The 2023-24 season is a new era for Paris Saint-Germain, as the capital club said goodbye to star players this past summer. Lionel Messi, Neymar Jr., Marco Verratti, and Sergio Ramos are all gone.
Furthermore, PSG made changes to its transfer policy. The Ligue 1 side is prioritizing top French talent and isn’t going for names but more building a team. Nonetheless, there are growing pains with this squad.
PSG isn’t in first place in Ligue 1 and is currently in second place in Group F of the UEFA Champions League. The Parisians must fight to win the league title and advance to the round of 16. Nonetheless, how is the team doing in the eyes of the architect, sporting advisor Luis Campos?
The club chief spoke with Le Parisien and has a positive outlook on this new age in the French capital.
“We have much more collective thinking this season at PSG,” Campos told the outlet (h/t Le10Sport). “We think about playing together, and that means everyone can shine. It’s a new direction that the club has taken.
“It is important as a club to defend what our supporters like to see. We must defend the culture of the country, the city, and what was put in place in previous years.”
It will be up to the squad to win the league title, advance to the knockout stage, and go on a deep run. If not, many will question if moving away from the star players was the ideal decision.
