Rio Ferdinand Praises Borussia Dortmund’s Defense in Mbappe-Shutdown as PSG Lose

Rio Ferdinand

Rio Ferdinand, the former England defender, commented that Borussia Dortmund did a great job keeping Kylian Mbappe in check during their 1-0 win against Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Mbappe, who didn’t score in either of the two matches, saw his team lose the series 2-0 on aggregate.

Given that Mbappe is expected to leave PSG, this was likely his last European appearance for the French club.

Ferdinand, talking to TNT Sports, mentioned:

“This is unusual for Kylian Mbappe. We are accustomed to seeing him at the biggest stage.

“All through his career he has seemed to step up, but over the two legs he has been very subdued.

“You have to give Dortmund massive credit. They didn’t allow Mbappe to get one v one.

“Those big players find something when they get into space. The chance at the end, the volley, that was a chance for him to be clinical.

“But, more credit goes to the team in yellow, Dortmund. The manager Edin Terzic deserves massive credit.”
