Video: ‘Prevent Them From Having Room in the Midfield’ – Hansi Flick on How Bayern Munich Will Contain Neymar and Kylian Mbappé

In the first leg between Paris Saint-Germain and FC Bayern Munich, two of the protagonist that was a thorn on the Bavarian club’s side were Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé. The 22-year-old scored two goals, and the Brazil international provided two assists in the 3-2 victory in Munich. 

Ahead of the second leg, Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick spoke to the media at a press conference where he talked about the two PSG superstars. Canal Supporters relayed the comments made by the German tactician. 

“We played for the second time against Paris. We try to close the trajectories and prevent them from having room in the midfield,” Flick said. “I am sure they will one day have the Ballon d’Or. [Mbappé] is super fast. He has excellent technique. He scores a lot of goals; for his age, he is very mature. I also like Neymar, who finds one-on-one solutions; he’s extraordinary with the ball.”
