Paris Saint-Germain star Idrissa Gueye has claimed it was “simple” to defend against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Both Gueye and Lionel Messi netted to hand the Parisians a 2-0 win on Tuesday night.
After the game the former Everton man explained how they made defending against City simple, despite their dominance of the Premier League.
“The most important thing is to remain solid,” Gueye told RMC Sport.
“It wasn’t an easy match and we were able to defend well, play on the counter and get opportunities. We were able to score, and now we need to concentrate on the next game.
“We had to stay compact in the middle and make the most of our counters to score.
“Today it was simple to defend because they didn’t have a lot of pace.
“The most important thing is the entire team’s performance. We had to win after the draw in Bruges.
“We attacked as a team, we defended as a team. Now we need to prepare the next match well.”
