Thomas Tuchel: “This season, we played St Étienne 3 times – they got 3 red cards.”

Speaking to Eurosport after presiding over PSG’s 13th Coupe de France title success via a 1-0 victory over St Étienne at the Stade de France on Friday night, manager Thomas Tuchel had the following to say on the encounter.

“We won, in a final, that’s the most important thing. It was very difficult. We won but we have a lot of things to improve. Aside from that, there were situations with Thilo (Kehrer), Neymar and Kylian Mbappé and that costs us dearly. We have to wait. I don’t have news on Kylian Mbappé. This season, we have played three times against St Étienne, there have been three red cards. And each time, they happen in the first 30 minutes, not at the end of the match when they are tired. Today, it started with Ney and finished with Kylian. Aside from that, we got handed three cards for their foul (Perrin red card)! I really cannot understand that.”
