The Italian-touch of PSG has disappeared. Thiago Motta, Salvatore Sirigu, Marco Verratti… All have now left for other skies. Starting with the former goalkeeper of the capital who has just signed, at 36, for OGC Nice. Presented this Tuesday to the press, he returned to the recent departure of his former teammate, to whom he paid tribute in person, by being present this Friday at the Parc des Princes.
“I saw Verratti leave. It was like seeing the end of an era. Marco was one of the main players. He arrived very young: he could still go to school, he was barely 19 years old. It feels really weird. You thought Paris-Saint-Germain, you thought Verratti,” admitted the Italian goalkeeper, in comments relayed by the Team. Salvatore Sirigu, 28 caps with Italy, arrived at PSG in 2011. A club whose colors he wore until 2017.
“Play 5 or 10 more matches…”
From there to no longer recognizing PSG? Absolutely not according to Sirigu: “The project continues. It’s normal. It’s football, it changes, and it changes very quickly. The thing that made me happy was seeing people who still work at the club, which means that the essence remains even if it concerns people who we don’t see on the front of the stage. »
Placed in a number 2 role behind another ex-PSG goalkeeper, Marcin Bulka, the Italian international has already accepted his role as understudy. “There is Marcin playing, but I have to push him. Playing 5 or 10 more matches won’t change my career. This is the quality I am looking for. I wanted to be part of a group that considers me important, and that is the case here,” enthused Salvatore Sirigu. The Italian should be on the bench when Nice travels to Monaco this Friday for the 6th day of Ligue 1.
