After the match, Thilo Kehrer spoke to PSG TV, where Canal Supporters relayed his comments regarding the loss to Lille in Trophée des Champions.
“I think we dominated the game, but we didn’t manage to create any real chances, and we didn’t score. We fished in the finish. We worked well during the preparation; we feel good physically, there are other things that need to be improved,” Kehrer said.
“But physically, I think we are fine. They were realistic and also defended very well. But we could have found more space, created more chances, in the end, we are disappointed, we wanted to win this trophy, but we have to keep working.”
