‘They lost their nerves and started kicking us’: Riyad Mahrez takes aim at beaten PSG players.

'They lost their nerves and started kicking us': Riyad Mahrez takes aim at beaten PSG players.

City’s Riyad Mahrez has slammed ill-disciplined PSG players lashing out as the Cityzens reached their first Champions League final in football history.

Mahrez who got on the scoresheet in the 2-1 first-leg victory in Paris, and bagged a double on Tuesday night to conclude a 4-1 victory on aggregate.

PSG lost their control in the first leg, with Idrissa Gueye sent off for an ugly challenge on City’s Ilkay Gundogan.

PSG were reduced to 10 men in the second leg following Angel Di Maria’S straight red card for a silly stamp on Fernandinho on the touchline in the 69th minute.

Presnel Kimpembe was lucky to avoid a red card for a rash challenge on Gabriel Jesus.

Mahrez said:


“It was a very good game. We didn’t start good again. I don’t think we had a very good first half but we scored a goal and then we were more comfortable.

“After the goal in the second half we played very good, we could have scored more, then they lost their nerves and started kicking us, they had a red card and it was more comfortable for us.

“I don’t think it was our game plan to counter, they had to come at us – sometimes they lose the ball and they are good on the counter as well. We were happy with the second goal.”

Mahrez capped an all-embracing move started by goalkeeper Ederson’s 60-yard pass to unlock the scoring in the 11th minute.

Mahrez added:


“[Ederson] We know he’s capable to put the ball to the other goal, it’s something we work on all the time – today it worked well.

“When you play the semi-final of the Champions League you have to be solid – everyone has to contribute for the defense and that’s what we did, we were very solid today, we didn’t concede much that’s why were in the final.”
