After the controversy at the start of the season with the sand yachting scandal, PSG is studying the possibility of making certain train trips next season. The capital club would therefore work with the SNCF to make this possible. But the team of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi and Neymar would have some conditions to agree to travel by TGV.
At the start of the season, the PSG was at the heart of a real scandal. After a plane trip to Nantes, Christophe Galtier was questioned about the means of transport deemed not very ecological of the club of the capital. ” To be very honest with you, this morning we spoke with the company that organizes our trips. We’re trying to see if we can’t get around in a sand yacht “The Parisian coach had then launched with a touch of irony. The answer did not please everyone. Since PSG would be in negotiation with the SNCF for train journeys from next season. And the capital club would have some conditions.

“We are not going to privatize a train that can accommodate 500 customers, for 60 people”
According to information from Parisianthe PSG would have several requirements for his train journeys. The capital club would first like to privatize an entire TGV to transport Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, Neymar and the other stars. ” Privatize an entire TGV for PSG? It’s impossible. We are not going to privatize a train that can accommodate 500 customers, for 60 people. In terms of carbon footprint, we would no longer be in the nails » thus replied Nathalie Lanierdirector of group travel in charge of the file PSG, for the Ile-de-France media. The Parisian formation would therefore like to have up to 3 first class cars at its disposal, as well as seats adapted to the large sizes of the club.
“Once they are in their private car, they do what they want”
the PSG would also think about the space available in the car so that the club’s masseurs and physiotherapists can do their job on the return trip. ” They can lie them on two seats or use folding massage tables if they wish. Once they are in their privatized car, they do what they want… ” asserted Nathalie Lanier. Because in fact the PSG would not like to stay behind after the matches and would therefore like special trains to be chartered at late hours or at night. But the case seems badly engaged on this side, as revealed Nathalie Lanier : “ The club does not want them to sleep there. But the trains don’t run at night, since we do track maintenance. So we could go back and forth when they play during the day. »
“We are ready to welcome PSG on our trains”
the PSG would also like access to the trains to be completely secure. The SNCF would therefore think of mobilizing special agents from the company in order to avoid a crush with the presence of Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar at the station so that no fan can break in. With this in mind, the SNCF could also add an additional stop on its lines, and make the PSG from a place closer to Camp des Loges. ” It requires a lot of preparation, but we are capable of it, we already do it for other formations. We are ready to welcome PSG on our trains » concludes Nathalie Lanier, confident. To be continued…
