“Paris Saint-Germain has the firm conviction that football is a sport for all. I have been constant on this point from the very beginning. It must be remembered that as a football club, we are a family and a community, whose heart is our supporters. We must remember this. There is a clear need to evolve the existing UEFA competition model, and the proposal presented yesterday by UEFA, which concludes 24 months in-depth consultation of the entire European football landscape, goes in this direction.
We believe that any proposal without the support of UEFA – an organization which has strived to advance the interests of European football for almost 70 years – does not solve the problems the football community is currently facing, but is at stake. contrary motivated by personal interests. Paris Saint-Germain will continue to work with UEFA, the European Club Association and all stakeholders in European football on the basis of the principles of good faith, dignity and respect for each other “.
