Florenzi Urges PSG To Be Ruthless In Attack With ‘Extraordinary Players’ Neymar, Mbappe

Paris Saint-German new right-back, Alessandro Florenzi, has described the duo of Neymar and Kyrian Mbappe as ‘extraordinary players’ who can propel the team’s attacking force to become ruthless and score more goals.

The 29 year old Italy international. who arrived PSG this summer on €1million loan deal untill end of June 2021, has played three of the Thomas Tuchel’s men’s five Ligue 1 games in the new season.

The champions are currently seventh in the 2020/2021 Ligue 1 table on nine points from five games.

As PSG prepare to welcome Angers at Parc des Princes on Friday without Angel di Maria who will miss four games through suspension for a spitting misconduct during their 2-0 away win against Reims at Stade Auguste-Delaune, Florenzi bares his mind on the way forward for the team.

Despite winning 2-0 against Reims, Florenzo agrees with head coach, Tuchel, that the team could have scored more with better finishing. And the defender believes that Neymar and Mbappe can effective inspire more clinical finishing against their opponents.

“We had plenty of chances against Reims and it could have been 4-0 or 5-0 at half-time,” Florenzi told journalists during Friday’s pre-match press conference.

“We could have put the game to bed straight away and we certainly need to be more clinical up front.

“At the same time, we have to continue on the same path because if you get four or five chances in the first half an hour it means you
are playing well.”

He added: “Neymar and Kylian are extraordinary players, two of the best in the world. We also have other great players like Di Maria and Marquinhos at the back.

“It is easy to play with Angel because of his quality and the way we link up, but there are other players who can also contribute to the team, like Draxler and Ander Herrera.

“So we have many players. Their attributes might be difficult or different to Angel’s, but they will be the right level to come in.”

Florenzi would also respond to a question about his debut for PSG when they lost their matchday-1 home game 1-0 to Marseille in which five players were sent off after players clashhed during the stoppage time. Florenzo was early issued a yellow card.

“Given the way things went, it certainly wasn’t a good example set for French football,” Florenzi remarked.

“But having said that, there have also been unpleasant situations in Spain and Italy as well. What we have to do is get people talking about what we do on the pitch.

“We want to be an example to children and offer a different image of ourselves. That is what we will be looking to do going forward.”
