Irish Pundit Perfectly Explained Problems With RB Leipzig And PSG

Irish Pundit Perfectly Explained Problems With RB Leipzig And PSG

RTE pundit Richie Sadlier's description of why RB Leipzig and PSG are both disliked has gone viral after it hit the nail squarely on the head.

The two sides were competing in the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday night, both hoping to make their first final, and many were hoping Leipzig would win, before PSG beat them 3-0.

The German side were very much the underdogs so outside of Germany fans were hoping they'd give PSG a bit of a bloody nose, but it's far from that simple.

Irish pundit Sadlier explained why Germans have such an issue with the Red Bull owned side and was also spot on with the issues surrounding PSG.

Leipzig are seen as a good side because of their approach to playing good football, having a young manager and not spending huge money on players.

Instead they have spent smart, developed players and then sold them for a big profit, but as Sadlier explained it's far from good.

Red Bull bought a fifth tier club 11 years ago and rebranded them and they got around the 50+1 rule which Germans take very seriously.

The point of the rule is stop teams being completely owned by rich oligarchs or companies and allow fans to keep hold of at least half of the club through member ownership.

However the Champions League semi-finalists circumnavigated this by only having a handful of members, who are all Red Bull GmbH agents.

PSG's ownership, being state owned by Qatar Sports Investments, comes with its own set of issues and raises all sorts of morale questions.

Manchester City are the only other team which had had those similar questions to answer and the pair might have been meeting in the final if Pep Guardiola's side hadn't lost to Lyon at the weekend.

Many fans would also think Bayern Munich show another issue with modern football, having won Bundesliga for the previous eight years in-a-row, and they face Lyon in the second semi on Wednesday night.

So those looking for a more holistic approach to their football then Rudi Garcia's side are the only ones left in the competition worth supporting. Of course football doesn't tend to work like that too often.
