'Utd loss the biggest joke in football'


Paris Saint-Germain's UEFA Champions League exit to Manchester United has been described as the 'biggest joke in the history of football' ranking worse than the FC Barcelona capitulation in 2017.
PSG eased to a 2-0 victory over the Premier League side in the first-leg and were touted as favourites for the title this season due to their incredible domestic form led by wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.
However, a injury-hit United squad managed to do the unthinkable by overturning the result at the Parc des Princess with Marcus Rashford netting the decisive goal from a late penalty awarded by VAR for a handball by defender Presnel Kimpembe.
"It was the biggest joke in the history of football," wing-back Thomas Meunier told Le Parisien. "I would have bet €1 million that we would not lose.
"They did not even have chances and they still scored three goals. It was even more shocking than Barcelona."
The Belgium international went on to lament the mental block Les Parisians find themselves in after the shortcomings in Europe's elite club competition.
"The Champions League is still the major problem," he explained.
"Winning this competition and being part of the big ones like Real Madrid and Barca, which is what a lot of international communication has focused on, will take a long time. PSG is a club that is growing."
