Worried about Chelsea's quality, PSG endorse stealing our players

Jamie McDonald

Chelsea don't have much of a rivalry with Paris Saint-Germain. As far as I know, the last time we met them in a real match was during Jose Mourinho's first spell at the club, when they were merely group stage cannon fodder -- now they're a different beast entirely. But they're a novel beast, which means that there are no off-the-pitch emotions one way or another. Sure, they signed Javier Pastore when we wanted to, but a grand total of zero Chelsea fans are upset about that one. We want to win the games, sure, but so much of football is about wanting the other side to lose that there's something missing from the tie.

It is in this vein that I welcome the recent comments from Yohan Cabaye and Lucas Moura (via ESPN):

Hazard is the player I'd like to see at PSG. He would do a lot of good to Paris and the league. He's one of the best players against whom I've played.

-Yohan Cabaye.

Oscar is a very good player. A rare talent in today's football, given his qualities. I would be very happy if he came here to PSG.

-Lucas Moura.

HANDS OFF OUR PLAYERS YOU FILTHY PARISIAN SONS OF FATHERS. HOW DARE YOU. YOU WILL SUFFER FOR YOUR IMPERTINENCE, THE PARC DES PRINCES SHALL BE RAZED TO THE GROUND AND SALTED SO THAT GRASS MAY NEVER GROW THERE AGAIN. OH AND WE'LL HAVE EDINSON CAVANI WHILE WE'RE AT IT THANKS.

Much better.
