The best thing to do after a bad defeat is to play a game quickly and win it.
It’s been the comeback plan for endless football teams after poor results, and what PSG would have most liked to do at the weekend was put 10 past a Ligue 1 club.
Instead they had a free weekend and will face Dijon on Tuesday evening.
Last week saw many post-mortems in the french media about PSG’s approach to the Manchester United game and their subsequent Champions League exit at the hands of Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side.
Collective Ultras Paris, the club’s somewhat pampered fan group, released a public letter accusing players of lacking the desire to play for the club.
Sunday was set to be the club’s first open training session since their defeat to Manchester United, and they moved it from Camp des Loges to the Parc des Princes, due to security reasons report L’Equipe.
‘Several hundred ultras’ attended, and the French newspaper explains they were allowed in, as PSG look to ease ‘tensions’.
L’Equipe state: ‘Before the start of the training, the leaders of the fan associations met for half an hour with the men of Thomas Tuchel’
Players such as Thiago Silva and Marquinhos then had to explain the Manchester United defeat, and ‘apologised on behalf of the group’ before ‘listening to the grievances of the ultras’.
After that, the players took to the pitch to train and were met with a chorus of boos and insults.
