Speaking after his team’s 1-0 win over Real Madrid tonight, Paris Saint-Germain club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was keen to praise his team’s performance all the while pointing out that they are only halfway through the tie.
His words transcribed in RMC Sport, Al-Khelaifi stated his confidence in the players and manager Mauricio Pochettino to get the job done, with the second leg to come on March 9 in Madrid.
“We had a very, very good game. The players played as a great team. We controlled the game from the first minute to the last, up until the goal. It was a perfect game.”
“We are very proud of the game but we’re only at half-time. I have faith in the players and the coach to keep a cool head. We are ready for the second leg.”
