Paris Saint-Germain is one of the biggest, richest and most powerful clubs in world football. Founded just 50 years ago in 1970, the club is better known as ‘PSG’ and are France’s most successful club in history thus far. PSG have dominated Ligue 1 for several years and the fan base will be hoping to see more domination on a European scale - not just domestically.
The financial resources PSG have is unprecedented; that type of power attracted the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to the club and they will continue to attract players of a similar calibre. Football has become more of a business than a sport; if you have the financial power, you will succeed with the correct recruitment, which is exactly what PSG have done in recent years.
Overall, PSG are nine-time winners of Ligue 1 and have finished runners-up on eight occasions. During their first season as a club, they won the Ligue 2 title and haven’t looked back since. On top of that, PSG have won the Coupe de France a record 13 times, the Coupe de la Ligue a record nine times and the Trophee des Champions a record 10 times.
However, PSG need to convert their power and domestic dominance into European success. They are yet to win the Champions League despite coming close in the 2019/20 campaign, but could only finish as runners-up to Bayern Munich. They have won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup once, though, alongside one UEFA Intertoto Cup triumph.
The club is still transforming and it is scary for most of the top European clubs. PSG have the firepower to push on and become the most successful club in the world; all it takes is a little bit more time and considered recruitment.
