PSG Talking Podcast: Champions of France; Where is Neymar?

Paris Saint-Germain officially became the most successful club in France by winning its 11th Ligue 1 title. Unfortunately, not everyone thought that occasion was important enough to be in attendance.

On this episode of PSG Talking, I’m joined by Ethan from PSG Fan Club Boise to discuss PSG’s 1-1 draw over RC Strasbourg Alsace at the Stade de la Meinau Strasbourg that led to them being crowned champions of France. We also discuss the potential managers to replace Christophe Galtier and the latest transfer rumors.

Up first, Ethan and I share why a Ligue 1 title is still something worth celebrating even if the season as a whole has been disappointing for PSG supporters.

We then dive into the draw against Strasbourg, which once again saw a former PSG player score against his own club. We question whether El Chadaille Bitshiabu is worth keeping in the squad next season or loaning out for more experience. We also come to the conclusion that signing a quality backup goalkeeper to keep pressure on Gianluigi Donnarumma would be a good thing.

In the celebration of the Ligue 1 title, one player who was absent was Neymar Jr. While Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes, Achraf Hakimi, Fabian Ruiz, and Nordi Mukiele all made the trip despite not being in the squad, while Neymar could only post an Instagram Story of him watching the game in comfort elsewhere. We question Neymar’s love for the club and plead with clubs to make a bid for the Brazil international this summer.

Neymar’s best friend in the club, Lionel Messi, scored against Strasbourg and became the top scorer in the history of the five major European championships with 496 goals. We outline how PSG can replace Messi’s output this season as he is expected to depart at the end of the season.

We wrap up the show by talking about the coaching carousel and the latest transfer rumors.
