Ligue 1: We’ll lose title too – Marquinhos warns PSG players

Paris Saint-Germain captain, Marquinhos has warned his teammates that they will lose the French Ligue 1 title too unless they show another mentality.

Marquinhos gave the warning after PSG’s 3-0 Ligue 1 defeat to Monaco over the weekend.

Recall that two goals from Wissam Ben Yedder and a strike from Kevin Volland ensured Monaco defeated PSG.

Also, PSG was recently eliminated from the Champions League in the round of 16 clashes after losing 3-2 to Real Madrid on aggregate.

“If you look at the continuity of events, yes, it hurts everyone: the fans, us players. There was a lot of expectation after the very good first game at the Parc,” the Brazilian said at his post-match press conference.

“It’s a defeat that hurts us, but we have other goals to achieve. We only have Ligue 1 left. We must show another mentality, because otherwise, we will lose this title too.”

The result against Monaco means PSG are still on top of the Ligue 1 table with 65 points from 29 games.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have 12 points ahead of second position, Marseille.
