The Classic between Paris and Marseille did not have the expected intensity on Sunday evening at the Parc des Princes. Thierry Henry did not hide his disappointment afterwards.
Generally outspoken when it comes to giving his opinion on Sunday evening matches in Ligue 1, on the antenna of Prime Video, Thierry Henry did not deviate from his credo this weekend at the end of ‘a PSG–ABOUT closing the 32e championship lift. Like many, the interested party was bored in front of the spectacle offered by the two best teams presumed to be in the elite. Beyond the controversies linked to arbitration.
« I usually do longer, but there, the first thirty minutes, it was soporific for me. Frankly, I almost fell asleep. Already, there was no atmosphere in the stadium. Stocks weren’t terrible. At the end, it was a little better, but it wasn’t terrible at the start… “Said the former Gunner, consultant and assistant coach of Belgium.
Germain: “We football fans were bored”
The numbers don’t lie. With 10 shots attempted over the entire meeting, this Classic will have been the most miserly of the season in this area. Relayed by Le Phocéen, Bruno Germain also did not really taste the quality of the debates: “ It is the weakest classic for a long time in terms of level of play and spectacle. We football fans got bored. I don’t understand Sampaoli’s choices, they don’t serve football. And as often, PSG is disappointing. It only plays in sequence, without a collective… With the means available to PSG, it’s dramatic. »
