Mbappe speaks as PSG faces exit door in Champions league

Following PSG’s 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the first leg of the UEFA Champions league knockout game, Kylian Mbappe has expressed his optimism that the Ligue one giant will ace the German side in the second leg.

Speaking after the match on Tuesday’s night where his goal , which could have leveled his team against the visitors was disallowed due to offside, the 24-year-old noted that they will go for a win in the second leg.

“As we said, we said we had to take the positives. It’s a two-legged tie. We can’t change what happened in the first leg”

“We will go there to qualify. We know that there is a possibility. There is always a good possibility to qualify. So we will go there with a lot of energy and determination.

He underscored the fact that there’s no more away goal as an opportunity that also take his team close to qualifying.

“It’s not a comeback. There’s no longer the away goal. We have to score a goal and we’ll be level, so we have to go there and win.Play our game, play attacking football, which we know how to do and try to go there and win.”

That he was initially ruled out of the first leg with a hamstring injury sustained against Montpellier, Mbappe also admitted he wasn’t supposed to play.

“I wasn’t supposed to play but I wanted to play and help my team-mates,” he added.

“We did everything, we worked night and day to get me some game time.

“I wanted to [start the game]. But sometimes you have to be satisfied with what you can do, and that’s all I could do.

“My feeling? I was a bit concerned, but I gave everything I had and I have nothing left. Now we have to continue and recover well.

“Like I said, get everyone back healthy and all come back at 100 per cent, and I’m sure it can go well” said the french football star on PSG official website.
