It’s a shame that we played 40 minutes with one less player, but even at that time we controlled a team that played football and on a difficult field to play. In it. You can never be satisfied with a result like this, you always want to win, but I think you have to congratulate the players. They did a tremendous job!”

After Hakimi’s red card, you had to eliminate an attack item. Why choose Angel Di Maria, who seemed so fair in his moves? And what do you think of the start of the season for Neymar, the most difficult, author of one goal and still difficult tonight?
“We had to make a decision and we took it. It could have been another question, and the question could have been asked as well because another could have been involved. We made that decision thinking of a solution that would make us play right-back Kehrer and three midfielders including Neymar, above the Gana and Danilo. Mbappe and Messi were ahead of them. I am very satisfied with Neymar’s match, he sacrificed a lot for the team. He had just come back from a period of inactivity after playing for Brazil. But I am very happy with his efforts, his participation and good performance will of course come from his good form. “
