Luis Enrique: 'Finish the season in the best way possible'

The Paris Saint-Germain coach answered questions from PSG TV and the media before Matchday 34 of Ligue 1 against FC Metz, on Sunday 18 May at 21:00 at the Stade Saint-Symphorien. Excerpts.

match AGAINST Metz

"I hope we play a match similar to the one we played against them at the Parc des Princes this season. They are the team that has the least amount of the bal. They don't need it since they play a lot on the counter-attack. They are a team that defends very well. It will be a difficult match for us. But we want to win to finish the season in the best way possible."

Bradley Barcola

"Bradley can still improve in every aspect. He is a player that I like. One thing that pleases me a lot is that when we sign a young player, it's always very difficult because it's a real challenge for him to establish himself. Thanks to his performances, he will be able to play in the Euros with his country. It's wonderful and well-deserved for him."


"A coach must know how to adapt to the players in his squad. Since the arrival of my staff and myself, we have been working on the most suitable game plan for the team. This summer, there will obviously be tactical changes. We want to have the most balanced team possible. I believe we can improve both defensively and in attack."

the club's evolution

"I believe that when my staff and I arrived, the club had decided to change its style of play by placing more importance on the team. I think we are on the right track and have done good things, but we obviously have room for improvement."

Ligue 1

"It's a much more competitive league than I had heard. By the end of the season, there is a significant gap between first and second place, but this is also due to the higher level of our players. I have been pleasantly surprised by Ligue 1. It's a high-level league with skilled players and coaches. There are very intense matches with a good level of technical and physical play."
