Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino and left-back Nuno Mendes spoke to PSGTV after the Coupe de France elimination at the hands of OGC Nice.

Mauricio Pochettino 

"We are very disappointed, obviously, to lose on penalties. I think we were the better team overall, but not enough to get the victory. Penalties are always a lottery and tonight it wasn’t out night.

"Sum up the Coupe de France campaign? It’s not easy, because there were a lot of good things. We are very disappointed tonight, and now we need to try and be positive, even though it’s not easy and look forward and be strong for the next game.

"Of course the players are disappointed, like everyone, but on Wednesday we begin to prepare the next game and to be as good as possible."


"It was a positive game from our side. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to go through to the next round but we need to keep working.

"I felt good on the pitch, I did what I had to do, to help the team as much as possible but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to win. So now we’ll keep working and give our all next match.

"It’s really important to have the supporters. We had them today, we’ve had them at all matches but less due to Covid. I think it’s a good initiative to have all the supporters again from the next game. It really helps the team and that’s what we need."
