- PSG players are yet to recover mentally after Man United knocked them out of the UCL claims Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
- The former Stoke forward Choupo-Moting claims there is still tension with fans despite thrashing Dijon 4-0 last weekend
- Choupo-Moting stressed the players must work hard to repair the damaged relationship with fans
Paris Saint-Germain stars are battling a psychological warfare to overcome their ouster from the Champions League by Manchester United.
The French giants crumbled in the second-leg of the Champions League yet again in front of their own supporters.
The UK Sun claim PSG’s squad members are psychologically down after surrendering a 2-0 away win to fall 3-1 on their home ground as they bowed out of the Champions League.
The defeat saw PSG exit the Champions League at the round of 16 stage in three consecutive times.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting revealed PSG fans are still unhappy with the players despite a 4-0 win over Dijon last Sunday.
"The only thing we can do is keep playing and give everything for this club, both for us and for the fans.
"Winning 4-0 was a good reaction, although we cannot erase what happened. It's still very, very bad. It's normal that it's still in our heads.
"The atmosphere was not good, because we are always very disappointed. It is very difficult to find the right words to explain what happened.
"It shows on the face of each player. It's hard, but we have to keep going,” the former Stoke City ace was quoted as saying.
Interestingly, additional reports suggested that the club’s ultra's mocked the Ligue 1 champions in a letter as "the laughing stock of Europe."
Choupo-Moting insists PSG squad members must endeavour to improve on their relationship with fans as soon as possible.
"They must know that we need them. They will think that these are just words, because we cannot erase what happened. Even I do not have the words to explain the defeat against Manchester United.
"It hurts even more because, before this match, everything was good, we had a very good season. We have a good team, with a good atmosphere and great fans. It's very painful that a single match provides this feeling,” Choupo-Moting submitted.
