Former PSG defender Thomas Meunier has revealed some behind the scene secret about how some of the ‘outrageous’ parties some of his teammates organize, the former PSG right-back spoke about his time at the French capital.
After his contract expired, the Belgian international moved to Germany as a free agent despite being a regular first-team player and helping the team to back-to-back league titles.
The PSG team is known to organize extravagant parties at the hottest night clubs in Paris but was amazed at the extent to which some of his teammates went to throw a big party.
Nothing but birthday parties-incredible’. “When I was at Bruges, we’d celebrate a birthday by playing darts or pools in a bar, but at PSG, it was just outrageous. But that just reflects the club: hire a place, hire a building, parties with hundreds of people.”
That’s when you see that they’re more than footballers-they are stars.
I always had a good time, but it was all a bit extravagant, and did you see me? but that’s part of it, part of the game.’
In February, most recently, two lavish parties were hosted by the club stars, which threw them into the spotlight. Neymar’s 28th birthday party, while Eddison Cavani and Mauro Icardi and Angel Di Maria held another joint party which reports say was put together by Mauro Icardi’s wife.
Neymar organized his birthday at a nightclub close to the Eiffel Tower.; the party was held just 48-hour to a game. The Brazillian star went as far as splitting his teammates into two groups; the married players were put on one floor of the club while the single players were group together so they could have a good time.
When former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera was asked what happened at the club, he responded, “What didn’t happen.”
“The truth is that when he does something, he does it to have a good time. And he organized it to have a good time. and the truth is that I congratulated him.”
Meunier, 28, played 128 games for the Paris based club, scoring 13 goals and assisting 21 before he moved on to the German club where he will play the 2020/21 season.
