After the game, PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke about the title win and the fans’ protest. Notably, the PSG fans are protesting against the club for the rumoured transfer of Paul Pogba. The fans feel that the club overpaid for the French mid-fielder. â€œWe are going through a difficult period with the fans and we hope it will get better. Weâ€™re in a democracy and we accept all protests. But we have to show respect for this title, â€ said Mauricio Pochettino.
On the other hand, PSG captain Marquinhos spoke about the poor atmosphere in the ground the team had faced during the game. â€œThe atmosphere is a shame. Football is our passion. Weâ€™ll try to have as much fun as possible. Itâ€™s a shame that wonâ€™t be with the supporters but we have to deal with it.â€
