Luis Enrique insists PSG will ´celebrate´ Ligue 1 title, despite wait for confirmation

SoccerNews in Ligue 1 28 Apr 2024


Luis Enrique insists Paris Saint-Germain are “going to celebrate” winning the Ligue 1 title, despite their third successive domestic crown not quite being mathematically secure.

PSG missed the chance to seal the deal when they were held to a 3-3 draw by relegation-threatened Le Havre, who led 3-1 at one stage at Parc des Princes.

Despite seeing that opportunity go begging, Luis Enrique’s side are 12 points clear of second-place Monaco, who have a game in hand, with three matches remaining.

But the Spaniard knows the job is “effectively” done, with his team needing just one more point and boasting a 29-goal advantage over Monaco.

“Today, we have effectively won the league, given the goal difference, so we are certainly champions – even if we don’t get any more points,” he told reporters at his post-match press conference. “We have a 29-goal advantage, and we are going to celebrate the title.

“It was a strange game in a footballing sense, because our opponents did so little in attack, yet they scored three goals. I don’t think I have ever seen anything like that in my career as a coach.

“They are well drilled and defended well, I must admit, so I congratulate them on that. We deserved to win it from the beginning, but that is football.

“Our fans are incredible. We were losing 1-0, 3-1, and they kept supporting us. It is impossible for the players to stop fighting. We managed to draw later on and effectively win the league thanks to the supporters, and their positive attitude.”
