Just few hours after the French government decided that the French coronavirus pandemic would not play the French championship until September, meaning it was cancelled this season, Paris Saint-Germain announced that they would continue their Champions League appearances.
PSG eliminated Borussia in the eighth finals Dortmund placed among the eight best teams in Europe where Atalanta, RB Leipzig and Atletico Madrid still stand, until the four finals of the eighth finals have yet to be finalized. The quarter-finals draw was postponed until further notice.
“We respect the decision of the French authorities. In agreement with UEFA, we intend to continue to participate in the Champions League final, at the time and place where it will be organized. If it is not possible to play in France, ours will be ours to play matches abroad, with the conviction that we will place our players and all staff in the best possible health conditions,” said PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi.
In essence, Al Khelaifi told for
RMC Sport that he respected the decision of the competent authorities, but would insist that the French champion would continue on his way to the Champions League, even if he had to play home games outside France.”
