Emery counters Draxler’s criticism
Julian Draxler voices strong criticism of his coach after the knockout in the royal class. He is now resisting, but he also shows understanding.
After another knockout of Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, Julian Draxler had openly criticised his coach Unai Emery.
Players are not allowed to talk as Draxler has done,”he says,” but they can’t talk like Draxler did. But right after such a game, it’s easier to criticize mistakes than to say something positive that will help the team progress,”Emery said.
Antero told me that his words had been misinterpreted, I believed him,”he said,” but he didn’t speak to Draxler himself, he spoke to sports director Antero Henrique. The players are young and in the heat of battle you sometimes say things you regret afterwards,”the Spaniard also showed understanding for Draxler.
The international had been annoyed after the 2-1 defeat by the fact that he had been sent back after he had already prepared for his replacement.
“That was insensitive. I didn’t quite understand. The 1:1 went down, but that didn’t help us,”Draxler criticized the PSG coach’s decision on ZDF.
Team-mate Thiago Motta, however, had defended Emery,”Our coach is doing a top job. Today we wanted to get the opponent into trouble, but we didn’t succeed. But that wasn’t because of the coach, but rather because of Real Madrid’s class,”Motta said.
