The Bayern Munich legend Franz Beckenbauer has said that he cannot be critical about the way the French club Paris St Germain have been looking to join the elite clubs in the world by spending vast sums of money. He has also said that a city like Paris deserves a big club and Paris St Germain are in the process of providing the same. The club was recently taken over by the Qatari owners, who have been spending vast sums of money on several high profile players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic. They are currently top of the French Ligue One standings, while they have also qualified for the last 16 stage of the Champions league.

It was not long ago that the Bayern Munich Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge criticised the transfer policy of the French club. Rummenigge said that football should not fall in the hands of investors looking to make money. Beckenbauer, though, have said that a city like Paris deserves to have a big team. Even though he has said that the objectives of the owners is questionable, there are now several clubs like Malaga and Manchester city who can also be questioned as well. PSG are reportedly paying the striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic close to £ 200,000 per week.

“PSG project has taken shape and is working. This team is more about the city and the results that match its ambitions. PSG now has a staff of high quality. A city the size of Paris deserves a big team. Even here in Germany, we talk about it. The project of Qatar is of course questionable, but it’s the same thing Manchester City or Malaga have done. Qatari leaders have managed to sign great players and suddenly, interest in the Championnat de France has grown,” said the Bayern Munich honorary president.
