During his time at PSG, he will have brought, not only to his teammates but also to all components of the Club, its phenomenal experience, its sense of professionalism and his personality wonderful, warm, inclusive and very open to the world. ” Gigi ” will always remain one of the giants of football who have dealt with talent the colors and the values of Paris Saint-Germain.
