I’ve had time to reflect on what has happened and it is time to make changes and they need to happen before the new season. After my five years with PSG it’s time to start a new chapter. I’m not talking about any individuals directly but a new era is about to start as you’ll see”.

Al-Khelaïfi has yet to go into detail about these changes but has stated that he wants a team with drive and hunger. Before Saturday’s UCL final he admitted his admiration for Atletco Madrid stating: “I have huge respect for Atlético, for the club, the team and the fans. They are always hugely motivated and deserve to be in the final. It’s no coincidence that they are in their second final in three years”.
