Draxler Slams Emery After UCL Exit

share on:

An angry Julian Draxler has hit out at PSG coach, Unai Emery, after his side’s loss to Madrid in the UCL.

Goals from Ronaldo and Casemiro sealed the 2-1 win, as the defending champions won 5-2 on aggregate to advance to the quarterfinals.

Verrati was sent off in the second half, and Draxler was set to be brought on, but Cavani’s equaliser prompted Emery to hold off until the last 14 minutes, before bringing in the Germany international.

“It was insensitive, ” he said of the decision not to bring him on in the aftermath of Cavani’s goal to ZDF. “I didn’t know what was going on. I was surprised and angry.

“The goal for 1-1 went in but it did not change anything for us. I felt we needed to keep pressing and playing offensively.

“We lost a man, and even though we got it to 1-1 the whole stadium knew the game would not turn around because we didn’t have the intensity on the pitch.

“Real Madrid played it out confidently and were not nervous at all.”

“We played the ball back and forth but you cannot score just doing that.

“You have to put pressure on Real Madrid when you are 3-1 down, not just pass it back and forth and hope something falls for you.

“We needed to put pressure on the opponents right from the start. We didn’t do that so we deserved to be eliminated.”
