Paris Saint-Germain routed Dijon by a 4-0 final score on Ligue 1 matchday 27. It was a convincing showing from PSG, especially as the side had just come off of the loss to AS Monaco.
For the PSG players, many of them aimed for a statement performance in the match. Among the players that urged for such a showing was Kylian Mbappe.
One camera feeds from Canal Plus picked up Mbappe’s halftime message during the fixture. In it, the French forward spoke to Marquinhos about the urgency to score more goals in the match in order to send a message to the other Ligue 1 title contenders.
“Marqui! Tell everyone that we’re staying in,” Mbappe exclaimed. “If we score five or six, it’s a message to the others. I go home with the match ball.”
PSG did not score five or more goals in the match and Mbappe did not notch a hat-trick to take the match ball. But still, it was a strong performance from PSG.
