Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has claimed that Paris Saint-Germain are run like a company and not a football club after their shock defeat to AS Monaco on Sunday.  

Despite starting a number of high-profile stars such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, the Ligue 1 log leaders suffered their third loss in the last six matches in all competitions as Philippe Clement’s side secured a comfortable 3-0 win. 

This loss comes one week after the Paris-based team were harshly criticised for their exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid, especially from the PSG fans who attended their clash against Bordeaux.

Following their latest setback, Henry tore into the players and the club hierarchy for the way they run the side.    

“There is a lack of connection between the club and the former PSG, the former supporters of the club, it is managed like a company and not like a club; you have to rediscover that connection with the community,” the 44-year-old said, per PSG talk. 

“It’s not just the jersey. 

“It’s been since the start of the season that PSG has been doing this.

“It’s often; it’s repetitive. What is the club’s standard?  

“The jersey must transcend people. What is the standard? 

“I played at Barça.  

“If you don’t respect what you have to do, you leave, at Bayern, you leave, in the big clubs you leave, at PSG do you leave?  

“Ten titles is huge, you must not trivialize it, but you must not do that.”
