PSG sets up two academies in Germany

04 Jun 2019, 11:00

French giants Paris Saint-Germain has set up two academies in north-west Germany as they look set to compete against Bundesliga giants to attract young players.

PSG said two training bases for young players aged six to 16 will be based in Dusseldorf and Oberhausen, with both "steeped in the playing philosophy and values of Paris Saint-Germain".

It means clubs including Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen, all based nearby, could be forced to compete for players with PSG.

In a club website statement, Thomas Tuchel, the club’s head coach said: "It gives me very special pleasure to see Paris Saint-Germain growing in Germany.

Opportunity

"The academy will provide an opportunity to share Paris Saint-Germain’s vision of football with German youngsters and offer them quality coaching."

PSG'S director of merchandising and brand diversification Fabien Allegre spoke of the club reaching "new frontiers".

PSG said they would hold two "discovery days" this month: in Dusseldorf on June 22 and in Oberhausen seven days later.

Those will be supervised by PSG academy head coach Benjamin Houri and Guido Contrino, who has become director of the club's German academy.

The two academies will fully open their doors in September and will coach players all year round, PSG said.
