The president of PSG did not shy away from his pleasure after the victory won by his troops on the pitch of Real Sociedad (1-2).

Ejected from the Champions League in the round of 16 the previous two years, against Real Madrid and yes against Bayern Munich, PSG will be there for the quarter-finals. Three weeks after a first 2-0 victory at the Parc des Princes, the French champions won 2-1 at Anoeta, successfully validating their ticket to the Top 8.

Questioned after the meeting, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi expressed his pride. “I think we played very, very well tonight. We played at a very high level. We were a team, everyone played for everyone else. We are the youngest team qualified for the quarter-finals, but also the youngest team in a Champions League phase, he emphasized. We are proud. We are building a project for the future. I saw a team, players all evolve together and do what the coach wants to see. I think this is very good news for everyone. »

The Parisian president also said all the good things he thought of Kylian Mbappé, author of the two Parisian goals. “Kylian, it’s Kylian. He is one of the best players in the world. The whole team played very well. He scored two goals, of course, it’s magnificent. He is the best player in the world in my opinion, it’s true,” he said, adding: “The eleven players, including Kylian, played for the others. This is what we want, to build something for the future, depending on what the coach wants. This match represents the attacking style of play that we want to implement in the future. That’s wonderful. We are very happy. »
