PSG - The new breed
Breaking news coming out of parc de princes is that Carlo Ancelotti has left his post after only 3 months in charge because of personal problems. the man PSG have turned to s former international footballer Shane Swanston who has no managerial experience to his name whatsoever. but after a brief talk to the chairman underlaying his philosophy and vision for the club, they were left with no other choice than to employ Mr Swanston
my first job is to take a look through my squad and determine who has and has not got the quality to lift PSG to the next level. ill be looking to realease any of my under 18's squad who havnt got the potential to eventually challenge for first team honours so there will definitly be players leaving this club in the near future
The board have made it quite clear that Lique 1 is the main priority for the season and with that have given me a transfer budget of $84.5m to spend on new players. ill also be looking to challenge for the European Champions League this year and with some clever signings who knows what is possible . THE SKYS THE LIMIT....
Transfer targets have been identified and we have enquired about the availability of a few players, Klass Jan Huntelaar , Rafael , Daniel Alves and Robin Van Persie are just a few players where looking at at the moment but will not be purchasing all of them.
Yes! A PSG story!, good lad, hope it goes well
Very exciting news coming out of France today is that PSG have announced the signings of Klass Jan Huntelaar and young Santos goalkeeper Rafael. both players have stated that they are very happy be be joining PSG in an exciting time for the club and will be doing their utmost in order to bring silverware to Paris
Klass Jan Huntelaarwe have invested in Huntelaar because i feel he will be a very good backup and can also lead the line when Ibra isnt fit or when i need something else in attack. his natural goal scoring ability and record will put fear into opposition defences
Rafaelthere was no second option in this case as we see this highly rated Brazilian goalkeeper challenging for the number 1 spot from day one .
in other transfer news Guillaume Hoarau has left for Inter Milan for a fee believed to be around $3.5m. we have also released 10 youth team players from the club. we wish them all the best for the future
Preseason has officially started for Paris Saint Germain. we have been invited to play in a friendly tournament in Cairo alongside Fc Twente , Al Ahly and Club Africab. we were drawn against Club African in the first semi final whilst Fc Twente play Al Ahly in the other semi
we managed to beat Club African quite easily in our match. the positive thing was that we were able to play some of our promising youngsters aswell to give them some game time
we managed to progress to the final of the friendly cup where we would be playing Fc Twente.
another comfortable for PSG as we totally outplayed Fc Twente and showed our class so early in pre-season. could this be a sign of things to come. klass Jan Huntelaar bagging a brace on his full debut
our remaining fixtures see us play Team dur wen , Desp Alves , Toluca , Dijon , Borussia Dortmund and Dukia Prague

we have also announced the release of another 5 youth players. ill be looking to bolster the youth team with a few young signings
Arsenal have come in with an offer of $4.1m for our highly rated attacking midfielder Hervin Ongenda which we have rejected
pre-season is officially over for the season and im fairly happy with our performances to go with it . the main objective out of preseason was to get our players match fit before the big start
