Meunier and PSG: "There was no real desire to want to renew myself"

The Belgian right-back recounted his last days at the club in the French capital before leaving for Borussia Dortmund.

It is clear that the story between Thomas meunier and Paris Saint-Germain It did not end well at all and a new test was the recent statements of the now soccer player from Borussia Dortmund.

The 28-year-old right-back made it clear that he intended to stay focused until the last day of his contract at the Parisian club and was blunt in ensuring that there was no offer to expand their bond.

“I almost knelt in Dortmund with my agent in order to reach an agreement to let me play for PSG, because on July 1 I was a Borussia player,” said the Belgian in an interview with RTBF.

In relation to his situation, Meunier elaborated on his talks with Leonardo, PSG sports director. “I had Leonardo on the phone and he asked me: ‘Are you still ready for the Champions League?’ I told him I’ll be 100% busy until the end. I want to finish (my link). Even if it’s to play in the quarterfinals. I want to. be with the squad, I want to live my last moments in the most intense way possible and play with PSG in the Champions League and the two Cups, “he said.

In this context, Meunier showed his indignation when he learned from the press that he had been accused of not wanting to extend his contract. “What am I reading in the press? That Meunier does not want to renew with PSG … The fact that I have not reached an agreement between Paris and Dortmund does not mean that I refuse to extend it. There was not even a proposal. And here it is where the communication, I don’t know if I can say about the club, but about Leonardo, since he is the one who manages the file, it was truncated … It was not very very correct. And finally, after the discussion, I understood that there was no real desire to wanting to renew myself. It was very clear. Then, suddenly, you see yourself as a victim, “he said.
