PSG manager Unai Emery has praised the character his men showed to claw back into the game against Nice, overturning a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2.
Second half brace from Edinson Cavani helped the capital club secure the draw, after Nice went ahead in the first half, courtesy of goals from Cyprien and Plea.
The draw sent Nice to the top of the table, with a four points advantage over the current ligue 1 champions, PSG. Emery remains under pressure after failing to secure a win in three fixtures in all competitions
PSG are third in Ligue 1, three points adrift of second-placed Monaco, and Emery said after the match: “This isn’t a good result, but I’m glad of a lot of things. The reaction of the team is important for our morale. They showed me that it is a team with character.
“We will put the frustration behind us and move forward. We deserved to win. We haven’t won the championship but we haven’t lost it.”
Emery refused to criticise Angel Di Maria after the Argentine winger failed to impress against Nice, adding: “I prefer to put my faith in Di Maria rather than reflect on his mistakes.”
