“This team looks like a luxury department store”


Philipp Lahm attacked the leaders of PSG. The former German player believes that Qatar only used the Parisian club for their projects “geopolitics”.

The elimination conceded by PSG against Bayern Munich is still a lot of talk in Germany. The duel of the round of 16 pitted two teams with radically opposed policies. On the one hand, Parisians who show a record deficit every year, on the other Bavarians who only spend the money they earn. Philipp Lahm does not mince his words with regard to the Qatari owners, whom he accuses of using their club.

“Qatar used Paris for its policy”

“We can only pity the many PSG supporters who made the trip to Munich. Their hope of seeing something be born before their eyes fades every year”he said in an interview with Die Zeit. The former German international denounces the strategy operated by the Parisian leaders: “This exorbitantly priced team is like a luxury department store, displaying precious pieces that everyone admires, but no one can afford. » Philipp Lahm finally thinks that Qatar has “used Paris, Europe and the players for its security policy and geopolitical ambitions”.

PSG is trying somehow to recover from the elimination conceded against Bayern Munich. Morale seems affected: Christophe Galtier’s team lost for the 7e time of the year against Stade Rennais (0-2), Sunday, in Ligue 1. It retains a 7-point lead over its runner-up, OM, in the standings, after 28 days. The number of points could allow him to keep his title at the end of the season. The technician, however, should not keep his job: his collaboration with Luis Campos, who asked for his arrival, clearly did not bear fruit.
