Leonardo lets go of Messi and Mbappé and puts a wind in Aulas

Zapping Dar! Football club PSG: top 10 most expensive transfers

Is his departure related to the extension of Mbappé?

“No. It was the end of the Championship and maybe it was time to decide things for the future. Was my start a condition for him to extend? No, I wasn’t told that. But I don’t want to get into that kind of thing, and keeping a player of that level, French and Parisian, is important for PSG and L1. “It’s not easy to be in a decision-making position. It’s a lonely position. OK, you’ve made a decision. You may be shocked, but it’s your decision. Everyone is a bit under pressure.” Tout le monde is in trouble, in progress. ”

What is his biggest blow to PSG

“I’m leaving with zero bitterness!” Then I have my vision. But this is not the day to pour out. It is to thank Qatar and Paris for offering me this opportunity. So, yes, I realize I’m the billionth person to make that joke. But still: in the end, we made Messi! We can say what we want. We had thought about it, yes. We had talked about it. Moreover, Messi never thought too much about leaving. These were the last moments, before his arrival, that were decisive. After, everything becomes a bit normal but you can…, you made the only change of Messi in his career! Messi, there is nothing more than that. Chronologically, there are Pelé, Maradona, Messi. He is in Olympus. So when I take stock of my three-year record, I see a C1 final, a semi-final, the 10th title, seven national trophies and I add Messi. »

Can he sign at OL, where Aulas enjoys it?

“It simply came to our notice then. I want to do things, not necessarily as a sports director. After a certain age, it’s good to do interesting things. After we left, we were very positive. Often people who have offered to work with me … Valence? There is nothing concrete. It talked a bit, like that, but nothing more. Lyon? I think that would be difficult. Seeing how to run another important French club like Lyon would be complicated. Aulas has been here for 35 years, I take this opportunity to congratulate him because everything he has done is huge. When we know the complexity of all this, his perseverance, his ideas, his hat! »
