    Jamie Carragher couldn’t hide his resentment for PSG after they were knocked out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

    PSG travelled to the Allianz Arena with a tough task on their hands – having to overturn a 1-0 defeat in Paris after their former youngster Kingsley Coman earned the Bundesliga champions a first-leg lead to defend.

    But again the Parisiens came up short with second-half goals from former striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Serge Gnabry saw Bayern take a 2-0 victory on the night – sailing through 3-0 on aggregate.

    It’s now the fifth time in seven years that the French capital’s side have been knocked out in the round of 16, as their team of superstars are forced to wait at least another year to lift the elusive trophy.

    Whilst pressure already on manager Christophe Galtier’s job at the Parc des Princes will undoubtedly weigh even greater after PSG’s Champions League dream crashed and burned again.

    Following the full-time whistle, the Liverpool legend was left revelling in more heartbreak for Kylian Mbappe and co. by saying he was ‘delighted’ at the French sides' exit on CBS Sports’ coverage.

    “What I’ve seen unfold… I mean, to be honest, I’m delighted PSG have gone out,” Carragher said.

    “I am. I just don’t like the whole set-up, everything about it. It’s not a team, it’s just a mess.

    “Five years out of seven they’ve gone out of the last 16. They spent more money than anyone, they’ve got the best players in the world.

    “And you know what? It’s brilliant because it just tells you how important it is to be a team. I think that’s really important in football.

    “We love individuals within a team, but that’s not a team.”

    PSG still remain the dominant side in Ligue 1 – sitting top of the pile by eight points, but another early Champions League exit will ask more severe questions of the Parisiens mentality.
