Today coach of Al-Rayyan (Qatari D1), the 55-year-old technician even admitted to contacts with FC Barcelona a few years ago, ultimately without success. The 1998 World Champion did not understand the management of Barça in recent years, in addition to the failure of the Messi file.
“I think they made monumental mistakes, said the former PSG technician to Panenka.org. Monumental. Not just because of Messi, but also because of the last four or five years. They have lost incredible players, which a club like Barca cannot afford. You cannot lose Neymar or Messi because it is very difficult to replace them. Honestly, it’s incredible for French football to have Messi, Neymar and Mbappé in the same Championship. PSG is on another planet, yes, but, for the French Championship, it’s good to have these players ”, he told Spanish media.
