After conceding their one-goal lead in the waning moments to Amiens SC in their Ligue 1 tie on Saturday, Paris Saint-Germain had to remain contented with a 4-4 scoreline at Stade de la Licorne.
However, club manager Thomas Tuchel feels that it was the “lack of concentration” that deprived them of two points.
“We lacked concentration. We were much too distracted, and we didn’t put in the same ingredients as we had done in recent games,”
It were the hosts who led the scoreboard with a 3-0 scoreline by the 44th minute, courtesy Serhou Guirassy, Gael Kakuta and Fousseni Diabate. But a superb comeback from PSG saw them scoring 4 times on the trot before Serhou completed his brace to change the fate of the match.
“It was a little bit crazy today. Amiens shot three times and scored three goals, that made life very difficult for us. We needed three corners to get level, and the fourth goal was magnificent, with some extraordinary passing. We have to accept what happened, not worry about it too much, the reasons are clear, it’s really a lack of concentration,” stressed Tuchel.
