The emir of Qatar, Tamim ben Hamad Al-Thani , comes little to see his team, the PSG. Yours since 2011. According to Le Parisien accounts, 17 times, all competitions added. Since the dark night of the elimination against Manchester United he had not returned to his box in the Park of the Princes. Yesterday, his gladiators, absent the little princes of the squad, offered him a victory. Making the saying good, "the eye of the master fattens the horse."
All the colossal Qatari investment (222 million by Neymar , 180. Kilos by Mbappé ) has only one goal, to win the Champions League. Or at least, play a worthy role. If last year he contemplated with his own eyes the humiliation suffered at the feet of a United of circumstances, the former was Madrid the executioner. Twice in eighths.
It is not that the team of the French capital is a coconut of European competitions. But, before the arrival of the Qatari money, he won a Recopa and played five consecutive semifinals in the 90s. In the Qatari reign, the furthest they have come has been to fourths, twice, with Carlo Ancelotti on the bench.
Some have argued that the emir is bad. But statistics deny it. With last night, there are 13 wins by three draws and two losses. Is this the PSG season? We will see in May. The premiere is promising. Although it is against a smaller Madrid.
Three flares in the Auteil gallery greeted Di María's first goal. And the drums no longer stopped and the design banners were shaken. Because everything here has little tradition.
Of course, the speaker becomes disillusioned and manages the staff to copy the last names of the players. And the initial typhoon is great in size. And presumptuous in content:
The silhouette of the stadium (ancient and ugly) appeared amid sacred monuments such as Notre Dame, the Eiffel tower, the Arc de Triomphe and (ahem) le. Moulin Rouge
Below, the motto: "A mythical stadium, a historic city: Paris is magical. With the colors of the team (and France) bleu, blanc, rouge, in the background. For one night, marketing became a reality. With the help of a stone guest who does have a legendary record.
The emir of Qatar, it is said, football is interested in fairness. The PSG is a public relations tool of a liliputian state on the surface but with giant ambitions.
Al Thani will be received today by the President of the Republic. Emmanuel Macron has not been loved by the compliments and does not appear in the Park of the Princes. Unlike one of his predecessors, Nicolas Sarkozy . However, Macron has invited him to eat at Elíseo.
Last night, in the Parque de los Príncipes, Madrid had tea in the appetizer of the Champions League. We'll see, the rest of the menu. At the moment, he has broken the badge.
