Champions trophy: PSG 2-1 Bordeaux

PSG two goals in the last 10 min with the last second win, Alex at the 94th. PSG’s reactions

Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
“It was a really difficult match against a Bordeaux that we have a lot of respect for. In the first half we really struggled to put our chances away and then we conceded the opening goal. Then in the second half we dug really deep and got an equaliser and then the winning goal. Every team that plays Paris is very, very motivated. You have to pay tribute to Bordeaux who really played well and gave themselves every chance in the match. This match is a good example of what we will experience this season. We showed that Paris Saint-Germain isn’t only a team of stars, but that we also have some very talented youngsters. Preseason training was very difficult, we worked very hard and we didn’t get all our players back in training until late in the picture. Winning matches will help us prepare for the rest of the season.”

Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper)
“It was really tough because we had prepared for this match to make a strong start to the season. When you are playing well and dominating a match, you have to be able to kill it off. We lacked the final touch on our set pieces in the first half. Anyone can concede silly goals, that’s what happens in football. In the end, we won the match and our first trophy and that’s the best way to start our new season. We know it will be tough next Friday against Montpellier.”
