According to Youri Djorkaeff, PSG is a perfect club to play football, because all of France, except the supporters, hates the club in the capital.
It is not uncommon to hear former players offer an analysis on the clubs in which they have played. This is the case of Youri Djorkaeff who raised a point rarely discussed for the daily The country. The winner of the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1996 with Paris responded to critics of the PSG going in their direction.
The former Blue believes that evolving for the club of the capital makes it possible to touch the finger a unique competitiveness in the five big championships, because of the hatred it arouses in France: ” PSG are a young club, yes, but they have a very good DNA. It is a great place to play soccer. Because when you play for PSG, you fight against the rest of France. People hate PSG. “
Unique in France and Europe
The 1998 world champion then supported his analysis by arguing that the situation of Paris Saint-Germain is unlike any other club in Europe: ” Spain is shared between Madrid and Barcelona. In France, there are people who love Marseille. But those who are not Marseillais do not hate him, they do not care. Ditto for Lyon. But with PSG, no. And it is unique. »
Youri Djorkaeff’s reasoning follows on from that of the Parisian players after the matches. Like Marco Verratti after the draw against Bruges (1-1), many Parisians have already claimed that their evening opponents had delivered their best performance.
