Sil­ver­ware quest is a big deal for Jozo

it­self, Simunovic was a tad frus­trated, but also prag­matic. The im­pos­ing cen­tre-half was caught some­where be­tween ac­cep­tance at the for­mi­da­ble op­po­si­tion Celtic faced, while also be­liev­ing the hosts could have done more to at least slow down the French march to vic­tory.

He said: “It was a very tough game for us, es­pe­cially at the start be­cause we didn’t play well. The sec­ond half we were bet­ter but the score­line showed ev­ery­thing.

“We can learn a lot of things. We will anal­y­sis things with the coach and make sure we are at our best for the next game. We have to look for­ward and learn from this type of game. That is the most im­por­tant thing.

“We wanted to play our game but they are such a good team.

“In the end it could have been a dif­fer­ent re­sult but now we have to look for­ward and do bet­ter.”

Simunovic played a sig­nif­i­cant part in the down­fall of his team on Tues­day night.

With the game poised at 2-0, it was his tug on Edin­son Ca­vani that gifted PSG the chance to make it 3-0 to kill off the game. In truth, though, it was al­ready an uphill task by that point.

He added: “Ca­vani is a top striker and the ref­eree gave the penalty and that is that.”
