Carlo Ancelotti reacts to defeat PSG

As a fallout from Paris Saint-Germain Champions League Exit continues, new reports paint a picture of a shared dressing room.

PSG were on pole position to reach the last eight in Europe, with Kylian Mbappe giving Mauricio Pochettino’s side a first-leg advantage and doubling the overall lead at Real Madrid’s Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. But, a “magic” hat trick by Karim Benzema turned the tie in the Spanish side’s favor and sent the Ligue 1 leaders out of contention.

After the game there were reports from a confrontation between teammates Neymar and Gianluigi Donnarumma what was later downplayed by both players. However, after the exit was followed by a slight league defeat at Monaco, more reports surfaced from the European media.

According to RMC Sport (via Get French football news ) the PSG dressing room is now divided into two “clans”. These have Spanish speakers on the one hand and “certain francophones” on the other.

The report claims none of the players spoke on the way back from Monaco, while one side of the rift is said to be frustrated over alleged leniency towards the other. The 0:3 defeatbrought on by a brace from Wissam Ben Yedder and a goal from Kevin Volland, was the third in five league games for Pochettino’s men.

“The international break should allow for a change in mentality and get us back to where we should be,” said the former Tottenham said managers. “We have to come back with the responsibility that comes with putting that jersey on.”
