Captain tells UEFA.com after last-gasp defeat: "Frankfurt were better than us today"
Annike Krahn at a loss to explain slow Paris start and admits late goal was "bitter"

Sabrina Delannoy, Paris defender
I think we lacked some clear-headedness, they were more clear-headed than us in attack at least. We managed to equalise, but then it was decided on details and it went in their favour. We could have scored from our last chance, but I think fate decided against us tonight.

I think we tried to do everything we could. We tried to put them in difficult situations, but Frankfurt were better than us today, and we have to learn from this defeat in order to build for next season. It was the first time for us. So I hope next year is our year for Paris Saint Germain.

Annike Krahn, Paris defender
We scored one goal fewer than them. But they had more chances, so we have to congratulate Frankfurt on winning the Champions League title. But it's bitter to concede a goal like that in the last minute.

Maybe you have to ask each player individually [why Paris started slowly]. I don't have an answer for that, I was wondering myself. I think in the first half, after we conceded the first goal, we still managed to score an equaliser from a chance we had, which was the only one in the whole match, unfortunately. But we played OK towards the end of the first half. You shouldn't concede a goal so close to the end of the match, but we conceded one. Frankfurt had more chances, but it's all pretty sad that we couldn't show what we can do.
