Eintracht Frankfurt Club Chief Rips PSG for Summer Transfer Window Spending

Last week, Paris Saint-Germain faced criticism from Borussia Dortmund Hans-Joachim Watzke, where he stated that potentially working at the capital club isn’t his cup of tea. Now another Bundesliga club chief is taking shots at the French giants.

In an interview with Sky Sports (via Canal Supporters), Philip Holzer, chairman of the supervisory board of Eintracht Frankfurt, criticized the Ligue 1 side for their summer transfer window spending. 

“Just look at the transfer market this summer. You can clearly see that Covid is hitting traditional clubs much harder. Who is at the forefront of spending? RB Leipzig, but they also brought in some money. And then the PSG directly,” Holzer said.

“It’s an evolution that I don’t like at all. In my opinion, PSG is the club that many would least like to see win the Champions League. Chelsea is also investing heavily, as are Liverpool. But even Bayern has problems, and they can only buy players by selling. Inter Milan must generate 100 million in transfer income. It is all very difficult. I’ve never seen a transfer market like this year; it’s basically just sellers.”

Again, all the capital club’s spending is through the free transfer market, and the only player they’ve played a transfer sum is for Achraf Hakimi. Furthermore, Les Parisiens are beginning to offload players, which is why they sold Mitchel Bakker to Bayer Leverkusen to offset any purchases they’ve made this summer.

Other clubs such as Manchester United have spent a significant amount of money on Jadon Sancho and Raphaël Varane. Nonetheless, there’s no mention there from the Frankfurt club chief, but perhaps Holzer didn’t want to ruffle any feathers there.
