Mike Maignan on PSG’s loss in Champions League: “PSG against Bayern? It doesn’t matter to me at all.”

After his Champions League shutout and after arguably being his team’s best player against Tottenham, Mike Maignan was interviewed by beIN Sports. While his performance was more than worthy of airtime he could have never guessed the question that was to come. 

The conversation took an unexpected turn when the former PSG academy product was asked about his thoughts on PSG’s elimination from the Champions League. The former Ligue 1 and Serie A champion spoke about his childhood club stating, “The elimination of PSG against Bayern? It doesn’t matter to me at all, I’m at Milan (laughs). I don’t know what else I can say. Training in Paris? Yes, but that’s nine years since I left. I’m focused on my current club.”

Despite his history with the club, the French international was clearly taken back by the timing of the question. The goalkeeper trained at PSG from 2009 to 2015 and was the club where he signed his first professional contract in 2013. He later moved to LOSC, where he established himself as one of the top goalkeepers in Ligue 1. On top of his success with his club team, the goalkeeper is believed to be in pole position to take over for Hugo Lloris.
