Paris Saint-Germain's exit from the UEFA Champions League was met with delight from Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher. Speaking on CBS Sports, the former defender expressed his disapproval of the Parisian club's sporting policies and labeled the team a "mess."
Displeasure with PSG's Set-Up
In a segment featuring fellow football analysts Kate Abdo, Thierry Henry, and Micah Richards, Carragher stated, "I am delighted that PSG have gone out.
I just don't like the whole setup - everything about it. That is not a team, it is a mess. Five years of the last seven, they have gone out at the round of 16. They have spent more money than anyone." Despite PSG's star-studded roster featuring some of the world's best players, Carragher believes that their lack of cohesiveness as a team has been their downfall.

The Importance of Teamwork in Football
Carragher emphasized the significance of teamwork in football, saying, "They have the best players in the world.
And this is brilliant because it shows you how important it is to actually be a team. It is really important in football. We love individuals within a team but that is not a team. Kylian Mbappe has got to leave that club."
Bayern's Victory over PSG
Bayern Munich advanced to the quarterfinals of the Champions League after securing a 3-0 aggregate victory over PSG.
The Bavarians won 1-0 in the first leg in Paris, and followed up with a 2-0 win in the second leg at the Allianz Arena, with goals from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Serge Gnabry.
Manager and Coach Offer Post-Match Thoughts
Bayern manager, Julian Nagelsmann, praised his team's performance, stating, "In the first half, we didn't execute what we had talked about as well as we should have.
There was too much space. But we defend better in the second half and were dangerous on the ball. In the end, we deserved to win. If we show maximum hunger with emotion and we couple that with our quality, then we can achieve anything." On the other hand, PSG coach, Christophe Galtier, expressed disappointment in his team's loss, saying, "We did not manage to score when we were on top of things.
Then we concede a ridiculous goal. What made the difference is the fact we missed some key players in both legs. It's a big disappointment but we have to swallow it."
