Notre-Dame on the chest and Madrid in the back of the head

There are these awesome camera settings from the roof of the Prince Park, an asbestos arena in the XVI Arrondissement. As you can see over the roofs of the city, the Eiffel tower in the VII. district. In the Zoom of the impression, which was a landmark next to the stadium. All together, Paris and his football club, "le PSG flows", as it would be a natural symbiosis. It will be of course never. The city is much too big in every respect: Ville Lumière, cradle of revolutions, the heart of the enlightenment. At each round there are thousands of terrific reasons to do something else than just a ride on the Métro, line 9 or 10, out in the Parc des Princes. An art exhibition, a retrospective at the cinema, a theatre, a promenade round a meal.

But since then, the Qataris, PSG have bought eight years ago, it was always at least as much about the city as to the Association. You want to radiate the glory of sun, with you, in your mirrors. As well on Easter Sunday evening, the team of coach Thomas Tuchel dispatch, the sixth title to pick up in the Qatari Era, without a fight, and at an early stage, because second-placed Lille had lost the connection definitely, because everything in the characters of Notre-had to, of course-the lady of the halfway down the burned Cathedral. Don't know everything.

The kick-off two firefighters, five hundred more were sitting in troubled as a guest on the Tribune Auteuil. On the Jersey chest is a graphical Interpretation of the Cathedral were adorned, instead of the sponsor, on the back of lady booth, instead of the game name for each "Notre". And at the top of the Auteuil, they had a plastic tarp spread out with the slogan of the city, the coat of arms of a Latin sentence: "Fluctuat nec mergitur" – for example: you may not vary, but is.

Now could there be musing about how well it all fits together, the Qataris and the Catholic Church, culturally, geopolitically, and anyway, this whole merging of the state from the Gulf with a European city, and your Association in terms of marketing, Soft Power, identity transfers. But no one asks a long time ago.

The dominance is grotesque

PSG is finally master, the spook is over. Three times in the past few weeks, it would have been possible, the pesky troubles and concentrate on the Cup final against Rennes on Saturday. But then they played a draw against Strasbourg, lost quite a sensational 1:5 against Lille, then 2:3 against Nantes. The title comes a bit very late, at 33. Round, five rounds before the end of the season. But he comes back with the grotesque, the distance to the Second: 19 points this time. Goal difference of Paris: plus 68.

The embarrassing performances against Lille and Nantes to act, you felt like a logical continuation of the actual disaster this season, failure in the Champions League. Only the performance in Europe, the success is measured, also the of the Trainer. Title in Ligue 1 belong to the natural inventory and the addition of almost 600 million Euro annual budget. Tuchel may be celebrated for the fact that he varies the game, that it interferes constantly tactically surrounded, player a re-organisation. A modern, innovative Coach, he is said to be always. "Libération": "Tuchel is smart, elegant, charming." And the need to create a German in France.

But nothing is worth the shame to be against a weakened Manchester United eliminated again in the first knockout round, having won the first leg 2:0. "L'equipe" writes, if Tuchel wool to leave a lasting mark, then he would have to win the Champions League. From the looks of it, he will stay and at least try. The contract he has extended until 2021. Tuchel was once the choice of Doha, the bet of the Emir personally. As he was obliged, it was said in Paris, bon, okay, an interesting man: But what has won? Its predecessor came with trophies and recognition: Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc, Unai Emery.

Tuchel rate convinced – at least on a national

But none of them made in the first year has a better Winning percentage than Tuchel, at least in Ligue 1: 81.8% of all games won PSG with the Germans. "Carletto" had been in the first year, only 57.9 per cent. But that was only the beginning of the Golf galactic times. Tuchel complained about the sports Director of the club, the Portuguese Antero Henrique, do not point him to the appropriate personnel.

In the summer, should it come to a Showdown between the two men: Tuchel would be a kind of "Manager à l'anglaise", a Trainer, as they are known in England, for almost everything – also and especially for the Transfers. "Tuchel wants the Power", was the headline in L'equipe recently. Some positions will have to be improved, says the. And a new Department of medicine would need it also. Again, the injuries piled up for the spring, so much so that at times only three of the ten players in the first squad were healthy.

but Even more important is that the two gentlemen stay in Paris, where the really big clubs would have their bright joy and for their services, some would spend of which indecent amount of money: Neymar Junior and Kylian Mbappé.

"I'm in Paris, I write with on this project."Kylian Mbappé

For Paris, the future of Mbappé, the boy from the suburb of Bondy has become, only 20 years old, a permanent obsession: is he? He goes to Real Madrid? After the Easter game against Monaco, in which he controls all of the Paris gates to the 3:1 beige, brilliant, and wonderfully light-footed, said Mbappé: "I'm in Paris, I write with on this project. I wish it is Real, that it is "Zizou" to the Trainer. I'm going to take a look at their games as a worshiper." On the TV. Of Zinédine Zidane is handed down that he would get him absolutely to Madrid, and from Mbappé you know that he is a "Madridista", deep inside.

it Was actually, it will still be a year? Longer probably not. Mbappé has always made it clear that PSG would be a bridge, a short stage in his career. As he belongs to Madrid, Barcelona or to England. The progression margin is enormous, it has shown this season. Mbappé took advantage of the long break due to an injury of Neymar, to unleash, to liberate, all paths were open to him. 30 goals in 27 Games. The "zlatanesk", it is now called, is the adjective for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, gave during five years, the God of Paris.

Everything for Neymar

"" would keep Ney the Qataris. Everything you do, every extravagance you let him go through with it. Even as he stood at Barça under contract, he missed no carnival in Rio, and no birthday of his sister Raffaela in the home: The 11. March – he was always an artificially erfoulte game lock value, or a made-up injury. At PSG but he is a king. The special treatment he accepts with Nonchalance, as if it were a stand proper compensation for the fact that he graced the town, the club, Yes the country with its unmerited presence. This is a few comrades to the spirit, is also a part of the audience. But Neymar is a world star.

there is Now the threat that Neymar will disappear in the shadow of the boy from Bondy.

5. The middle foot bone of the right foot is now healed, apparently, in a sustainable way. Against Monaco, Neymar played for the first time since January, a whole half. For the Cup final, he is set. There is a recovery, managed because of to the point, perfectly timed. In June, the Copa America is taking place, at home, in Brazil. It may be assumed that it is more important than anything else. Maybe it dawned on him during his long Pause, that was not such a good idea to go to Paris. In spite of a lot of money and privileges. World footballer, his big dream, he will be there, probably never.

And now threatens that he disappears in the shadow of the boy from Bondy. Mbappé is suddenly in front of the light, as it was then, in Barcelona, Leo Messi did. Not running, just perfect. Remains "Ney"? Or he goes to Real? Paris turns for once to Madrid. (Editorial Tamedia)
