In the corridors of Francis Le Blé, Abdou Diallo remained a long time to discuss with Romain Faivre, the Brestois former fan of PSG… Just before, the Parisian central defender agreed to stop for a moment to discuss the qualification obtained this Saturday against Brest (3-0) and also the meeting which now presents itself for Paris: the eighth-final second leg of the Champions League; Wednesday, at the Parc des Princes.
Was this match against Brest a good preparation for the match against Barça?
ABDOU DIALLO. Well, I didn’t take it as a preparation but as a match that had to be won, because it’s the Cup, we have to go to the end too, it’s a competition to be won. It was done.
It’s still ideal because you have the mind libre, right?
Yes, it’s always better to build on victories because you can do it calmly, train in a good mood and not have additional stress and parasitic things. So there we will be able to focus on Barcelona.
How do you see this return match?
I don’t know… It’s a high level team. We negotiated it well in the first leg (4-1). I hope we will do the same when we come back home, it’s important for the supporters so we will prepare and see what happens.
Can’t there be a second remount?
Rhoo… You got us drunk with the windup! It was before, there are new players, it’s totally different. There is no stress about that. We play the game thoroughly, we respect the opponent and we respect ourselves and then we will do the maximum.
