PSG's Ander Herrera Says Champions League Final With No Fans Is "S**t" In Brutally Honest Interview

PSG's Ander Herrera Says Champions League Final With No Fans Is "S**t" In Brutally Honest Interview

Ander Herrera has admitted it felt "s**t" to play a Champions League final behind closed door in a brutally honest interview.

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder started last night's game as Bayern Munich ran out 1-0 winners to claim their sixth Champions League crown.

It was yet another big final that had to be played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Herrera spoke to Viaplay Football after the game and when asked about football with no fans, he replied: "It's s***, horrible.

"For me, fans are the key in this sport, they're the most important thing in football.

"Football without fans is nothing. I hope all the people realise football is for fans. The business had to continue because it's a big business.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos were denied by an inspired Manuel Neuer and Herrera conceded they should have taken their chances.

"The conclusion that I have right now is that if you miss clear chances and you play against another top side, they will probably kill you," the Spaniard claimed. "As they did.

"I think we did everything to win the game, we created two or three big chances in the first half and we didn't score. Even after they scored we created two or three chances."

"They knew how to win, and we also knew how to lose the game.

"When you lose, you are f**ked for a couple of days, but when you lose the way we lost, you can take a lot of things to make you stronger."
