Olympique Lyon 0-1 Paris Saint Germain

Fans had to wait nineteen years for PSG third title in Ligue 1 after 1986 and 1994.

Reactions:

Carlo Ancelotti (Paris Saint-Germain coach): “I’m very happy! It was not easy to come and win here. We played well and we stood firm despite a difficult opening few minutes when Lyon applied some high and intense pressing. We fulfilled our objectives of winning the Ligue 1 title and going a long way in the Champions League. The squad has worked very hard and were always very professional.”

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (Paris Saint-Germain president): “I am delighted to have won this title after two very tough years. We deserve to win this trophy. We were happy that Marseille won yesterday, because we wanted to win the league with a victory in this match. It’s a magnificent moment for the club and our supporters. I am so proud of our fans who have been right behind us through thick and thin. They deserve this title too after 19 years…”

Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper): “C’est magnifique! We really suffered tonight, especially the players who, like me, couldn’t play this evening. This was the triumph of a whole squad, a whole club. This is the first championship victory of my career. That is so important! I want to thank all my teammates. We had great fin this season, we laughed a lot, even when people were writing us off. Paris haven’t won the title in 19 years. This is historic. We hope it is the first of many!”

Mamadou Sakho (Paris Saint-Germain defender): “This is a moment of great joy and emotion. I am so happy. It was a very difficult match at the end of a difficult season. We have won the title in the end and I’m over the moon to have won this trophy this year. I have already won the Coupe de France and the Coupe de la Ligue with Paris and I came through the youth ranks at this club so this is just unbelievable! Now we want to finish the season well and celebrate this triumph with our supporters.”
