Le Parisien report that Argentinian international midfielder Leandro Paredes told the PSG dressing room moments before the start of Wednesday night’s Champions’ League clash with Dortmund that he was on a personal mission to nullify German international Emre Can.
The newspaper claims that Paredes wanted to avenge “tackles on the borderline between being warning-worthy and nasty,” that he adjudged the ex-Juventus man to have made in the 1st leg, notably on Neymar.
He told his colleagues on Wednesday: “We are going to do the same (as him in the 1st leg). Me, I will deal with Can from the off.”
He duly executed his promise, leaving a dig on Can inside the first 5 minutes of the fixture.
