kimpembe, who made a goal-saving tackle at the 79th minute.

“Yes, it was the only time we lost the structure to control the opposing counter-attacks. It was also my fault because I had made changes before a corner. I am also responsible for that because he was injured after this action,” Tuchel said. 

“We were excellent because it was the only counter-attack of the match against one of the best teams in Europe in this area. We have good control over that in the game.”
