Neymar And Mbappe PSG Stars Reflect On Defeat, ‘Losing Is Part Of The Sport’
Neymar said “losing is part of the sport” as the tearful Paris St. Germain star congratulated Bayern Munich on being declared champions of the Champions League.
After a 1-0 loss to Bayern in Lisbon on Sunday, PSG were unable to complete their first Champions League final appearance with silverware.
Neymar cut an emotional figure post-match after PSG failed to add a maiden European crown to their domestic sweep of 2019-20 titles in France.
Afterwards, Neymar wrote via Twitter: “Losing is part of the sport, we try everything, we fight until the end.
“Thanks for the support and affection from everyone. Congratulations Bayer [sic].”
Kingsley Coman’s second-half header saw Bundesliga champions Bayern emerge triumphant as they claimed their sixth European Cup/Champions League trophy.
For eight seasons it also saw Bayern secure a second treble with PSG ending their run as winners of the Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee de Champions.
Mbappe – a World Cup champion with France – also took to social media following the showpiece event.
“Disappointed not to end this year with the best of awards, but life is made that way,” Mbappe wrote on Twitter.
