France has a villain.
Well, several if we count the terrorists, but that’s not the issue.
Ligue 1 has a big problem: PSG. The same team that raises all the cups, disarms teams in the league and takes all the lights.
It is the only tournament that has a champion before starting. Not even in Germany happens.
The economic power and immunity of FIFA make them untouchable for two reasons: they are not affected by sanctions and, literally, no one in France can touch them. They do not reach them.
It is still amazing what Monaco did. That nostalgic Monaco.
At the end of the day, housing a team of this magnitude ends up affecting the environment. Even the same team suffers. There is no competitive rival for weeks, then they face one in the Champions League and things do not always go well. The lack of competitiveness condemns.
Why has not PSG been able to do something outstanding in the Champions?
Everything makes sense.
It is difficult for this to change immediately. Other millionaire investors will arrive, not all will have the same success. Few projects will reach a level apt to compete; the players are very young and France is becoming one of the most interesting markets.
In fact, it’s a matter of hours before they dismantle Lyon.
For its part, the product, the famous product, is affected. It is not so attractive a league where the first of the table can get five goals in the first half to the second.
For scouting? One of the best tournaments Spectators? Mmmm … Do you like England?
The PSG has a great goal: the Champions. They are already villains in their country, but they still can not be on the continent. They do not seem like a serious rival. And this is a problem.
The possible departures of Mbappé and Neymar will not affect much, considering that there will be around 500 million.
They are simply villains. And they finished with the few heroes in the area.
Now, do they have to change sides?
