Kean: 'Unforgettable night'

Moise Kean is relishing ‘an unforgettable night’ after he scored in PSG’s 4-1 Champions League victory over Barcelona at Camp Nou.

“It’s certainly an unforgettable night, my first time in this great stadium. It’s very exciting,” the striker told Sky Sport Italia.

“This gives me the strength to keep working hard and believing in my dreams, because they can come true.

“I always try to do better, I train every day with the incredible staff who help me improve in every way, and we can see the results.”

It’s a very Italian PSG, because today Kean scored, while Marco Verratti and Alessandro Florenzi provided assists for the Kylian Mbappé hat-trick.

“Fortunately, we have Alessandro and Marco to help me when I need to speak French. We make a good team.”

Mauricio Pochettino took over from Thomas Tuchel and today tried out Verratti as a trequartista in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

“We’ve transformed the style of football, we are more united and he gives us a team spirit, which is the most important thing.”

Kean turns 21 soon and has scored 14 goals in 25 competitive games for PSG, during his loan from Everton, so is he sending a message to Italy coach Roberto Mancini?

“I hope Mancini watched the game! I’ll be ready for whatever happens in the Euros.”

Evidently Barca have a problem with Italians, as their last Champions League home fixture was a 3-0 defeat to Juventus in the group stage.

It’s the first time in their history that the Blaugrana have lost back-to-back European home games and the first time they’ve conceded at least three goals in two consecutive Camp Nou continental clashes.
