Video: PSG President on the Squad’s Victory and the Future’s of Mbappé and Neymar

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, president of Paris Saint-Germain, took the microphone to speak postgame after the capital club’s 2-1 victory over Atalanta BC with Canal Supporters relaying his words. 

The first thing that Al-Khelaifi gave his thoughts on Les Parisiens qualifying to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League. 

“It’s a very special day. It’s magnificent. We need that to change our mentality. The players gave 200%. I am very proud. I thank everyone in this difficult period. Everyone said that Paris was not ready for this Champions League, but we showed a great mentality, with great players,” Al-Khelaifi said.

“Our goal is very far away, but we are not thinking today of the final, only of the semifinal. It is very important to change the mentality. You too the media, everyone doubts PSG. The Champions League, we needed this victory to go further.”

Finally, the last topic that he touched was over the future of Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé. 

“Neymar and Kylian (Mbappé) are among the best players in the world. Neymar was the man of the match, he had a great match,” Al-Khelaifi said. “We found Neymar that he changed a lot of things in the team. I felt something special. Both will stay, they will never leave both!”

For FC Barcelona or Real Madrid supporters, this isn’t something that they will want to hear.
