In light of PSG’s disappointing 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in their Champions League last 16 first leg clash, midfielder Adrien Rabiot has taken aim his teammates.
Some may even view his comments as having been aimed particularly at Brazilian superstar Neymar, who arrived at the club for €222m last summer from Barcelona.
The Parisians took the lead through Rabiot himself, but Cristiano Ronaldo struck twice to get the hosts back on track before Marcelo sealed the win with a late effort.
PSG are storming ahead in Ligue 1 and are one of the most prolific goalscorers in Europe, but the French club have a reputation for bottling it in European competition.
Rabiot, it seems, is sick of experiencing the same routine every year, despite having the world’s most expensive player this time around.
The 22-year-old midfielder was furious after the latest European setback and he let fly in his post-match comments.
“I am disappointed. We started by producing the match that we needed to,” he declared.
“We always say the same things, we always do the same things, and in the end, we are always floored in the same way.
“It’s all well and good putting eight goals past Dijon, but it’s in matches like this that you have to stand up and be counted.”
PSG now have an uphill task on home soil during the upcoming second leg, with Zinedine Zidane’s men having taken a promising step closer to retaining their Champions League crown for an incredible third successive season.
