The loss against United marked as  continuation of a Champions league frustration for the French club, now this is the third time they got eliminated from the Champions league round of 16, the defender says that this loss is hard to move on from.

He voiced: “It hurts me, very bad even, I feel what the fans feel,”

“I can see their anger, I realize it, I understand it and, most importantly, I assume it so that I can swallow it. It’s a game that inevitably stays in the heads but that we will have to forget for the rest of the season. “

He added: “We lost that grit and that rage we had in the first leg,”

“It’s not the fact of having lived through past experiences that made us feel stressed. or whatever it was. No, it was really a self-satisfaction.

“We took this game lightly, and it’s something that will never happen to me again. It’s enough, never again.

“Of course we will lose more games in the UCL, but losing games like this is over. I don’t want it to happen to us anymore.”
