Tuchel Wants PSG To ‘Bounce Back’

Tuchel Wants PSG To ‘Bounce Back’

Coach Thomas Tuchel wants his Paris Saint Germain players to move on from their Champions League exit to Manchester United.

The Ligue 1 giants went out of Europe’s elite club competition to the Red Devils on the away-goals rule after Marcus Rashford’s controversial penalty gave Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s men a 3-1 victory on the night at the Parc des Princes.

The French press went overboard in suggesting that PSG were robbed after enjoying the majority of possession against United before suffering the injustice of a late spot kick.

Tuchel admits it has been tough for his men to come to terms with the result, but feels it is now time to draw a line under that competition and focus on Tuesday’s league clash at Dijon.

“The first few days after the loss, the players don’t want to play, but they don’t have any choice. We have to finish the season,” he said.

“You have to know how to accept defeat and keep going. That’s sport. “We have the chance to bounce back like champions, and that’s our challenge, for me and the coaching staff, to push the players each and every day. To play is the best medicine.”
