Paris Saint Germain

Mbappe unhappy as PSG hammered

15th April 2019, 08:18 by Michael Holland

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe hit out at his side's lack of character after they suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat at Lille.

The Parisians are cruising to the Ligue 1 title, which will be sealed with victory against Nantes this week, but Mbappe was far from happy with the performance, despite the fact it was 1-1 before they were reduced to 10 men.

"It was a box-to-box game, some moments we were in control, some moments we were not," Mbappe said.

"We're going to be champions but we cannot lose like this. It's not normal. We lack personality, it's one of our flaws, we have to correct this. We played like debutants."

Meanwhile, boss Thomas Tuchel disagreed and says a lack of fit players has been the problem.

"It's not possible, even Thilo Kehrer who came on for Thiago Silva was ill today," the German said.

"I don't even know how many players I can take to Nantes. We don't have enough players. Nobody talks about it because we win but today was just too much."
