Tuchel: 'Winning is never easy!'

On the eve of the Week 21 Ligue 1 clash at home to Guingamp, this Saturday at 17:00 at the Parc des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel spoke to the media at the traditional pre-match press conference:

"Kimpembe is the only player still missing. He can run and sprint, but he still can't shoot or pass long, so he can't train with us. It's a shame because we need him. He is the only left-footer in our central defence... but we have to be patient because he has to be 100% before he starts training. That's the most important thing. I have to speak with the doctor, but I think the rest of the squad will train today, Friday and be available for Saturday's game."

"We want to win, that's our objective. But everyone knows that it won't be easy, that it's never easy, but we will try to win on Saturday. We will play with our best team and then make some changes in the coming matches."

"The Qatar Tour went very well. We did a lot of things, a lot of marketing, but also a lot of training of a very high standard. The pitches and facilities were extraordinary, incredibly good, and that gives us a lot of options. My win in the camel race? Papus (assistant coach Zoumana Camara), our camel owner and coach Moubarak, who also drove our car, and I made a great team. There was a great atmosphere in our car. THat explains why we went on to win."

"Thiago Silva is a massively important player. He's an incredible person. He is always happy to be at training, every day. He's the first won in the gym, the last to leave... He's a player of the highest level... At training, he always wants to win every activity. He has an exceptional personality and mentality. He feels good, confident and he's a leader. I have a great relationship with him. He's a model for all the others."
