Kylian Mbappe Reveals He's Struggling To Sleep After Manchester United Loss
Kylian Mbappe has revealed that since PSG were knocked out of the Champions League on Wednesday night he's not been able to sleep, and it's the same for the rest of his teammates too.
Heading into Wednesday night PSG knew that they would have to be on the wrong side of history if they were to fail to make it through to the Champions League quarter finals.
Never before on 106 occasions had a team won the first leg of a knockout game 2-0 away from home and failed to go through to the next round. The Ligue 1 champions had done exactly that in the first leg and were facing a Manchester United side missing 10 first team players.
However history was made with Romelu Lukaku's double in the first half and Marcus Rashford's controversial injury time penalty giving United a 3-1 win on the night, after Juan Bernat equalised in the first half, and take the Premier League side through on away goals.
At the end of the match Neymar, who wasn't playing, was spotted looking shocked but his strike partner Kylian Mbappe was shown to be struggling with it even more.
The Frenchman was consoled by several people from United, including manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and had to be lifted to his feet by Edinson Cavani.
Speaking to Telefoot the former Monaco striker revealed the result had left him unable to sleep, saying:
"We are stunned. There are no words.

It was the second time in recent history that PSG had thrown away what seemed like an insoluble lead in the Champions League.
Two years ago the French side led Barcelona 4-0 after the first leg at home but lost 6-1 in the Camp Nou to go out.
The 20 year old did reveal that he's no interest in not being a PSG player next year and wants to help them get over the defeat, adding, "I'll be there (at the start of next season), it's safe. With what has just happened - and even before, it was already locked down.
"There are many people who doubt, but I still believe in this project."
Will PSG ever win the Champions League title?
