Willy Sagnol observes with caution the narrow victory of PSG against Leipzig (1-0).
The former Bordeaux coach regrets the lack of consistency of the Parisian environment, denounces the attitude of Neymar and the lack of automatism in the Parisian game.
How do you analyze the difficult victory of PSG?
Football is in a special situation and there are players at PSG who are not physically at the top like in many other teams in Europe.
But often in the matches where we are less well, it is the system and the animation that allows you to carry you because you have benchmarks, complementarity between players and habits in the game. In Paris, we have the feel that when they are less well, they cannot rely on anything at all.
It is worrying because these physical problems, the PSG will have to do with for several more weeks.
Paris has no DNA, no habits in the game that can get it through difficult matches.
PSG-Leipzig (1-0): the ratings of Parisian players
How to explain that the PSG is so little dangerous?
We have to stop thinking that by putting Di Maria, Neymar and Mbappé at the kickoff, it will go by itself.
This is not true.
These players need players behind them to pass them good balls and to play fast attacks if not placed attacks.
This was not the case today because of a very weak midfielder.
Whether it is Paredes or Herrera, it is really insufficient.
Danilo Pereira is against him for having played a lot and especially with the Portuguese selection and he seems to be physically exhausted.
Which player disappointed you the most?
I don't like to talk about individual situations but we have to focus on Neymar's performance.
He's coming back from injury of course, which begs the question of why he had a round-trip trip to Brazil with all the risks that entails.
But it is above all his behavior on the ground that calls out.
He is always on the ground, in the provocation.
It also reflects on his team.
He has never produced the beautiful football that he is capable of playing.
And in the end, Paris did not create any opportunity in the match.
Paris are happy to score on a generous penalty.
Should we be worried about the European future of Paris?
Already, I do not know in what physical state they will be if they qualify for the round of 16.
But what concerns me are the words of Marquinhos after the match.
I think they are not aware of the poverty of their performance and the concern it arouses.
He speaks of solidarity, but solidarity, these are attackers who come to defend and who go to the pressing, from circles which project forward.
Everything we haven't seen against Leipzig.
The meeting against Manchester will be another game, but in a week it will be difficult to cool off.
In any case, Paris does not advance with more certainty after this victory.
