Paris Saint-Germain manager, Thomas Tuchel, has warned his returning stars, that they will have to earn their place in his team, after a 3-0 win over Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were seen watching the game at the Parc de Princes from the stands, with the Frenchman out injured and the Brazilian serving the first of his two-game suspension.
With Edinson Cavani also out injured, Tuchel’s side impressed without their big-name players, as Angel Di Maria netted a brace before Thomas Meunier added a third in injury-time.
“I’m very happy with the whole team because it was really difficult, we had a lot of chances, but there were also some stages for Real where we suffered.
“But we stayed structured, always blocked, tight, aggressive and compact, really, it was a complete performance.
“Mbappe and Neymar saw the match, and they have to do what the others did on their return.
“That’s good, we are happy to have such a team, which was not always the case. We can make a good team match without our stars, and it’s absolutely necessary. I have to make tough decisions, but it’s good, the competition must be like that in a club like PSG,” Tuchel told RMC Sport.
