"We're disgusted, it's time to shut our mouths", says PSG captain Marquinhos after Marseille defeat

Paris Saint-Germain lost 2-1 against Marseille in the Coupe de France last 16 round on Wednesday.

After the match,




said they are disgusted after the defeat to their rivals.

"We missed things, it's time to shut our mouths,"

he told beIN SPORTS.

"We know we have to improve a lot if we want to do good things this season. A title that is going away, it hurts. We're disgusted."

Speaking to France 3, he added:

"We knew they would do a lot of pressing. We didn't manage to pass their lines any faster. We made a few mistakes that cost us dearly.

"We know what we need to improve. It's a defeat that hurts because it's a cup match against our great rival. We wanted to return to Paris with victory and qualification.

"We have to do better, continue to work and go forward."

PSG manager

Christophe Galtier

also admitted that his players are disappointed, but said they must learn from this match.

"It's a big disappointment. The Coupe de France was one of our goals,"

he said.

"We were beaten by a great Marseille team. It was difficult. Once behind, we created very few favourable situations.

"In the preparation for this match, there was the ambition to qualify.

"We must learn lessons from this match. We didn't have enough chances in the second half, we have to be more dangerous.

"The players are disappointed, overwhelmed. It's not the time to talk angrily, we have to keep working, focus on ourselves."

Marseille midfielder Matteo Guendouzi said they produced an exceptional performance against PSG.

"We had everything today, the fans were exceptional, it was an exceptional match,"

Guendouzi said to beIN SPORTS.

"It's a Classique that we wanted to win, we deserve this victory. At the start of season it was a bit complicated, we changed our philosophy so it took time to adapt.

"Now everyone understands. Against PSG or any team, we are not afraid to press high. We are physically ready."

Guendouzi also insisted that Kylian Mbappe's absence did not play a part in their tactics for this match.

He said:

”No, as we have seen, in the first game [against PSG, a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat in October] we went very high.

"We have confidence in ourselves, confidence in our defenders. There are still a lot of matches before going on to win this Coupe de France. It's a team that will go with heart."
