Watching Carlo Ancelotti’s teams was an inspiration to me.”Tuchel also revealed which players are possibly going to miss the match due to injuries: “Thiago Silva did not train this morning [Tuesday], we have another one [session] tomorrow but it will be a test,” he added.“[Verratti] trained today and that’s important because he had a muscular discomfort against Amiens. He trained without problems. It’s a special match for him because I think and I see that he loves Ancelotti.”PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.About the inclusion of the attacking quartet that PSG has, Tuchel added: “In this competition, the effort must come from everyone.”“We have an amazing team and players too. We are in a big club, a big city but we do not have a big experience in the Champions League. We are not used to reaching the last four and that’s why it’s so hard to improve in the Champions League.”“The four players are very important to us but we have to play as a team.”📈⚽ Pre-game stats ahead of #PSGNAP ⚡🔴🔵 #ICICESTPARIS pic.twitter.com/KyESH8jbzf— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 23, 2018last_img
