French Ligue 1: Montpellier 1-2 Paris Saint-Germain

Reactions after the victory:

Coach Laurent Blanc: “We had to wait to the penultimate round of the season to win this title. But it’s just as enjoyable – even more so than last season, where everything was concluded a round earlier. I love seeing the scenes of joy on the pitch and in the changing room. It’s the players on the pitch that win titles. It’s not up to the coach to put himself to the fore. I still love doing this job. I have to thank my staff, because without his staff, a coach is nothing.”

Marquinhos: “We did everything to win, we’re champions, but the season isn’t finished yet. We still have the Coupe de France to end this season on a high.”

Lucas: “We deserve this title. I’m very happy. There are no words to describe this evening. We have had a great season, but we still have one more trophy to win. Champion mon frère!”

Salvatore Sirigu: “We are delighted tonight. It was a pretty tough season, and we were criticised a fair bit early on. But we stayed focused on what we had to do, and we deserve this title. We showed great mental strength.”

Blaise Matuidi: “This trophy has a very special feeling. It’s the third in a row and it was more difficult than the first two. We were often behind, chasing the leaders, but we did what we had to do to win it. We deserve this championship. We are winners and we still have a chance to make history. But first, we are going to enjoy this evening. This season, we showed that Paris Saint-Germain is a big club.”
