President of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al-Khelaifi made a confession before the reunion in the Champions League with Bayern.
As every season, Paris Saint-Germain is presented as a contender for the final title in the Champions League. His attacking triplet composed of Messi, Neymar and Mbappe is particularly in great shape at the beginning of the season. Nevertheless, PSG disappointed somewhat in the group stage by finishing behind Benfica Lisbon. A position that exposed the club of the capital to a European cador in the knockout stages of the C1. The Red and Blue will indeed play big against Bayern Munich in the next round. Before these European reunions, Nasser Al-Khelaifi wanted to be modest about Paris’ ambitions in C1.
PSG : Le mea culpa de Nasser Al Agaemphelaifi avant le Bayern
For the president of Paris Saint-Germain, one of the big mistakes of QSI was to make a Champions League title his priority as soon as he arrived. Despite the squad available to Christophe Galtier, Nasser Al-Khelaifi does not want to get carried away this season regarding this European Cup title. “I already said it before the season. Step by step. The end of the World Cup already… then the Ligue 1. And in February, we will face Bayern. […] You may be right. It’s not a shame to say that we made mistakes. We must also say that our club is bigger than that. There are women’s, judo, handball …”, the Qatari leader told The Team.
As a reminder, PSG had been eliminated in the knockout stages of the Champions League by Real Madrid last season. Winners in the first leg, the Parisians had suffered a remontada on the return to Santiago Bernabeu. Now it remains to be seen whether they will take this step against Bayern this season.
