Lucas regrets City defeat

Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura admits getting knocked out of the Champions League by Manchester City was a bitter pill to swallow.

The Brazil international was happy with his performances on a personal level and believes PSG achieved some extraordinary things last season.

"It was promising. I think I made some good progress, and I scored more goals. I had some amazing experiences during the season and I learnt a lot," he told the club's official website. "It's positive. I love this club and I'm happy with the season I put in.

"In order to make history, you have to do some out-of-the-ordinary, incredible things. I think we managed to do that. I signed here to win titles and make a mark in the club's history. My team-mates and I are in the process of doing just that.

"We have won four league titles in a row. That's magnificent because there are no words to describe what you feel when you win a title, and even less so when you do it with eight matches to spare, and by such a huge margin."

However, Les Parisiens once again failed to impress in the Champions League, which is a title their owners are desperate to win, after being knocked out of Europe's elite club competition by City.

"The two matches against Manchester City, of course. We weren't at our best," Lucas added. "I don't know how to explain it, but we weren't really Paris Saint-Germain.

"We couldn't manage to repeat what we had done against Chelsea and in all our other Champions League matches. We didn't impose our game, and we paid for it.

"It's a shame, but that's how the Champions League is. To make it through, you have to be at your best. We will have to keep that in mind for next season. But I'm sure that Paris Saint-Germain is on the right track. I'm a believer."
