The world’s richest club also keeps an eye on the abyss in handball. Its budget, 17 million, is double that of the rest of the applicants. “His players live out of reality and it doesn’t help,” said Antonio Garca, a former member of the team.

PSG in handball as well as PSG in football. For good and bad. The team took the lead a decade after capital came from the Qatari investment authority Michael Hansen It stands at the same intersection as the set MBPP, Messi Y. Neymar. He dominated France, but he still could not win the Champions League and the obsession with that title continues to grow, grow and grow. The parallels between the two games are, in fact, exaggerated: both teams have the highest budgets in Europe [en balonmano, unos 17 millones, casi el doble que el Bara], Both have lost a final in the highest European competition and both have failed each year against historic rivals. This Thursday the handball PSG saw the abyss of elimination against the Norwegian Elvaram in the 16th round: in the first leg they tied at 30, at home they avoided a fall with a 37 to 30 win.

“No problem to spend”

“They should go to the quarter-finals, but let’s see how it goes,” Garca explained, referring to a granola player who was in Paris at the start of the project between 2012 and 2014. He came in a team that had just risen from the second and was seen, behind him, appearing like they were Didier Dinar, Luke Abalo, Marco Colzer And finally the leader, Hansen. “There was no problem with spending. In fact, the squad was shut down when Hansen was offered a job and nothing, in a week they brought him in as the best paid man in the world. It was quite an experience. When I arrived, the club had four employees and There were already more than 20 people in a few months ৷ athletes asked if they could update the machines in the gym, and in a few days it was all new, “said Winger, the 2013 world champion with Spain, who won bronze at the Tokyo Olympics last summer, at the age of 38.

Garcia made his PSG debut in the Champions League in 2013 and later went through a group transition. To further connect with the local population, they signed several Frenchmen and he had to go to Hungary. “The same thing happens with handball at PSG like Barra: they have won all the national titles since the beginning of the year, they have played four Champions League seasons and if they can’t win then it’s already a failure. “PSG players live like footballers. A lot of events, a lot of work, it’s a world that can confuse you,” said one of the current Asabal.

The role of Al-Khelaifi

His teammate, Corales, who was at PSG between 2017 and 2020, agrees: “At PSG you feel like a footballer, it’s true. It’s not just travel conditions or privileges, it’s a lot of work for those who invite you. Impressed with the player who got there ৷ but hey, you shouldn’t be unfair to the club and what it has achieved বছরে in 10 years, it has made a humble French team one of the best candidates in the Champions League and briefly missed out on the title. “

“In general, the ambitions of the Champions League are noticeable at clubs, but unlike football, it is obvious. For example, the times he came to see us. [Nasser] Al-Khelaifi, President, was always our congratulations. The one who was at the top was the general manager, Jean-Claude Blank. The divisions are very important, it is common to see players like Mbopp at the stand of handball matches, but PSG is still a football club “, added the goalkeeper, an Olympic medalist who also came to the French club in frustration. Since then, with four other failed appearances in the final four, they have chased him, chased him and chased him.
