Tonight, was it the mind that mainly allowed PSG to win
Yes, I think the team responded to adversity with character, a good mentality. They wanted to win and there are many ways to win. Tonight it was in pain, with the mind. Sometimes it’s through play.
How do you explain the difference between the first sixty minutes and the rest? Is it the mind or the tactical change?

I think the problem is that Lille have very fast transitions. For sixty minutes, they gave us problems in the transition. We couldn’t control the game at that point. Then I think we managed to give the team security to engage and attack with more freedom.
Why did you take Messi out at the break?
This is a precaution in agreement with the medical staff. He should be available for Wednesday’s game in Leipzig.
This is not the first time that PSG have won matches in the last five minutes thanks to the individual talent of their players.
No, it’s not just individual, it’s collective thanks to better defensive control so that the team attack in a better way and are not hampered by the Lille transitions.
Is 3-5-2 a real solution for the future?
No, that’s one more option, to be flexible and to be able to change things during the game. In every game, we have a plan. This one works or not and then we have to adapt. We have 35 players and each can contribute depending on the progress of a meeting. Over time, we will be more and more flexible.
How do you improve to make the matches easier from the start?
There are always things to improve and we are working for that. But the most important thing is to win and tonight we won.
