French World Cup star assured fans that the Champions League exit doesn’t affect his future at PSG and that he is thinking about winning the Ligue 1 title
PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich, losing 3-0 on aggregate. However, World Cup Golden Boot winner Kylian Mbappe insists that this will not affect his future at the club.
Mbappe ‘disappointed’ with UCL exit
PSG failed to overturn a one-goal deficit from the first leg as Bayern Munich scored two with Choupo-Moting and Gnabry. Bayern now join Benfica, Chelsea and AC Milan in the quarter-finals as they await next week’s results.
This is PSG’s second consecutive Champions League round of 16 exit. This may strengthen the reasons why Mbappe could join Real Madrid.
When asked by reporters whether the elimination would impact his future, Mbappe said: “No, no, I’m calm, the only thing that matters to me this season is winning the championship and then we’ll see.”
The 24-year-old added: “We are disappointed. That’s how it is, we have to move on, try to challenge everyone.
“We didn’t miss much when we look at the state of the two teams. [but] they have a team built to win the Champions League.
“At the start of the season, during the first Champions League press conference, I said that we were going to do our best and give our maximum.
“We’re going to question ourselves and go back to our day-to-day life in Ligue 1.”
