PSG: Nasser Al-Khelaïfi insists, "I think we are no longer welcome at the Parc des Princes"


The president of PSG has given a layer on the file of the Park with Marca. He again charges the town hall of Paris, which he accuses of blocking

It's a new rant, a new message passed through the international media for the president of PSG, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi.

Currently in Doha for the World Cup, he had already given an interview on November 23 to the American media Bloomberg, bringing up the endless question of the sale of the Parc des Princes.

After the response from the town hall of Paris, in particular that of his sports assistant Pierre Rabadan in our columns, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi gave the cover.

In an interview with the Spanish daily Marca, he did not beat around the bush: “Our first option is to stay, but I don't think the City Council wants us to stay.

They are pressuring us to leave.

We have been fighting with them for five years.

Every time, it's the same false promises: today, tomorrow, this election, the next (...) The City Council thinks we are joking, but we are not and we are very serious about others options.

We are looking for other alternatives because I think we are no longer welcome at the Parc des Princes.

They play with us and we are tired of it.


Once again, Al-Khelaïfi advances the economic argument in this case.

“Some 80 million euros have been invested in the stadium out of our pocket, but it is not our stadium.

Who else would?

We need to increase our revenue, have a better stadium for our fans, and have more fans coming than we can accommodate.


In this interview, "NAK" also mentioned other issues related to the club.

That of the buyout of a minority share by an outside investor, in particular, when the club is valued at 4 billion euros: “There is significant interest from investors for the club and it is fantastic.

They want to have minority stakes and we talk to them about it very openly.


On the "Super League" also, while European justice must deliver its verdict on December 15 on the dispute between its organizers and UEFA: "The truth is that I am sad for them because they have shown on many occasions that 'they don't understand football and its ecosystem.

Football is not a legal contract, it is a social contract.

When fans protested in the streets over the launch and failure of the not-so-Super League, they weren't shouting at legal commitments.
