Kylian Mbappe ended his time with PSG by winning the Coupe de France after a 2-1 victory over Lyon, but admits his “heart aches” as he leaves.

The 25-year-old will leave the Parisian giants as a free agent this summer and is almost certainly destined to join Real Madrid.

But first-half goals from Ousmane Dembélé and Fabián Ruiz ensured PSG won the French Cup in Mbappé’s farewell match and completed a domestic treble this season.

Mbappé, PSG’s all-time top scorer, failed to find the net in his final game for the club, leaving his record at 256 goals in 308 appearances during his seven years.

‘I’ve been thinking a lot over the last few years. Saying it’s all over makes my heart ache a little. “What I have had here I will not find anywhere else,” Mbappé said.

‘It has been a wonderful evening and a wonderful season. I hope the children continue watching PSG. We have tried to excite people, give young people the opportunity to play for PSG. I hope more young people want to leave their mark here.”

The Ligue 1 and French Super Cup champions dominated the first half at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille to secure their record-extending 15th Cup title and their first trophy in the competition since 2021.

Dembélé put PSG ahead in the 23rd minute, when Nuno Mendes’ cross found him unmarked in the six-yard box to calmly head in, and Ruiz doubled the lead with a shot from a tight angle at the second attempt.

Lyon pulled one back 10 minutes into the second half thanks to Jake O’Brien’s header from a corner before PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma made a magnificent save minutes later.
