Kylian Mbappe Discusses PSG Future After Champions League Defeat To Manchester United

Kylian Mbappe has spoken out after PSG's recent loss to Man Utd.
Kylian Mbappe has spoken out after PSG's recent loss to Man Utd.

Kylian Mbappe and the rest of the Paris Saint-Germain team have had a longer time to lament on that devastating loss to Manchester United that has seen them crash out of the Champions League, with no league fixture on the subsequent weekend.

"I'm stunned. We'd worked so hard to get to this point," Mbappe told French TV channel TF1 (via BBC).

"I haven't been able to sleep. I'm pretty sure it's been the same with everyone.”

PSG have won the Ligue 1 title in five of the past six seasons, with another seemingly inevitable at the end of 2018/19 as Les Parisiens are currently 14 points clear of nearest ‘challenger’ Lille, and with two games in hand on Les Dogues.

However, it is European conquest that PSG are striving for, with them initially emerging as one of the favourites for the competition at the beginning of the season, mainly due to a combination of their domestic dominance and the brobdingnagian sums of money that have been splurged on their squad.

A stunning performance by the Red Devils at the Parc des Princes to overturn a 2-0 deficit suffered at Old Trafford put an end to that, and initiated more conversation as to where the destination of the plethora of stars that currently pocket the France capital remain.

The jewel in the crown, Mbappe, has however, assured that his immediate future remains with PSG;

'I'll be here next year for sure, that's already agreed,' he told Telefoot.

'It doesn't help to worry about my personal situation so that's it. Clear and precise.'

It’s important - and incredible - to remember that Mbappe is still only 20-years-old. Spare a thought for poor teammate Gianluigi Buffon who despite being one of the most decorated and celebrated goalkeepers of all time, has seen the Champions League evade his clutches in his near quarter-of-a-century career.

The World Cup Golden Boy, Mbappe, still has a great deal of time in his footballing career to win the most prestigious trophy in club football, though the immediate pain at that Manchester United humbling will take a while to dissipate.
