Al-Khelaïfi: 'A great night'

Just moments after the final whistle, find out what Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Patrick Kluivert, Presnel Kimpembe, Angel Di Maria, Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti had to say after Paris Saint-Germain's 4-0 victory over Barcelona.

 

Nasser Al-Khelaïfi (Paris Saint-Germain president)
"It's a really great night. I am proud of everyone, the coaching staff, the players, everyone did a great job. Before the game, we dreamed of a result like this. Yesterday we got the bad news that Thiago Silva was out, but I felt something within the squad. The atmosphere was magnificent, it was a perfect night. But we are only at half-time in this match... we have to keep working for the return leg."

Patrick Kluivert (Paris Saint-Germain Director of Football)
"We played a great game. All the players were at 100%. When we play like that, our opponents struggle. Bravo to the team, but we're not qualified yet! When you win 4-0 against one of the best teams in the world, we're allowed to be satisfied with ourselves. We have to enjoy this moment, and then focus on the match against Toulouse!"

Unai Emery (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
"We played really well tonight, we worked hard and stuck together. We were focused for the full 90 minutes, took our chances, we were solid, individually and as a team, in order to win this match. Now we have to keep working hard for the return leg. I'm very happy that we played well and the supporters enjoyed the game and were always right behind the team."

Presnel Kimpembe (Paris Saint-Germain defender)
"It's really emotional! It was a special match and we prepared well, all together. A win, four goals scored, none against… perfect. It's a dream come true. Before the match, my teammates gave me lots of advice, told me they had every confidence in me."

Angel Di Maria (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder)
"We worked very hard to prepare for this match. It was a very big game, a special match, against one of the best teams in the world. We did what we had to do. We will give it everything at the Camp Nou, where it will be another very tough game, and complete a fantastic job."
