It is an understatement to say that the words of the first Parisian interviewed by Canal + after the draw conceded this Sunday in Rennes (1-1) and probably synonymous with farewell to the title, surprised.
“We were unlucky,” said Moïse Kean.
The striker's speech almost echoed the words of Ander Herrera or Marco Verratti on Tuesday after the elimination against Manchester City in the Champions League semi-final.
Kean added: “We played very well but we missed the last move”.
When asked if the title was lost, his eyes widened: “Why lost?
We still believe in it… It's up to us to win all our games.
It will take a miracle but we will give 100%.

The arrival of Marquinhos would give a different tone to the analysis of the evening and the Parisian balance sheet.
The captain immediately recognized that with this draw the Parisians had just taken a moral blow.
“We are not going to lose our faith,” he added.
But when you're PSG, you have to do a lot better than that.
There is therefore no question of betting on a misstep from Lille during the last two days.
“First we have to think about us, do better things, win games and then we'll see what we can do,” he says.
"We did not deserve the three points"
And Marquinhos to mention one of the major problems this season for PSG: the defeats at home (against Nantes, Marseille, Lille, Monaco, Lyon). “We lost games that should not be lost, especially at home, he says. There we count the points and we start to look at all those that we have missed. "He drives home the point:" It is unacceptable when you are the PSG to let the points go. We lead 1-0, 2-0 and the teams come back. It happens once or twice, but now it starts to do a lot. We have to do a lot better at the end of the season and start talking to each other well for next season. "As for the next meetings, Marquinhos ensures:" We will play what we have left to play. We have a Coupe de France to go for and the championship to continue to put pressure on Lille. "
For his part, Mauricio Pochettino, disappointed, recognized that his team did not deserve to win in Brittany. "We can say that we were not better than Rennes," he said at a press conference. We didn't deserve the three points, that's all. "Before analyzing:" It's a season with ups and downs. This 4 month period has given us a lot of information on how to help the players and the club for the future. As for knowing if Paris had lost the title? "No, not yet," he retorted. In football, a lot can happen. "
