Coach, will Zlatan Ibrahimovic play his first match for Paris Saint-Germain this weekend?
"Yes, Ibra will play about 30 minutes and will start the match. He has trained well and joined us in very good physical condition. Ibra is a winner, including in training and that explains his commitment. He has settled very well in the squad. He will play with Gameiro and Menez in attack in a 4-3-3. The whole squad will participate in the match. Ibra will wear the number 18 for this match."
What do you think of the one-match ban given to Ménez?
"Jérémy Ménez was a little frustrated during this match of the Euro. He has been suspended for one match by his Federation, that's the way it is. We haven't spoken about it. He made a mistake and received a one game penalty. By the way, Ménez is one of the players that could be captain of Paris Saint-Germain this season, but I will make my final decision ahead of PSG v Barca."
Are you happy with your training camp in the USA?
We have got through the entire program scheduled for the camp in Princeton. We still have two weeks work at the Camp des Loges in Paris after this game against DC United. But yes, overall I'm very happy with what we've achieved."
Finally, the only real negative in this pre-season is the injury to Momo Sissoko...
"He is receiving treatment in Doha and will join up with the squad ahead of the Barcelona match. He has had an individual pre-season, but it isn't a problem. Momo will soon be 100% fit and we won't be looking to buy another midfielder."
