PSG Star: “‘If we played it 10 times, we would win nine”

Man Utd. victory was a fluke?




Marco Verratti has dismissed Manchester United’s miraculous comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League as a fluke.

Verratti played in both games and was influential in helping PSG to gain a 2–0 lead after the first leg at Old Trafford.

No team had ever advanced in the Champions League after losing the first leg at home before—and with United 10 players short due to injury and suspension victory seemed an impossible task.

But the English side managed to do the unprecedented in Paris.

Romelu Lukaku scored twice in the first half to give United a 2–1 lead on the night, and when United were awarded a last-gasp penalty for handball Marcus Rashford made no mistake from the spot to seal his side’s victory.

Verratti, however, doesn’t think much of the effort.

“Maybe I’m more frustrated than others," the Italian midfielder told Téléfoot. “But football is like that. We can’t have everything.

“The fans are disappointed by the elimination. I’m confident in this team. This match, if we played it 10 times, we would win nine.

“We must not change much. We have a great coach and some of the best players in the world with Neymar and Kylian [Mbappé].”

United are trailing 1–0 to Barcelona after defeat at Old Trafford and are hoping for another comeback going into the Nou Camp.

Do you agree with Verratti?
