Although he could be crowned champion of France in 2018-2019 by winning in front of his audience, Paris Saint-Germain eventually missed the boat held in check by a brave team of RC Strasbourg (2-2, 31st day of League 1) . On the sidelines of this draw, Thiago Silva, 34-year-old central defender and captain of Paris, spoke on the official website of Paris. It emphasizes the great setback of the Alsatian and the arrival of Kylian Mbappé, a 20-year-old striker, who could have changed everything.
"Strasbourg defended well, also counteracted well. The first period was complicated. We started the game well, but then we made technical mistakes and refused this goal. We failed to score the second goal and we take a new goal The second period was better, Kylian (Mbappé) made a very good start, I congratulated him. In the second period we deserve to be champions, but we will now work to be in Lille »said Thiago Silva.
A coronation that will wait …
We are not going to hide, the meeting of this Sunday evening was extremely disappointing. When we subsequently adjusted the composition to Thomas Tuchel, we suspected that the show would not necessarily go to the rendezvous. For their part, the people of Strasbourg played their game and turned their counterattack into reality. The second half of which Silva speaks was also not famous, even if the entry of Kylian Mbappé did well. There were still enough chances to win, but not enough efficiency. The greatest concern remains at the end of the first period.
The coronation is therefore unfortunately rejected, which is a shame. We hope that the German technician will get his offensives back soon, because the rest of the season can take a long time. Everything will now be to endorse the title on the lawn of the Lille dolphin next week. And especially to go to the Coupe de France on April 27 against Stade Rennais. The Paris team can be much better armed if everything goes well.
