He wore the jersey of both clubs between 1990 and 1992 and did not miss a crumb of the clasico won without shining by PSG. The former international midfielder (13 caps), Bernard Pardo, gave us his feelings at the end of the meeting.
Do you think the victory of PSG is logical?
BERNARD PARDO. Not entirely. In the Marseille camp, there can be a certain frustration, even if, at this level, such naivety does not forgive. Paris was able to place an express counter to open the scoring and then put themselves in the best position for the rest of the match.
Were you convinced by the Parisian service?
I was a little unsatisfied. If you put Mbappé and Icardi in Marseille, the result is reversed. Paris has first-rate attackers, when Marseille, in the absence of Milik, did not weigh enough in the box. That’s all the difference. She’s a big one. But PSG will have to raise their level of play so as not to expose themselves to problems against Barcelona in the Champions League. The Catalans come back very strong and their stars are in full revival. These are parameters to be taken into account. Barça can hurt Paris a lot.
Do you find Paris less domineering this season in Ligue 1?
Of course, there is more competition with Lille, Lyon and even Monaco. These three clubs rely on quality staff and they keep pace. In addition, OL do not have a European Cup. Paris will have to be vigilant to keep its title. They will not be champions in an armchair.
What is your take on Marco Verratti’s game?
It is neither a 6 nor a 10. It is a free electron. He is able to distill very good balloons. Technically, he is still above the rest and he is never stingy with his efforts.
Apart from the Italian, who were for you the other outstanding players of this clasico?
In Marseille, I really liked Kamara and Gueye in the midfield. They have collected a lot of balls and show daring in their football. In Paris, Mbappé is not very far from his best level and Icardi remains a sacred scorer. It is especially necessary to underline the reassuring presence of Marquinhos, it is the stabilizing element.
