Champions League: Koeman reacts as Barcelona crash out to PSG

Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman, has reacted to his side’s exit from the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Catalans crashed out to PSG in the last 16.

The game between PSG and Lionel Messi-led Barcelona ended 5-2 on aggregate in favour of the Ligue 1 side.

The first leg ended 4-1 in Camp Nou with the second leg tie ending in 1-1 in Paris, Kylian Mbappe cancelling out Messi’s opener.

Addressing the press after the game Koeman said: “Okay, we are out, which is what counts in this sport.

“But we leave with good sensations. We had opportunities to make things very complicated for our rival.

“We were the superior team in the first half, taking big risks at the back with man-to-man marking.

“Really, we deserved more for that effort. It should at least have been 2-1 to us at half time.

“If we’d led at the break, the second half would have been a whole different affair.”
