Blaise Matuidi hasn’t worn a Paris Saint-Germain shirt since 2017 but he is still fondly remembered by supporters.
Now a midfielder for Juventus FC, Matuidi is the second player at the club to test positive for the coronavirus according to their official website. Daniele Rugani was the first Juventus player to test positive for the virus earlier this month as reported by the BBC.
Matuidi joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2011 from AS Saint-Étienne and went on to appear in 295 matches where he scored 33 goals and recorded 28 assists.
The 32-year-old was a fan-favorite at the Parc des Princes for his tireless work rate. His first touch wasn’t always the best but he was more than capable of moments of brilliance.
One of the Frenchman’s best moments at the club was when he scored against Olympique de Marseille in 2015 at the Stade Vélodrome. I still remember him running to celebrate while pounding the PSG badge on his shirt with his fist.
