Marco Verratti is a little more in the history of PSG.

We call that doing the job.
Without being brilliant, or even good for that matter, PSG won Saturday night in Angers and temporarily regained the lead in Ligue 1 thanks to a goal from Kurzawa in the second half.
What the goalkeeper Keylor Navas summed up soberly at the microphone of Canal +: "We knew how to suffer when it was necessary to do it, it was a little complicated", he explains, estimating that these are "matches which make strong ”.
We will wait a little longer to see this conclusion, but one month away from Barça, the question of offensive animation and exchanges between Neymar, Mbappé, Di Maria and Kean, all lined up last night, poses a problem.
What did not fail to notice Stéphane Moulin, the trainer of Angers.
“They had put on the big team tonight.
It's difficult to do better, except Kimpembe, he judges.
We were on a level playing field.
I liked the face of my team, we played our luck.
We wanted not to back down, and to harass them as much as possible, especially in midfield.
We felt this evening that if there was one evening (to beat PSG), it was tonight.
They were not very calm.
It's related to us.
There was a real match, without denying us, and we ran into one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
On goal, they have the little bit of success that we do not have.
So much for his analysis, which we gladly share.
In short, there is work for Pochettino and his team, but victory always helps to work calmly.
