Kylian Mbappé reacts to shock 5-1 defeat to Lille: “We need to play with more character. It is one of our weaknesses I think.”

Speaking to Canal + following an exceptional 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Lille, PSG attacker Kylian Mbappé called on his team to show more personality.

“It was box to box, it went from one side to the other. At certain moments we were in control, at others we weren’t. Aside from that when you lose… We are going to be champions, but when you lose you cannot lose in this way. We cannot lack character like that, concede 3, 4, 5 goals – that is not normal. They are a good team so congratulations to them. They have a fantastic set of fans, a lovely stadium. But we must play with more personality. That is one of our weaknesses I think, we are going to have to quickly fix that. We cannot go over the top either, people are going to talk about the club, I don’t know what else… Football is played on the pitch. Today we played like amateurs. We need to re-focus, there is a match on Wednesday, but I think we need to stop losing like that.”
