By  | 

Paris Saint-Germain boss, Unai Emery has reacted to his side’s 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 second leg on Tuesday.

The manager admitted that Zinedine Zidane’s side played better than his, and added that he has no interest in discussing his future at the club.

PSG suffered a 2-1 loss at the Parc des Princes to fall to Madrid 5-2 on aggregate as their wait for a first Champions League continues.

Asked about his future, Emery told UEFA: “Today, I’m not thinking about [that].”

Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro scored either side of Edinson Cavani’s strike, while PSG had Marco Verratti sent off.

The Spaniard added, “Madrid played better than us. We wanted to push more, but the first goal hit our chances and so did the red card. Madrid deserved to go through.

“Losing to Madrid is not a disappointment, but going out in the last 16 is. But, the first leg was the key because we were better over the first 80 minutes than them.

“They controlled 60 per cent of this match and we couldn’t do enough in the 40 per cent we controlled.”
