UCL: Joe Cole blames four PSG players after defeat to Bayern Munich
Chelsea hero, Joe Cole has blamed four Paris Saint Germain players for their role during their team’s UEFA Champions League round of 16 first-leg 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Bayern Munich defeated PSG 1-0 in Paris, thanks to Kingsley Coman’s only goal of the match.
However, Cole blamed PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma for not being able to save Coman’s strike as he felt the former AC Milan keeper was at fault for the goal.
The former England international also believed PSG’s backline, Sergio Ramos, Presnel Kimpembe and Nuno Mendes, was partially to blame, adding: “[Sergio] Ramos was dragged out and [Presnel] Kimpembe was out of position.
“You talk about the art of defending, it seems to have gone out of the game.
“[Nuno] Mendes needs to be higher. At left-back, I worry about him, seeing that goal, it looks like he loses concentration.”
