Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti needs to learn from mistakes such as his Champions League red card to live up to his potential as a big player, his club coach Unai Emery said on Tuesday.
“This is not the first time. He needs to improve his temperament,” said Emery.
“He needs to control his feelings, especially in the big matches. He’s a player with a lot of personality and we have spoken to him about it,” added Emery, whose side were reduced to 10 men whilst trying to overturn a deficit against Real Madrid.
“But he’s getting better and he’s a very important player for us both now and for the future.”
“He will continue to develop,” Emery said of the 25-year-old who has played 154 games for PSG and 24 times for Italy.
