PSG manager Luís Enrique: ‘Paris is my home.’

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luís Enrique has stated his affinity to the city of Paris, calling it “home” during a pre-match press conference on Friday. 

PSG are excelling in their first season under Luís Enrique. The club are top of Ligue 1, 12 points clear of second-place Stade Brestois, in the final of the Coupe de France and in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in three years. It has, thus far, been an undoubted success, despite the Spaniard’s tensions with the French press and reported frustration at the Kylian Mbappé situation. 

Luís Enrique’s current deal expires at the end of next season, but Sports Zone have reported that PSG’s hierarchy are keen to trigger a one-year extension. Amidst reported interest from former club Barcelona, Luís Enrique sought to vocalise his commitment to Les Parisiens, stating that the only way he would be leaving PSG would be if the club decided to fire him. 

He has now once again expressed his happiness in Paris. “I am from Gijon and I am Spanish. There is no doubt about that, my accent betrays me. I want to continue to improve my French, but my home is Paris; my home and my club. I live in the present. My home is Paris and Paris Saint-Germain is my club. I am ready to give the maximum for the club that decided to show their confidence in me,” he said.
