“I am the guy who has to score the goals”: ​​Mbappé does not hide and assumes responsibility after PSG’s exit

Elimination: “Of course, we are disappointed... We wanted to qualify for the final. Now, there you have it, in the Champions League you have to be effective on both surfaces. And on this point, they were better than us. We are disappointed for the supporters, for the people, for our families, our loved ones. But it's like that. It’s a long process. We showed, throughout the season, that we are capable of going far. (…) It’s sad... We have guys who tried to give everything, we worked a lot. We dedicated everything to try to make a difference but we did not succeed. Not everything has to be thrown away. We have to rely on that to continue working and I’m sure it will come.”

Last in C1 with Paris: “This season, it’s certain that we won’t play it again. Now, we are very disappointed with the result. We wanted to win, we tried to put together the ingredients to win. But once again, in this type of decisive match, in the Champions League, you have to be efficient and we were not. We hit a lot on goal but we weren't effective enough in the two matches to hope to go to the next round."

Overconfidence: “No, not at all. If we don't convince ourselves that we can win, who will do it for us? Person. So no, I don't think that's the problem. The group was calm, as they have been since the start of the season. But it's football. We haven't put in all the ingredients we need to get to the Champions League final. It's like that. But I think that everything is not to be thrown away. We still have goals, there is a Coupe de France final (May 25). We will continue to work, try to win this final and then we will take stock of this season, what was good and what was not good.

Frustration: “Yes and no. We have to score. We have the opportunities to score. And when you don't do it, when you're not effective on both surfaces, it's difficult to hope to go to the next round. Now, not everything has to be thrown away. This team gave a lot, they tried to make everyone who was there proud. It wasn't enough. Once again, not everything has to be thrown away. We will have to build on what worked, what did not work and continue to work because we have a final to play (in the Coupe de France). The season must not end because the Coupe de France is an important objective (…) for the club and for us, the players.”

PSG eliminated by stronger… or not: “Stronger, I don’t know… No need to denigrate the opponent, but I think, in my humble opinion, that they were superior in both surfaces. Afterwards, everyone will do their analyses, but the truth is that they came into our area once or twice and they scored once, whereas we were there many times without scoring. This is an implacable observation. Afterwards, I don't like to talk about bad luck. When you're good, it doesn't hit the post, it goes in. Today, we weren't good enough in this sector, whether it was us, the offensive ones... We didn't answer what was expected of us. Now, everything is not to be thrown away in the match. But in tough matches, when there are a lot of opportunities and you don't score, it's too difficult to hope to go to the next round.

His game: “I tried to help my team as best I could. It wasn't enough. When we talk about efficiency on the surfaces, I think I am the first target. I'm the guy who has to score the goals, be decisive. When it happens, I'm here and I take all the light. When that doesn't work, you have to take all the shade too. There is no problem with that. The first one to score was me. But that's life. We have to get over it, continue to work, whether it’s me or the team, and try to win this Coupe de France because it’s an important event.”

Review of the C1 campaign: “Again, when you are not effective in both surfaces, it is too difficult, and that’s when you need luck. There is very little luck in the semi-final of the Champions League... Now, if we take stock of this campaign, with a new project, quite a few new players, young players who, for most of them were having their first experience in a big club, it's not too bad. But PSG, we always want to win. We didn't win, we're sad. But we have to win the Coupe de France and we will take stock afterwards. Taking stock today would make no sense.”
