'We gave our lives for the PSG shirt' - Di Maria proud despite Champions League final defeat to Bayern Munich


Angel Di Maria PSG vs Bayern Munich Champions League final 2019-20

Angel Di Maria has expressed his pride in Paris Saint-Germain's performance in the Champions League final despite losing to Bayern Munich, insisting the players "gave our lives for this shirt".

PSG made their first ever appearance in a European final against Bayern atEstadiodaLuz in Lisbon on Sunday, having seen off RB Leipzig, Atalanta and Borussia Dortmund in the previous knock-out rounds.

Their opponents were favourites to win the trophy after beating Chelsea, Barcelona and Lyon in emphatic fashion en route to the showpiece event, but the game was ultimately decided by the finest of margins.

PSG might have gone in at half-time with a leadhad Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Di Maria not squandered clear openings, with Manuel Neuerproducing afine display in the Bayern net.

Robert Lewandowski came closest for Hansi Flick's side in the opening 45 minutes when he struck the post, but it wasn't until just before the hour mark that the breakthrough was made.

Joshua Kimmich floated in a delightful cross for KingsleyComan to head the ball home at the back post, and Bayern held on for a 1-0 victory to secure their sixth Champions League crown.

Di Maria took to social media to express his disappointment post-match, but also promised that PSG's wait for an elusive piece of silverware will not go on forever.

"We fought until the last second. We gave our lives for this shirt. We will always try to wear it as proudly as possible," the Argentine winger wrote on Instagram. "Today we could not cap an incredible year, but football allows us to take revenge, and I know that one day this club will have it.

"Thank you to the ultras for the unconditional support. We will continue to fight as we always have done. GO PARIS."

Di Maria's positive stance on PSG's failureechoed the sentiments of PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who guaranteed that the Champions League trophy will be brought back to Parc des Princes in the near future after the final whistle.
