Unai Emery has called on Marco Verratti to learn from his Champions League red card against Real Madrid.
Verratti has been widely criticised following his dismissal for haranguing the referee in the last-16 second leg, as PSG crumbled to a 5-2 aggregate defeat.
But Emery is confident Verratti can bounce back.
“[Verratti] must learn from his experiences, both the positive and negative,” Emery told a pre-match news conference ahead of Wednesday’s game with Angers.
“He has a lot of character, a temperament. We have talked with him about it many times. He has been frustrated in some games.
“He is the future of PSG and knows that he must improve. He is an important player in the project.”
