Verratti: 'We're not thinking about Atalanta'

Marco Verratti has claimed Paris Saint-Germain 'aren't thinking about Atalanta yet’ and only focus on the Coupe de la Ligue Final against Olympique Lyonnais.

PSG, who have already won Ligue 1 and the Coupe de France this season, are preparing for another Final against Lyon before playing Atalanta in the quarter-finals of the Champions League next month.

The Italian midfielder didn’t want to lose focus ahead of tomorrow’s Final and avoided the question regarding the upcoming match against the Orobici.

“We are not thinking about that game yet, the most important match is tomorrow,” Verratti said at a press conference. “We are happy to play against Lyon, they are an excellent team.”

During the Coupe de France Final last week, PSG lost Kylian Mbappe to an injury and Verratti admitted ‘any team would miss a player like him’.

“We thought of him when we raised the trophy, but injuries are part of being a football player,” the Italy international added. “We will miss him. Any team would miss a player like him.”
