Jerome Rothen, a former Paris Saint-Germain player, has been in favor of changing the Paris logo lineup, defending the departure of Neymar and Messi.
“If I were a sporting director, I would have made a tough decision. I would rebuild a group with another mindset. That means you would have to change dozens of players. It’s a lot, but with the country money I think I can say to some, ‘Okay, you can go.’” They don’t want it, a check is signed and the exit door is indicated.”
“There are good players at the national level who can integrate a collective project. And if you can renew with Mbappe, that would be great. Next to him, I will not rely on Neymar, I will ask him to leave. I don’t want him to stay, given his lack of commitment and opportunities. Messi is a big question mark, because you can’t fire everyone either. There are two in high salaries. Messi I think we can keep him. Between Neymar and Messi, if anyone can live in Mbappe’s shadow, it’s Messi. Neymar is not ready for that, as you can see in his position. If you have to take one, you take Macy’s. But if it were me, I would release the two,” stressed the 44-year-old former player.
