Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has revealed his side were ‘angry’ that they did not beat Manchester United by more than two goals at Old Trafford.
The French giants take a healthy two-goal lead into the second leg in Paris after goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Mbappe in the second half put Thomas Tuchel’s men in full control.
The first half was an edgy affair but PSG were scintilatting after the interval and Mbappe had a golden chance to finish the tie when he missed a one-on-one with David De Gea. And the 20-year-old admits the squad were ‘angry’ after the game that they did not put the tie to bed at the Theatre of Dreams.
‘We are annoyed because we could have scored a 3rd,’ said Mbappe. ‘I think with a 3rd it would have been over. I am going to prepare myself to score another in the 2nd leg’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the first manager in United’s history to lose a home tie by more than one goal after PSG’s victory.
It was the Norwegian’s first defeat in 12 matches as caretaker boss and he described it as a ‘reality check’ after the game.
