Herrera Calls PSG’s Ligue 1 Championship Bitter Sweet

On Thursday, Paris Saint-Germain claimed their ninth Ligue 1 title in club history thanks to the best points-by-match average of any other team the top division of French football.

With the coronavirus pandemic still spreading throughout the country, the French government had no choice but to bar any sporting events from taking place before September.

That decision led to Ligue 1 being canceled and PSG ultimately being crowned champions. It’s not exactly the way the players wanted to win the trophy as Ander Herrera explained on Twitter.

“Very sweet and bitter taste to be champion this way, I would have liked to be able to finish the great work that we had started and to be able to celebrate this title on the field with my teammates and our fans.”

Herrera continued:

“I would like to thank the club, my fantastic teammates and our supporters who have accompanied us both at the Parc des Princes and at each away game. Finally I would like to dedicate this title to the people who are fighting in our city Paris, against this pandemic. THANK YOU.”

The entire season didn’t go as Herrera had planned. After arriving from Manchester United on a free transfer, the Spain international only featured in 18 total matches for PSG with a goal and an assist to his name.

With four more years left in his contract, hopefully, the 30-year-old can have a bounceback season when things start up again.
