We helped Milan win crazy game: PSG coach Luis Enrique

TRIBAL FOOTBALL – PSG coach Luis Enrique admitted frustration with the manner of their Champions League defeat at AC Milan.
PSG had the lead through Milan Skriniar, but Milan fought back through Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud to win 2-1.
“I liked the way we played, as we scored the first goal and had many other opportunities,” said Luis Enrique in his press conference.
“The only problem is that we helped the game become crazy. It was meant to be a football match, not tennis. It was just end to end, attack against attack. I did not like that.”
“Kylian Mbappé was clear on goal two or three times, so was Ousmane Dembele. After they took the lead, Milan clammed up in defence and it became very difficult. It was a pretty balanced game.
“I saw two fairly similar teams. I prefer more control of the initiative, but it was more end to end.”
On the home barracking of goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma, Enrique also said: “He has a lot of experience, a strong character.
“Football is passion, the fans showed what their position was. The atmosphere can only be like that when there was affection for a player. He had a great game.”
“It’s a pity for us, because if we had won, we’d be practically qualified.”
Elsewhere in Group F, Newcastle’s hopes of reaching the knockout stages were dented as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
