It’s a bit hard to digest an injury, ”he breathed on Thursday as part of a media point.

I will do everything to be in the twenty-three (selected by Thomas Tuchel, editor’s note), ”adds the Italian midfielder with a unique profile within the Parisian collective. An old man of the workforce now who relishes this outcome. “It’s an incredible feeling. I’ve been here for eight years. This year, we had a fabulous journey. We have 90 minutes left, important in our footballing history and that of the club. “

It’s very hard to get there. It’s nice to be in the final but there are 90 minutes left. We don’t want to stop there. First of all, we have to prepare it well and then we will try to play at our best level. “
