Paris Saint-Germain has yet to have any luck with managers since the sacking of Thomas Tuchel. The capital club didn’t build a sustainable project under Mauricio Pochettino and Christophe Galtier, so they’ll look to correct any mistakes with Luis Enrique.
After leaving his post as the Spanish national team manager, Enrique didn’t stay unemployed as PSG came calling. Nonetheless, why did the former FC Barcelona boss decide to jump on the job rather than take a hiatus? Well, the 53-year-old hints at the reason.
“Personally, I see the pressure at this level as a privilege, and if you’re not prepared to put up with it, you’d be better off leaving professional football,” Enrique said. “For me, it’s a great advantage.”

The Enrique era at PSG is two matches, and two draws with one goal in 180 minutes. So it’s a slow process, but there are notable changes when watching the capital club that shows the Spanish coach’s influence.
Expect the system to translate to wins now that Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé should be in the starting 11. Furthermore, PSG isn’t done revamping their attack, so goals could be coming soon.
