Paris Saint-Germain ended their 2021 calendar year on a whimper as the capital club trailed most of the match against an FC Lorient side who is battling relegation and needed a late goal to salvage a point.
Despite the 1-1 draw, the match felt like a loss, and there was plenty of criticism to go around. French football pundit Daniel Riolo spoke on After Foot RMC, where he didn’t hold back his remarks regarding PSG’s tactical approach.
“PSG is the flagship team of our league. Honestly, other than beating them, there is nothing to say about the game! Technically and tactically, there is nothing! We are in the presence of players who do not care! PSG supporters in front of their television facing their team, I wonder what they can think!” Riolo said.
“We have the impression that they are not giving a damn about us. Midfielders with Wijnaldum, one has the impression that he never arrived (…) It is lamentable! The team has been dismal tonight! And this is not circumstantial (…) We have seen that since the start of the season!”
🗣️💬 Riolo à propos du PSG : "Honnêtement, à part leur taper dessus, il n'y a rien à dire. Techniquement, tactiquement il n'y a rien. Tu es en présence de joueurs qui n'en ont rien à cirer." pic.twitter.com/o4JUg3g02x
