Patrice Evra rips into PSG for being a 'show business' and hosting VIP guests like Kim Kardashian
| Last updated
Paris Saint-Germain is a 'show business club' and 'football isn't the priority', sensationally claims Patrice Evra.
Evra joined former AS Monaco teammate Jerome Rothen on his RMC show, where he discussed PSG's Champions League elimination.
Bayern Munich dumped the French giants out of the competition following a 3-0 aggregate win.
The defeat means PSG go another season without lifting the coveted Champions League, having failed to win the 'Big Ears' trophy since their big-money takeover.
But Evra 'wasn't surprised' with PSG's exit from this season's competition and suggested they are unable to raise their game when it comes to big European matches, claiming they play 'with a cigar in their mouth' in Ligue 1.
The former Manchester United defender also pulled no punches as he absolutely ripped PSG as a football club, stating it's a 'show business' and 'football isn't a priority' as he referenced Kim Kardashian and bemoaned the lack of recognition to club legends.
"In the VIP stands, you don’t see Bernard Lama, instead it’s Kim Kardashian and the like," he exclaimed. "It’s a show business club, football isn’t the priority, no. Nasser Al Khelaifi loves the club, they’re doing a great job - but the message seems to be that when I’m going to watch a PSG game, it’s to watch a concert."
It comes after the social media influencer was in attendance for PSG's 2-0 defeat to Rennes, having watched Arsenal's Europa League game against Sporting CP.
Evra added: "I’m in the VIP lodge, there’s Champagne, appetisers... But guys, where are the old players?"
PSG appear on course to collect another league title as they sit at the top of the table, seven points clear of second-placed Marseille.
But they won't add any other titles to their trophy cabinet, having been knocked out of the French Cup by rivals Marseille and, of course, being eliminated by Bayern in the Champions League.
