Luis Enrique: "An exceptional transfer window"

The Paris Saint-Germain coach answered questions from PSG TV and the media ahead of his side's Ligue 1 Matchday 4 clash with Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday 3 September at 8.45pm at the Groupama Stadium.


"Lyon are a very strong opponent, with a lot of individual quality. We don't really know how they're going to defend and press. It will be a very good match to show our intentions. I've prepared for this match like all the others, with the utmost professionalism. More generally, in all competitions I always prepare the matches according to our needs. I look for maximum possession from our side. After that, you need to know how your opponents are going to play when you don't have the ball. So we study that."


"We saw his level at Frankfurt and with the French national team. He's a player who can play in all positions in attack. I like players who can play in different positions. He can play in the box or out wide. He's a great addition for us, he's French and he reinforces the club's identity."


"He'll be in the squad. He's a good signing for us, not just because of his youth, but also because of his playing ability. He can dribble down the wing and is very good without the ball. He can play as a number nine. I really like what he has to offer, he's a player for the future."

Transfer window

"Of course I'm very satisfied! It's been an exceptional transfer window, and I'd like to thank the President and Luis Campos for all their hard work. It's hard to have a better window! All my requests have been met and every position has been strengthened. Now it's up to the players and staff to restore the confidence the club has shown in them. These conditions are perfect for a coach. Now it's a question of who deserves to play."


"It's a difficult group, but it's also exciting and very challenging. The Champions League is the best. Every team is a challenge. It's the most exciting group in the competition, without a doubt. It's going to be very challenging. But if anyone's unlucky, it's not PSG, it's everyone else!"
