Marco Veratti and Marquinhos did not applaud the absence of PSG Ultras as the players won a record tenth title against Lens (1-1) on the lawn of the Parc des Princes.
Paris Saint-Germain won their tenth title in their history against Lens (1-1) this Saturday, equaling Saint-Etienne’s record, in an atmosphere that was anything but celebration. The atmosphere was not worthy of the achievement, which is symbolized by a malaise that is only growing among a few fans and the management.
“It’s a shame for the atmosphere, but football is our passion, we started at a very young age. We try to have as much fun as possible, it’s a shame it’s not with the supporters, but We have to make do with it”, declared Marquinhos, who sounded a bit off the Canal+’s microphone.
“At some point, you have to move on”
The happy Marco Verratti felt the same understanding as a child: “It’s fantastic. When you start football, you dream of winning a very high level championship. It’s my eighth and it’s something I’ve tried.” Never would have imagined it when I was younger. It will always be in my heart,” said the little Italian. Away from his supporters, with whom he seems to be broken, the Parisians seemed very alone as they raised their arms skyward. Members of the Collectif Ultras Paris have long stood outside the Parc des Princes to celebrate the title.
“It’s something that I don’t understand, we always try, by heart, explained Marco Verratti. We are normal people, we can have good or bad times … We want to win everything I know they were disappointed in Madrid (Elimination in the Champions League, editor’s note), but at some point you have to move on.”
