Thomas Tuchel insists PSG deserve Champions League semi-final. “We certainly will not forget this day and we deserved to go through.”
Tuchel insists PSG ‘absolutely deserved’ to reach the Champions League semi-final and he ‘never got the feeling we wouldn’t score’ against Atalanta.
La Dea were leading up until the 89th minute thanks to a Mario Pasalic curler. But Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in stoppages to turn it all around.
“Today was the 50th birthday of the club. So a game like this, on such an historic occasion, having already won four trophies this season and now into the semi-final…” Tuchel told RMC Sport.
“We certainly will not forget this day.”
Despite the difficulties they had against an Atalanta side put together for less than it cost to just sign Kylian Mbappé, Tuchel was always confident.
“I never got the feeling we wouldn’t score a goal eventually. I even told my assistants, once we get one, I’m sure we’ll score a second straight away.
“We played a very, very good match and our qualification for the semi-final is absolutely deserved. Naturally, there was also a bit of luck, but if you watched the whole game, we deserved to go through.
