Benjamin Nicaise joins PSG recruitment team

As reported by L’Équipe last night, Paris Saint-Germain have signed 41-year-old former French midfielder Benjamin Nicaise to replace Luca Cattani as a part of the recruitment team at the club, with the Italian having left for Spartak Moscow last December.

Nicaise, who comes from the Île-de-France region, played professionally with Nancy, Metz and Amiens, before six years in Belgium with a variety of clubs. After his retirement from professional football, he rejoined one of his clubs, Standard Liège, as head of recruitment.

In this role, Nicaise holds a poor reputation with the Belgian fans, who have criticised his effectiveness in his two-year stint, which ended in December of last year. This is result of having missed out on certain recruitment opportunities, as well as having made mistakes with agents’ commissions.
