PSG: “I hope it’s the first of a long series”, relishes Luis Enrique after the Champions Trophy

“My happiness does not depend on the titles I win.” Signed Luis Enrique, Wednesday, at a press conference, after PSG's success against Toulouse (2-0) in the Champions Trophy. His first title since 2017, when he was still at the head of FC Barcelona. “I was super happy with the Spanish national team,” he notes again, he who obviously won nothing during his time at the helm of La Roja, emphasizing that “winning titles depends on the club in which you are. Luis Enrique did not fail to have a thought for his predecessor, Christophe Galtier. “I would like to thank him because he was the one who won the championship last year and it is thanks to this victory that we played in this Champions Trophy,” he greets. He continued: “I am very happy to give joy to our fans. I hope this is the first of many."

To win this cup, the 49th title in the club's history and the 12th in this competition, Paris Saint-Germain produced “an exceptional first half”, says “Lucho”. In fact, Mbappé and company even played “the best first 45 minutes since” the start of the season, before a less successful second period, during which “Toulouse was better and generated scoring opportunities”. Fortunately, Gigio Donnarumma was keeping an eye on things. “He's a guarantee in the goal, that's why it's difficult to be a goalkeeper for a big team because in the first half he only participated once, before having to work a lot more in the second half. I am happy with his performance,” he emphasizes.

Luis Enrique also sang the praises of Vitinha, who has been playing a step lower for a few matches. “It's a slightly different position for him but he was very good,” he analyzes, being much more grating towards Manuel Ugarte, who did not play at all. After a flamboyant start to the season, the Uruguayan midfielder is in tough times. “For me, it was magnificent today, no lost balls, no mistakes, perfect,” quips the Spanish technician. “I want the positions to be doubled so that no one falls asleep,” he adds, believing that everyone must “always progress. This is also the case for Manuel Ugarte. The message got through… The bad note of the evening? Milan Skriniar's injury. “I'm not sure, but it doesn't seem like a minor injury. We expect him to miss the next matches..." laments Luis Enrique, who started Brazilian newcomer Lucas Beraldo for the very first time after the Slovak's exit on Wednesday. A first that calls for others?
