Abdou Diallo, the defender of Paris Saint-Germain, supported Leonardo after his controversial comments about the place of football in Paris.
In an interview with the club’s official media, the Parisian sports director succeeded to attract the wrath of some of the Parisian fans and some observers in the image of Luis Fernandez. “There is a culture in the city to build. Paris was never exactly the city of football. It’s still Marseille, said the Brazilian leader. In Paris, there are still a lot of things we have to do. “
Leonardo did not “disrespect PSG”
After receiving a lot of criticism, Leonardo can finally count on new support. At the microphone of Europe 1, Abdou Diallo defended its leader. “In the context and the way in which Leonardo wanted to speak, it is to explain that Marseille history is great. It is a reality, said the former defender of the Borussia Dortmund. And it is not disrespectful to PSG to say that, on the contrary. “
“We can interpret it in different ways”
The interpretation made of Leonardo’s statement changed the meaning of his point according to the 24-year-old. “I think that for there to be a big OM, you need a great PSG and vice versa, explained Abdou Diallo. It’s part of football. I know Leonardo and I pretty much know what he’s thinking. Now, when you isolate a statement and pull it out like that, you can interpret it in different ways. “
