Paris St Germain technical director Patrick Kluivert has said that beating Barcelona 4-0 in the 1st leg of their Champions League last 16 tie was an impressive feat, saying his team will defend in Camp Nou.
Kluivert watched PSG dismantle his former side Barcelona on Tuesday to all but book their place in the quarter-finals. However, the former striker isn’t getting carried away.
Kluivert said,” We are really happy with our victory. We also know that anything can happen in Camp Nou but if we play like we did tonight it will be very difficult for FC Barcelona.
“You cannot just make a case to state that FC Barcelona did not play well tonight. We played well and we know that they can play a lot better. It’s a shame for them but that is football and that is life.
“We created great chances tonight and we could have scored more goals but we are satisfied and we will stay grounded.”
Kluivert also added on Barcelona, “Messi, Suarez and Neymar are not robots they are people just like you and me and they cannot perform every game. These things happen and it’s a shame for FC Barcelona that it happened tonight. As far as I am concerned Lionel Messi is still enjoying his football in Barcelona “
