Draxler says he’ll be happy to face Manchester United with Paul Pogba on the bench ahead of next month’s UEFA Champions League second leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
Pogba was sent off before the end of the Manchester United’s 2-0 first-leg loss at home to PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday, meaning he will miss the second leg.
“For me Paul is the best player of Manchester United,” Draxler said. “He’s a very important player for the team and you could see he is fantastic [on Tuesday]. That is why we are very happy he will not play the second leg. I think they started very well so the pressure was not easy for us, but in the second half we were more confident and the pressure of Man United was a little bit less. That helped us to improve our game so we found some space on the pitch and we used that very well and that is why we deserved to win.”
Can Man. Utd. beat PSG without Pogba? 🙁
