Bakker scores points at Paris Saint-Germain: ‘I am satisfied with him’


There is a chance that Mitchel Bakker will kick off in eleven days in the quarterfinals match against Atalanta Bergamo in the Champions League. The twenty-year-old Dutchman is the stand-in of Juan Bernat, who is still recovering from an injury.

Bakker has shown himself well at PSG in recent weeks. Tuchel hopes that he can appeal to Bernat against Atalanta again. “I really hope so, but I am very satisfied with Mitchel,” said Tuchel at the press conference after the cup final win against Olympique Lyon. “He has the physical qualities to hook on. It is not easy for him, because there is a lot of pressure. There is always a need to win, but he shows that he can do it.”

Nevertheless, Tuchel hopes to have access to the experienced Bernat in the Champions League. “In the Champions League he is decisive. He has the qualities to play out under the pressure. Juan is an extraordinary player. Unfortunately he is not here yet, because he is recovering from an injury.”
