Speaking on social media networking site Twitter, Mino Raiola sought to clarify comments that he was quoted as having made to Spanish paper AS about the quality of Ligue 1.
“In my interview with newspaper AS, I would like to further clarify that I congratulated PSG. PSG is already one of the elite teams of European football and they are becoming “historic” for what they are doing. My view of PSG is demonstrated by the great players that I have had the honour to assist to get there in the past. By the players that play there now. And also, by the players that will for sure play there in the future. The evaluation I made on the French championship reflects a common cliché in football. However, it is clearly not a thought of mine, as evidenced by the highly competitive nature of the league, especially the last seasons. Moreover, PSG has a great appeal on all of the top players I represent. Player that would all consider joining the club if the opportunity presented itself. I find it very strange that the French press only emphasised the phrase about the Championship and not the abundance of accolades I gave to PSG.”
