Kylian Mbappé, Neymar Jr, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Thomas Tuchel, Juan Bernat, Dani Alves and Thiago Silva all looked back at Paris Saint-Germain's 2-1 home win over Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday:
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (Paris Saint-Germain chairman and CEO)
"I am very happy with the result. We played very well, like we wanted to play. We showed we are capable of, what our great players are capable of, what a real team is capable of. We answered all those people that said Paris aren't there for the big games. This wasn't an easy match, Liverpool are a great team, that play very well, and we produced a great performance, the coach, the staff, the players, everyone!
Thomas Tuchel (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
"This was the opportunity to show that we could match it with a team like Liverpool. This team has an incredible mentality so it was important to show that we are capable of playing good football and fighting. That's what we were waiting for and that's what we did. We played with a lot of energy, we worked hard as a team. We work hard with a great attitude. We won a high-intensity and very important match."
Juan Bernat (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
"My goals against Napoli and Liverpool? Yes, they are the two most important goals of my career! Both with my right-foot which is very rare for me!... I'm very happy to have been able to help the team. We played really well, we worked really hard and every player sacrificed themselves for the team and that was the key to victory."
Dani Alves (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
"The team played really well. We needed a match like this. We needed to fight, to give everything to keep moving forward in this competition. I'm very happy because the team played really well and produced a great performance. Now, it's not finished, we need to keep going like this."
Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
"The most important thing today was to play like a team. The atmosphere at the Parc is always fantastic, but today it was even better than usual. We worked hard to prepare for this match because if we lost, we would have been eliminated. We are very happy with the victory. The team produced a fantastic performance. We are all here to play in matches like this. We have already shown that we can play like this. But it's not finished yet, we're not qualified yet. We need to play in Belgrade and it's not easy to play there. We need to produce the perfect game to qualify."
Kylian Mbappé (Paris Saint-Germain forward)
"We answered the physical challenge laid down by Liverpool, and matched their intensity. We gave so much in the first half that we were a little tired in the second. We held on for the result and we are very happy."
Neymar Jr (Paris Saint-Germain forward)
"This match was a real battle. I am very happy with the victory. We showed great spirit and that was crucial the getting the win. We showed everyone that we are determined to go as far as possible in this competition. Brazil's top scorer in the Champions League? It's a great source of joy, an honour and a great source of pride. I hope to keep scoring goals for my team, that's the most important thing."
