Paris Saint-Germian defender Daniel Alves has claimed that the club needs to take his advice into consideration as he has enormous experience playing at the top level if they are to ever win the Champions League.
The French champions were knocked out of the Champions League once again, this time by Manchester United, even though they had a two goal lead going into the second leg at the Parc de Princes.
Alves has expressed his frustration that the club has repeatedly failed to reach the next level, and has implied that those at the club do not know what it takes to win top competitions.
“You have to listen to the experience, I want to be listened to more,” Alves told RMC Sport, according to Goal. “I know what can pull us up. I have experienced it. I have the feeling that people don’t know in the club. I know how we win, and how we lose. I’d like to be followed, to be listened to, because I’ve already gone through it.”
“For everyone, it was an unpleasant surprise, but I had warned, the historical club was Manchester, you have to be careful in this competition,” Alves said. “The Champions League, like in tennis, the story will always be against you. Whatever the situation, it’s up to us to make our story, We have to create it, that’s my feeling. We missed this point – the idea that we were going to war.”
It remains to be seen if PSG can step up next season, with yet another season resulting in failure to even reach the Champions League finals, let alone win the competition.
