PSG: Qatar, Mbapp … The confidences of Blanc – archyde

An essential element of the organization chart of Paris Saint-Germain, Jean-Claude Blanc explained himself at length in the podcast Pause. The opportunity for the general manager of the capital club to reassure on the role of QSI, but also to congratulate Kylian Mbapp following his extension.

Jean-Claude Blanc remains essential to PSG.

Jean-Claude Blanc is not the best known of the leaders of Paris Saint-Germain. But it is probably the most important. In office since October 2011, the former president of Juventus has done quite an exceptional job of making the capital club one of the main brands in world football. Man of confidence of QSI, the French necessarily knows a lot behind the scenes of the champion of France. And he did not hesitate to reassure the supporters.

No disengagement from Qatar

Indeed, rumors about a possible withdrawal from Qatar after the World Cup have swelled in recent weeks. Insubstantial hallway noises depending on the main interested party. I have no indication in this sense and the desire to build Paris for a long time has been stated several times by Nasser. We are in the process of building an absolutely extraordinary training center near Paris. It will be delivered in a year, in 2023. (…) at the time, PSG, it was around 90 million euros in turnover, a club with average structures in a flagship city. Today, it has been made a global brand. And we spent around 700 million euros at the end of the season we just finished said the 59-year-old man for the Pause podcast.

For Blanc, the Qataris have no interest in letting go of PSG after more than a decade of in-depth work. They bought the club between 50 and 100 million euros and the latest valuation that came out is more between 3.2 and 3.5 billion. Their willingness to invest is reasoned. It’s treated as a strategic investment, like they have others. It’s totally driven by Nasser Al-Khelafi. He’s the one driving it. I think their investment in football combines both the passion and the media power that this sport represents. Among the investments made, Paris Saint-Germain are undoubtedly in the right place, given the formidable valuation of the club today said White.

Mbapp, this patriot

Among the choices of which the businessman is proud, the extension for three years of Kylian Mbapp’s contract. While he was promised to Real Madrid, the French striker decided to swear loyalty to the capital club. A very strong choice according to Blanc. I think he is very sincere when he talks about this patriotic side. Winning in France, Paris, has a different flavor than doing it in another club. I take it at face value. I really like Kylian, who I have seen grow and transform into a leader in the locker room over the past five years. continued the ex-boss of the Old Lady.

I am very happy that he is continuing with us. I really admire his career and the way he manages it with those around him. It’s a very good signal and we saw the immediate impact. Everyone projected themselves into the next seasons to say: ‘This team, which gives us a lot of emotions, we want to follow it and love it. We will do great things together’ , added the native of Chambry. Next objective for the leaders of the PSG: to find the right coach to represent the project. A task that promises to be much more difficult than expected…
