Achraf Hakimi: “It’s not easy when your supporters don’t support you.”

Ahead of this evening’s fixture between rivals Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes, star right-back Achraf Hakimi (23) spoke to Téléfoot about his first Classique at the Stade Vélodrome and the effect the PSG ultras could have, if they decide to bring their full support.

“Yes I know there is a particularly different expectation. There’s a lot of rivalry, I witnessed it at the away fixture. And now I will experience it at home. It’s a match that could practically decide the fate of the league. Our supporters deserve this victory and this 10th league title.”

On the presence and support of the fans:

“The truth is that we’ve had a few rotten weeks recently. Them of course, but us too, because it’s not easy when your supporters don’t support you. I think winning is the best thing we can do to get them to encourage us again until the end of the season.”
