Tuchel: 'Stay focused'
Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel spoke to the media at the traditional pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's Week 9 Ligue 1 match versus Angers, at 17:30 at the Parc des Princes:
"Thilo Kehrer, Julian Draxler and Colin Dagba are out, and so is Kylian Mbappé. He is not really injured, because it's not a new injury, but the scar tissue is very close to a nerve and it has caused a reaction. We will take the time to treat that. Thomas Meunier and Edinson Cavani trained on Thursday. We will see how they go today to make a decision for tomorrow's game."
"They are a good team, a team that gives nothing away. They have won a lot of matches and scored a lot of goals which means they are full of confidence. It will be important to prepare well, pay attention to all the little details and stay focused. Angers are second in the standings and it promises to be a great match. They are a balanced team, very strong on the counterattack and deserve their 16 points. It will be a very difficult match. Angers really play as a team and never give up. Their confidence is high. We will have to play with intensity."
"Presnel is ready to play with the national team. I'm happy he has been called up. He deserves it. He has worked very hard for ten or 12 weeks, he was very professional to get back to his current level, both physical and mental. I am very happy. His big challenge is to stay at this level."
