LIGUE 1 - Mbappe on win against Leipzig: We might have had weak points
Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé, speaking to Canal+ after his team's 3-2 triumph against Leipzig today, highlighted the difficulty posed by tonight's opponents, pointing out that his team's performances had both good and disadvantages to take from them.
“Every game is difficult in the Champions League. We’re at home and in front of our supporters, we’ve won and we’re top of the group, that’s what counts. We didn’t have a bad game either, I think there were some good aspects, others not as much maybe but when you’re up against good teams there are always things that don’t go as well. I wouldn’t say we were lucky, no. You create your own luck, there’s no such thing in this kind of game.”
“We had passages where we were sat in their half, where we managed to combine and be dangerous, we cause them problems. We might have had weak points that were a bit too weak but I don’t think we were lucky.”
“[On the penalties] It’s normal [that I left Messi take the first], it’s about respect. He’s the best player in the world, it’s a privilege that he plays with us, I’ve always said it. If there’s a penalty, he’s the one that takes it, full stop. On the second one, he told me, “take it”, it was at the end, he gave it to me and I took it.”
