PSG: The mea culpa of Nasser Al Khelaïfi before Bayern
For the president of Paris Saint-Germain, one of QSI’s big mistakes was to make a victory in the Champions League his priority upon his arrival. Despite the workforce available to Christophe Galtier, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi does not want to get carried away this season regarding this coronation in the European Cup. “I already said it before the season. Step by step. The end of the World Cup already… then Ligue 1. And in February, we will face Bayern. […] Maybe you are right. It’s not a shame to say that we made mistakes. It must also be said that our club is bigger than that. There are women, judo, handball…”the Qatari leader told The Team.
As a reminder, PSG were knocked out in the knockout stages of the Champions League by Real Madrid last season. Winners in the first leg, the Parisians had suffered a comeback on the return to Santiago Bernabeu. It remains to be seen whether they will take that step against Bayern this season.
