Carragher says he is 'delighted' PSG have exited the Champions League

‘This is brilliant because it shows you how important it is to actually be a TEAM’: Jamie Carragher says he is ‘delighted’ PSG have crashed out of the Champions League after French giants are defeated by Bayern Munich

  • PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich 
  • The French champions were well beaten by the German giants at the Allianz
  • They have now exited at the round of 16 in five of the last seven seasons 

Jamie Carragher has said that he is ‘delighted’ that PSG have had another early Champions League exit.

The French giants went in to Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 clash with Bayern Munich with a big task ahead of them after suffering a 1-0 defeat in Paris.

They flattered to deceive once again in Europe with Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Serge Gnabry striking in the second half to secure a 3-0 win for the Germans on aggregate.

The likes of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe were fairly anonymous on the night and Carragher believes the result was a good thing for football. 

‘I am delighted that PSG have gone out,’ Carragher said after the match on CBS Sports.

‘I just don’t like the whole setup – everything about it. That is not a team, it is a mess.

‘Five years of the last seven, they have gone out at the round of 16. They have spent more money than anyone. They have the best players in the world.

‘And this is brilliant because it shows you how important it is to actually be a team. It is really important in football. 

‘We love individuals within a team but that is not a team. Kylian Mbappe has got to leave that club.’

Despite a decade of signing the best players in the world PSG have reached the final of the Champions League just once, during the shortened season played without fans due to Covid.

The club’s focus on signing big name superstars rather than forming a well balanced team continues to fail them when it matters.
