Bruges: ‘I shouldn’t have shot’, Diagne looks back at his missed penalty against PSG

Sacred champion of Belgium with Bruges, Mbaye Diagne admitted on Saturday that he would not shoot a penalty against PSG in the Champions League (1-0). The Senegalese striker also regretted the long sidelines that followed the move.

The ordeal ended for Mbaye Diagne at the same time as the season in Belgium. Just crowned champion with Bruges, the Senegalese international has returned to Galatasaray and is not about to forget his last months spent outside-Quiévrain.

In the closet after stealing a penalty against PSG in the Champions League (1-0 for Paris) in early November, the 28-year-old told the Guardian about his misadventure on Saturday.

“I shouldn’t have taken the penalty”

The 28-year-old, who arrived in Bruges to start, played only 12 games. Despite his four league goals, he was a substitute. And wanted to show his talent against PSG… probably a little too much.

“I shouldn’t have taken the penalty,” said the player who passed by Ajaccio. But I was so excited to help the team that when I got it, I thought I had to score that goal that I was asked to do. It was just the effect of the adrenaline and my willingness to help the team.”

Diagne considered himself better than the incumbent players

Having been beaten by his coach Philippe Clement after his failed attempt and the Belgians’ 1-0 defeat to Paris, Mbaye Diagne tried to turn things around. To no avail. Despite his good training activity, he no longer played with Bruges.

“I apologised to the players and the manager but I was banned,” said Sadio Mané’s partner in the squad. I trained hard every day, but I was never called into the group again for the games. He chose players I respected but honestly didn’t have my level.”

After asking the technician for an explanation, the situation got even worse and Philippe Clement simply ignored it, according to Mbaye Diagne. This complicated season is now a thing of the past and the Senegalese is looking for a new challenge… away from Bruges.
