PSG ‘could have funding pulled by Qatar as ongoing criticism in France is reflecting badly on the country’

Qatar Sports Investments are considering withdrawing their funding for French giants Paris Saint Germain following widespread criticism and a lack of success on the pitch, according to recent reports in France.

PSG stand as one of the superpowers of European football, boasting some of the world’s finest players due to the might of Qatar wealth invested into the football club.

However, French daily Le Parisien claim there now exists a consideration for the Arab funding to be withdrawn from the club, with a failure to make solid progression in the Champions League one of the key reasons.

Qatar Sports Investments, a subsidiary of the state-owned Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), took control of PSG in 2012 and outlined their ambition to make the club as big as the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

For many seasons PSG have competed with and often defeated their Spanish rivals in the transfer markets, bringing star names to the Parc Des Princes on lucrative contracts.

The finest summer of acquisitions for the club came in 2017, when PSG managed to prise Neymar away from Barca due to the activation of a release clause, while also managing to bring in wonderkid Kylian Mbappe on loan from Monaco with an obligation to buy.
