Brest manager Michel Der Zakarian has been quoted saying something quite remarkable when discussing Lionel Messi’s impending arrival at Paris Saint-Germain.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll be well aware that recent reports are suggestion that Lionel Messi to PSG is very much on, with the former Barcelona man close to putting pen-to-paper on a move to the Parc des Princes.
It’s all happened very quickly, with Messi’s departure from Barca and expected arrival at PSG one of the biggest football news stories in recent memory, one which is set to turn French football on its head.
While Ligue 1 is frequently considered PSG’s playground, it’s worth remembering that Lille are the reigning champions, with last season’s race for the title as competitive as any we’ve seen previously.
French football is at a very exciting place right now, with Messi’s impending arrival only going to add to that. It’s all proven to be a bit much for Brest manager Michel Der Zakarian.
Brest manager Michel Der Zakarian on the prospect of Messi joining PSG:
“We say that we have a s**t league, but if we manage to bring in a player like that it would be exceptional. I’m not going to be polite here, but he gives me a hard-on.” (via RMC)

There’s definitely a joke in there somewhere about Der Zakarian being the manager of a team called Brest, but we’re not going to be the ones slutty enough to make it…
