‘We Truly Are Cursed’ – PSG Fans React to Cancellation of Ligue 1

Like a punch to the gut, French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe announced to the country that sporting events will not take place before September, which effectively canceled the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season.

We’re still waiting to hear if Paris Saint-Germain will be crowned champions or if the season will be voided as if it didn’t happen at all.

Then there’s the UEFA Champions League. PSG reached the quarter-finals with a thrilling win over Borussia Dortmund back in early March but that competition could be canceled as well.

At the very least, we know PSG will not be able to host a game at the Parc des Princes since UEFA would like to resume the tournament in August, a month before any sporting events can take place in France. Club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, has already stated that his team is ready to play wherever and whenever.

With all of this uncertainty, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that PSG supporters expressed a wave of emotion on social media. From Neymar Jr.’s bad luck to conspiracy theories, here are the best tweets I received after sharing the news that the Ligue 1 season would be canceled.
