A kindNder Herrera (Bilbao, 1989) spent 31 years at PSG after playing for Zaragoza, Athletic and Manchester United. He knows that this year’s Champions League dream can be realized.
What is the difference between Premier and Ligue1?
Ligue1 is very healthy and has almost no control. The game is back and forth. The Prime Minister is similar, it attracts a lot of players from here. The differences are small, but good differences play out well everywhere.
Why does France become the Sambonito of the minor leagues?
It’s not that it looks unfair, or that I kept the data. Lyon is the semi-finalist of the UEFA Champions League, while PSG is the finalist. Lyon eliminated City and Juventus. That team is seventh in the league. In addition to talking about it, I prefer to make the data public.
Does PSG meet expectations?
This surprised me. Before you arrive, you want to get to know your new club. He reads the convulsion news every day. If the Brazilian has a problem with the French, the technicians don’t know who it is, Mbappé doesn’t get along with Neymar… I came here and found a team that meets weekly. The training courses are very good. One of the best friends in the locker room is Mbappé. I don’t know what books he had read at that time, or whether he had been to another place.
Will this be a great year for PSG?
We have made history last year. We won all French competitions. This is unprecedented. We are ranked second in Europe. What seems unfair to me is that at the beginning of each season, PSG is the only team in the world that has the right to win the Champions League. We should not take on responsibilities that other teams do not.
The connection between PSG and Bayern surprised Europe. you too?
Yes, this is probably the best 180 minutes I can remember. You will see tension, concentration and quality… that is a cruel tie. I have a feeling that we eliminated Bayern, who was better than the Lisbon final. He is not as good as the past two games. But we have achieved results. That tie is an ode to football.
