Paris Saint-Germain has yet to find its footing under new manager Luis Enrique. The capital club has a pair of draws in their first two games, with only one goal scored in 180 minutes of action.
So what must improve? Marquinhos already shared his thoughts on what the squad needs to work on, and the latest to reveal their views is Enrique himself. The Spanish boss spoke to PSG TV after the 1-1 draw against Toulouse FC on Saturday at Stadium TFC.
“The game was balanced, contested, and I think we had a good pace for the first 60 minutes,” Enrique told PSG TV (h/t Paris Fans). “The opponent barely approached our goal, and after the goal, we entered a slightly crazier phase of losing control. I know a lot of people don’t like possession of the ball. I love it.
“We need to have even more possession. We need to generate even more scoring chances, and above all, we need to prevent our opponents from creating them. There were 15 or 20 crazy minutes, and there was the penalty. It’s a shame because I think we deserved to win the match, but Toulouse is a team that has a very good structure, that plays good football, and it’s complicated.”
PSG will have a challenging opponent on Matchday 3. They’ll face RC Lens next Saturday at the Parc des Princes. Lens was the runner-up to the Ligue 1 title last season. However, they’re currently in 13th place.
Furthermore, the capital club will have a boost in their attack as they will likely have Kylian Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé for a full 90 minutes.
The 24-year-old has scored the lone goal this season after coming into the game against Toulouse in the second half. As a result, the team will look different next week.
