Reactions from the pitch
Coach Flick – FC Bayern:
“I’m proud of the team. The development over the last ten months has just been sensational. I haven’t given the team a curfew. We should celebrate properly, we’ve earned it. A big thank you to the whole team. There are so many people who’ve helped, it belongs to all of them. The team resolutely went down this path today. We saw Paris have a lot of quality up front but we defended bravely from the front. I think we deserved to win especially because of the second half. We have players that are determined to win and that’s what you need as a coach.”
Coach Tuchel – PSG:
“I honestly think that if we had scored the first goal, we would have won the game. We have to accept it. It’s not easy, but we can be proud, because we battled well against one of the best teams in the world. We gave everything. We left our hearts on the pitch. We did what we had to to win, and in the end we lacked a clinical streak.
Manuel Neuer was incredible. We might have had more of the ball, but you can’t always ask for more, we also have to have the confidence to have the ball. In spite of that, we had some big chances in the first half. I feel empty, I’ve also given my all. Right now, I’m disappointed, but not too much, because after four trophies and this final, this run in the Champions League, we have every reason to be proud.”
Paris Saint-Germain glorious night will have to wait. The French champions will try to get back to the Final next year in Istanbul.
