The saddest Ligue 1 for PSG


April 23 when PSG celebrated, a month before the end of the season, the bitterest league in memory. A rather strange, bitter feeling. Almost more for a matter of protocol than genuine interest. The strange case of France, a championship without glamor that does not serve as mitigation in case of failure in the Champions League. Taken by storm at the Bernabéu, Pochettino was unable to survive despite the club’s tenth Ligue 1 lift.

Even though the Argentine coach insisted on valuing the league week after week, the story had little impact on the fans. The stands, exhausted after so many obstacles in Europe, chose to express their discomfort through an eerie silence. From the usual noise to absolutely nothing. The radicals left their seats in protest at the premature elimination from the Champions League, PSG’s great attraction.

It was a time defined by tension. Messi, who arrived a few months earlier as a hero, received whistles from his own fans for the first time in his career. Neymar was the easy target and Mbappé was the only one saved from the burn, mainly because his future was still up in the air. His renewal or, rather, his rejection of Real Madrid, is perhaps the best news for a PSG that proudly won that war.

Ligue 1 doesn’t have much history because no other team can upset the Parisian team. Marseille fell early, unable to keep pace with a PSG team that finished fifteen points ahead. Mbappé, in the middle of the race with Ben Yedder to reach the pichichi, prevailed thanks to the last day in which he scored three goals for a total of 28. The feeling, however, was all the time that there was not enough after the KO in Champions.

The first to fall was Leonardo. Al Khelaifi lost confidence in his sports director, who left through the back door, without making a sound. He made a sticker album but forgot to build a competitive team. The second was Pochettino, although his farewell was delayed for several weeks until he reached an agreement with PSG about his arrangement. Despite drawing Saint-Étienne with ten Ligue 1s, it was the saddest in Paris history.
