The amazing 3-2 win over Barcelona was definitely a huge boost for Paris Saint-Germain. Everyone showed how happy they were in the post-game interviews. Especially coach Laurént Blánc.
"This is one of those games you live for", he said, among many other things. Take a look at what the coach said, along with quotes from other members of the happiest side of the night.
Nasser Al Khelaifi (Paris Saint-Germain president)
"I am very happy, very proud, of the team, the coach and the supporters. For me, this is the best victory of my life. We deserved it. The coach and the players did everything to get the win. We have had some tough weeks, with a lot of draws and we really wanted this victory. We woke up this evening."
Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
"It was a great match, a great win. We needed the points. We enjoyed a great moment this evening. The players were more focused and motivated than usual. All the ingredients were there for a great performance, but we still had to go out there and do it. I was convinced the team hadn't lost all its virtues. The most important thing for me tonight was to show that we are still a team."
David Luiz (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
"It was a great night with a great atmosphere, worthy of the Champions League. The team was excellent this evening. We hadn't been playing our best recently, but tonight we saw the real Paris Saint-Germain. It was a fantastic night. My goal? It was incredible for me. It was a dream come true to score for Paris Saint-Germain. But it's only the beginning, we need to keep working hard."
Blaise Matuidi (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder)
"We celebrated a great match this evening against a great team that were undefeated and hadn't conceded a goal this season. We scored three goals, it was a great display and we're very happy. I scored but the most important thing was to win. It's a result that shows that Paris is a great team. We know that in the big games, we stand up. But the real sign of great teams is to do it every weekend. We will try to do it. Tonight was a victory for a whole team, a whole club."
Javier Pastore (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder)
"It was a great game. We were very motivated and it showed on the pitch. I played well, but so did the whole team. Everyone worked hard defensively, it was important. The matches that launch a season are always in the Champions League. We knew that this year, every match will be difficult. We have to start every game with the same motivation."
Did you see what the president said? This is the best win of his life! Round 2 of the UCL group stage! Imagine what that guy would say if they win the whole thing.
