“What is the value of the Parc des Princes without PSG? Zero”

During a long interview with Jérôme Rothen in Rothen ignites at the RMC, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, the president of PSG returned to the pass of arms, which opposes him the city hall of Paris around the Parc des Princes.

Although Nasser Al-Khelaïfi is in Qatar during the World Cup, he has rarely been so present in the discussions at the town hall in Paris. Questioning the standoff over PSG’s future at the Parc des Princes. Both Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and the mayor of Paris have sent spades through the media since the start of the competition. To develop, PSG would like to expand the stadium that belongs to Paris City Hall (but which it has already paid more than 80 million to renovate for Euro 2016). PSG therefore plans to buy the Parc des Princes, but at a price that does not satisfy Paris City Hall, which responds briefly: “The park so smaller than Paredes?”

The price requested by Paris City Hall (more than 350 million is considered prohibitive by PSG). In Rothen ignited, Nasser al-Khelaïfi gave a layer and said he had no intention of leaving the Parc des Princes. “For me, option 1 is to live at the Parc des princes. Option 2: live at the Parc des princes. Option 3: live at the Parc des princes. But if the mayor of Paris or the city of Paris does not want don I will not stay, will not do something for us… It’s like you invite me to your show, but I’m not coming in. I don’t want to talk about it either, but I know it’s “is a hot topic for the media. We are investing in the stadium. For EC 2016, we paid something very important. We invested more than 80 million in the stadium. We do the maximum with the capacity we have in the stadium. Thirdly, we have a fight two or three years ago, Jean-Claude Blanc calls me and says: “We have a problem with the Parc des Princes. He only says that the roof can fall off. We blocked two thousand seats , so people wouldn’t come because it was dangerous. Safety is the most important thing to me.”

“I ask that the city of Paris also respects us”

“We don’t want to put 500 or 600 million on another stadium, he continues. For us, the most important thing is the pitch. We don’t want to make money with this stadium, we don’t want to go to shopping center What is the value of the Parc des Princes without PSG? Zero. I say that immediately. And when I’m told 350, I don’t know what, it’s not my problem if you want to shop, buildings, real estate, apartments maybe, but for us it’s just sports . What have we done for the city of Paris? How many people come to see Kylian, Messi and Neymar? What taxes did we pay? The taxes? We did a lot.”

“Me, I have great respect for the mayor of Paris. I have a very good relationship with her. But I ask that the city of Paris also respects us”, concludes the leader. Continuation of negotiations after the WC.
