In an interview at brandthe president of PSG returned to the conflict between him and the city of Paris concerning the future of the Parc des Princes.
the duel between the leaders of PSG and the town hall of Paris concerning the future of the Parc des Princes continues. While the club would like to become the owner, the city preferred to keep it in its heritage and keep the lease system in force. Present in Doha to follow the World Cup in QatarPresident Nasser al Khelaïfi gave an interview to brand in which he wanted to clarify his team’s intentions regarding his historic enclosure. “I love the Parc des Princes, it’s our story. […] Our preferred option is to stay, but I believe the City Council does not want us to stay. They pressure us to leave“, he laments.
“We have been discussing with them for five years. Each time, the same false promises. We are tired“, continues the Qatari. A takeover of the Parc des Princes would allow PSG to invest large sums to modernize it and increase its reception capacity. If no agreement is reached with the Town Hall, the president does not hide that the club could change house. “We are studying other alternatives because I believe that we are no longer welcome at the Parc des Princes. They play with us and that tires us.“The two avenues considered would be the construction of another stadium and the purchase of the Stade de France, property of the State.
Also asked about the rumor that Qatar would disengage from PSG after the World Cup, Nasser replied bluntly: “It makes me laugh, I don’t even know if I should answer because it looks like a joke. We are only at the beginning of the story between QSI (Qatar Sports Investments) and PSG“. It remains to be seen whether this story will continue at the Parc des Princes or elsewhere.
