PSG Coach Luis Enrique Previews UCL Encounter vs Milan

Luis Enrique is aware of Milan’s stature on the European level, with Paris Saint-Germain set to take on the seven-time UEFA Champions League title holders in a highly-anticipated encounter at Parc des Princes. The Rossoneri are yet to taste a victory after consecutive stalemates, while PSG will look to bounce back following a heavy defeat at Newcastle United.

The former Barcelona coach spoke his mind in the pre-match press conference (via Tuttomercatoweb), giving his insight on one of the matches of the group stages.

“The value of Milan is that it is a great team, always playing in great competitions and, like all clubs, it has ups and downs. In my opinion, Milan are doing very well now. That’s why they say this is the group of death, because everyone can go through.”

Donnarumma’s agent recently blamed Milan for the goalkeeper’s Bosman transfer to PSG, with the EURO 2020 winner now set to take on his boyhood club.

“We all have the opportunity to improve. Before arriving in Paris, I knew that Donnarumma was one of the top goalkeepers in the world, I had already met him as an opponent. Of course, he can improve, professionally and personally. But he is already very strong and I am very happy to have him.”

Enrique was also quizzed if he would take any Rossoneri players into his PSG squad.

“Nobody, because they are Milan players and not PSG’s ones. Milan play with 4-3-3, they know how to do the attacking and defensive phases, but sometimes they change. They did it last year with Tottenham, if I’m not mistaken, and also in the league. We know they are very flexible. We will try to attack in the same way as we do, and possibly adapt to their changes.”

Milan are unbeaten against PSG in four straight UCL clashes, having not met the Parisians in any other competition.
