PSG have produced a press release on their player Adrien Rabiot’s decision not to join up with the French national team World Cup squad as a reserve.
Paris Saint-Germain has taken note of Adrien Rabiot’s comments today on his decision to withdraw from the list of French substitutes for the next World Cup in Russia.
Beyond the debate that has emerged in the public sphere, the Club wishes to emphasise the special connection that it has with a player who joined the youth academy in 2010 and then climbed with talent and character to become a major part of our professional team.
Highly successful wearing our colours, which he has already honoured 207 times at just 23 years old, Adrien represents one of the brightest flag-bearers of our Club’s youth system.
Paris Saint-Germain does not wish to interfere in a situation that concerns above all a player and the national team to which it is attached.
The Club recalls its deep attachment for national teams and the values that they embody and wishes the best to its French internationals who have convened for the World Cup.
