Monaco did not repeat their performance on Sunday (3-3), Wednesday, dropping dryly at home against PSG (1-4). For some players, this match was distorted by an arbitration decision just before the break. M.Letexier’s decision to award a penalty for Kamil Glick’s negligible foul on Layvin Kurzawa was not digested, since it was not studied by the video assistants. Neymar transformed the penalty and Paris made the break (0-2 at halftime).
Henrichs regrets the penalty
“It was too hard, but I also think that we made a mistake on the first goal, recognized Benjamin Henrichs, Monegasque right back. But the second goal, I looked. For me there is never a penalty. What puts us in a position where Paris leads 2-0 at half time is complicated. We gave 100% but unfortunately it was not enough. “
“The referees are doing the best they can”
Asked about this game, Robert Moreno had very classy words when playing the appeasement. “I have nothing to say about the referee or the VAR,” he said. “They are doing the best they can. I don’t control that. I’m only working on what I can try to control.”
Appointed to replace Leonardo Jardim, the Spaniard preferred to analyze the meeting and draw positive results. “I am very happy and proud of my team, he said. We continued to do what I said for 95 minutes. The results are different from Sunday, but we suffered three counter attacks and one We attacked with the sides. We only stayed with two central. At the end, at 3-1, we took risks. But if we score the 2nd, the mental situation can change and the last minutes can be The team was physically ready. The difference was that on Sunday we were precise and that Kaylor (Navas, the Parisian goalkeeper) had a great game tonight. The game plan was to close the spaces, to protect our goal. We did not have the quality to recover the ball. Placed thus in defense, Paris had little opportunity. All the opportunities were against. But for me, losing 4-1 thus, vis-a-vis great team is football. The reaction of the team to keep scoring until the end is the way to become a great team. ”
