“We lost points for our fault, it’s true, Tuchel recognized again. But we will fight until the end. I am convinced that we will end up champions ”, he assured after the Parisian victory against Strasbourg (4-0), adding: “It’s a complicated season with the coronavirus, the calendar, the injuries… We have to accept it, we thought it could happen. But we should not take the lead. We are very close to the first place. “
The Parisian coach is nevertheless worried about the frantic pace that awaits PSG at the start of the school year. “We have nine, ten days of vacation to rest mentally and physically. It won’t be 9-10 days totally off as there will be a workout schedule to follow. But it’s 10 days with the family, at home…, he first explained. But I am worried because we will find a high rhythm in January and February. Not all players will be ready on January 3 for the resumption, nor for the matches of 6, 9… We will replay every three days. “
