Paris Saint-Germain is one of the biggest French clubs and now they are also sending warning signals to the rest of the European heavy-weights. They have won 4 league titles in the last 5 seasons and boast a star-studded squad.
This wasn’t always the case , prior to the takeover by Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) in 2011 ,the club didn’t have much star power in their squad and the team was deemed as an underachieving giant.
However, they had some great players playing for them even before the recent success and in this article ,we will have a look at 10 greatest PSG players of all time.
Here are the top 10 greatest PSG players of all time –
10. Dominique Rocheteau
