Mbappé’s “ruthless statement” – BVB tease with photo

Kylian Mbappé took responsibility after the Champions League exit against BVB – but wants to wait to assess his final PSG season

Kylian Mbappé can also be seen in the photo, which Borussia Dortmund gleefully pulled out once again on Tuesday evening. After the 2019/20 Champions League round of 16, the Paris Saint-Germain professionals celebrated their progress against BVB by sitting down on the grass of the Parc des Princes in a relaxed yoga pose – exactly how Erling Haaland had celebrated his brace against PSG in the first leg. “Tastes like good wine,” BVB wrote on their English-language X account four years later, after black and yellow had left the Paris stadium victorious this time.

Even Mbappé, who only came on as a substitute, could not prevent PSG from having to bury their dream of a first Champions League triumph once again. As in the first leg, he only showed glimpses of his qualities and was again – and not the only one – to hit the aluminum. And so he will leave his long-standing club in the summer with 48 goals in 73 Champions League games – and no title

Mbappé: BVB “superior in both penalty areas “

However, the real goalscorer did not want to explain the loss away with bad luck, even if it would have been easy to do so after that evening. “There’s no reason to make the opponent look bad. I think they were superior in both penalty areas,” he conceded. “That’s a ruthless observation.” If you’re good enough, the ball doesn’t hit the post, but the goal

Accordingly, he also took responsibility for the two 1-0 defeats. “I tried to help my team as much as possible. That wasn’t enough. I’m the one who has to score the goals and be decisive. When things are going well, I take all the light; when things aren’t going well, you have to take all the shade.” He has no problem with that.

After last summer’s upheaval, Mbappé sees the semi-final as “not too bad”, but wants to wait to sum up the season. PSG, who have already clinched the next championship, will face Olympique Lyon in the cup final on May 25 – and Mbappé now wants to say goodbye with this title. His appeal: “The season must not come to a standstill now, because the French Cup is an important goal. “
