Thomas Tuchel hints at Manchester United tactical change

1 min read

Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has hinted his side will ‘defend low’ when they visit Manchester United in the Champions League next week.

The French champions head into the match at Old Trafford knowing only a win will do if they are to stay in control of their own qualification hopes for the knockout stages of the competition.

PSG had the worst possible start to Group H earlier this year when they lost 2-1 to United in the opening match day, with Tuchel’s side emphatically outplayed at the Parc des Princes.

Tuchel insists his current focus is on the Ligue 1 meeting with Bordeaux this weekend, but he knows he must get his tactics spot on for the trip to face United next Wednesday.

“The hardest part will be finding eleven players who have the physical impact to give,” Paris Supporters report him saying after the game.

“These are important things. We are thinking of the match before against Bordeaux; we will prepare the match and a plan against Manchester then.

“If the players feel better, if it’s easier for them, we can play a better game.

“We will do what is necessary, but I have confidence. If we still have to defend low, we will.”
