PSG and its stars are coming to Japan

The PSG delegation has arrived in Japan for their pre-season tour. Even before playing, the people of Ile-de-France could measure their popularity in this pa

PSG flew to the country of the Rising Sun for their first friendly of the off-season. The French champions arrived in Japan this weekend for their big summer tour.

PSG very well received

This is not a business trip, as was the case in Qatar last January, even if the reception on offer suggests so. No, the Parisians are in Japanese territory to prepare for the new season and especially for their first official meeting. It will take place on July 31 in Tel Aviv as part of the Champions Trophy.

Paris will play three friendlies, including the first this Wednesday against Kawasaki Frontale (12:30 p.m.). Marquinhos and co will then take on Urawa Reds (Saturday, noon) and Gamba Osaka (Monday, noon) in succession.

These meetings will allow the Parisians to step up and work on their machines, especially with the two new recruits. The Portuguese Vitinha and the young Frenchman Hugo Ekitike take part in the trip.



Gaultier is already thinking about the Champions Trophy

As soon as he set foot in Japan, Christophe Gaultier insisted on the need to be serious and not lose sight of the goal. He wants to be in top condition for the match against Nantes in Israel.

Even if the operative word is work, the Parisians are also in Japan to please their fans in this region of the world. This is also the reason why three stars of the team, members of MNM, were singled out at the first press conference upon arrival.

Mbappé is very popular in Japan

So Messi, Neymar and Mbappe engaged in a question and answer game while making sure to greet their fans. And the French striker won the applause meter. Apparently, even on the other side of the globe, Bondinois is dethroning La Pulga in terms of popularity. Invited to say a few words, the international tricolor thanked the people for the welcome and also wished Japan’s selection good luck in the next World Cup.
