Rohr played for Bordeaux for over ten years and also managed the club for six years from 1990 to 1996, he steered them to Ligue 1 safety in the 1995-1996 season.

“We have to make the club sparkle and we need a really combative and united team. Coach Gasset also unfortunately seems a little lost in this situation. He must have tried a lot of things already, he still has the experience,” Rohr told France Bleu.

“We didn’t give up, we reacted but what we see is that the results are still just as catastrophic and that you concede three or four goals. .. It’s still difficult to always say the same thing.

“Boys do not get along, from what I was told. And then, there is an unconducive atmosphere, unfortunately, with the supporters. It is very difficult for everyone to work effectively.

“I have always been the man of the club. Currently, I am under contract with Nigeria. But if it is to help the Girondins, I will always be available.”

Bordeaux will hope to bounce back from their poor performance against Monaco with a victory over Lorient on Sunday.

Pochettino Extends PSG Contract

Published

on

Paris Saint-Germain coach Mauricio Pochettino on Friday penned a one-year extension to his contract to stay with the French giants until 2023.

The Argentine took over from the sacked Thomas Tuchel in January but PSG were dethroned as champions by Lille and were knocked out in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

PSG did, however, win the French Cup.

“I’m really very happy, for myself and also for my staff,” said Pochettino, a former PSG captain.
“It’s very important for us to feel the confidence of the club and we will give our maximum so that the supporters are proud of Paris Saint-Germain.

“It’s very important for us to feel the confidence of the club and we will give our maximum so that the supporters are proud of Paris Saint-Germain.

“That’s why we will try and reach our objectives all together, as one. Twenty years ago I was captain of this club and today I am the coach. It’s a dream come true.” (AFP)

PSG Confirm Italy Goalkeeper Donnarumma Signing

 

Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has joined Paris St Germain on a five-year deal after leaving Serie A club AC Milan on a free transfer, the French Ligue 1 side said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

Donnarumma, who was crowned Euro 2020 Player of the Tournament after Italy’s victory over England in the final, helped Milan finish second in Serie A last season to secure Champions League qualification for the first time since 2013-14.

During his six seasons in Serie A, the 22-year-old made 215 league appearances, while becoming the youngest goalkeeper in Italian national team history, at the age of 17 years and 189 days, during a game against France, in September 2016.

“I am delighted to be part of this huge club,” Donnarumma said. “I feel ready to take on this new challenge and continue to grow here. With Paris, I want to win as much as possible and to bring joy to the supporters.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Donnarumma posted an emotional Instagram message to Milan supporters.

“All the Rossoneri I met, from the first to the last day, will always be in my heart as a fundamental part of that journey through life that made me what I am today,” he said.

“I wish Milan all possible success and I do that with my heart, for the affection that ties me to these colours, a sentiment that distance and time cannot cancel.

“I arrived at Milan when I was little more than a child, for eight years I wore this jersey with pride. I also achieved important personal targets with the Rossoneri shirt, such as my debut at the age of 16 in Serie A. I experienced extraordinary years that I will never forget.”

PSG have been busy this summer in the transfer market, having already brought in veteran Spanish defender Sergio Ramos on a free transfer after he left Real Madrid, along with the capture of fullback Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan.

“We are delighted to welcome Gianluigi Donnarumma to Paris Saint-Germain,” PSG Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.

“I know Gianluigi will receive a warm Parisian welcome from everyone at the club, including his teammates, our staff and all the supporters.”

PSG Confirm Sergio Ramos Signing

 

Sergio Ramos, the former Real Madrid stalwart considered one of the best defenders in the world, has signed a two-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain, the French club said Thursday.

Ramos, 35, won the Champions League four times with Real and is a World Cup winner and a two-time champion of Europe with Spain.

The veteran, who has won a European record 180 caps and scored 23 goals for his country, arrives with PSG desperate to add experience to their squad for another assault on an elusive first Champions League title.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has also brought in Dutch midfield star Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool and Moroccan defender Achraf Hakimi from Italian champions Inter Milan and the club has been heavily linked with goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, who will line up for Italy against England in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final.

The Qatari-owned club also hope the significant investment will persuade France striker Kylian Mbappe to sign a new deal beyond 2022.

“It’s a big change in my life, a new challenge and a day I shall never forget,” Ramos said in a PSG statement.

“I am proud to be a part of this very ambitious project and to join a team with great players. It’s a club which has already proved itself at the highest level with solid foundations. I want to continue to grow with Paris and help the team win titles.”

PSG lauded him as one of the world’s most decorated defenders, noting individual distinctions including Uefa naming him Europe’s best defender in 2017 and again in 2018.

“Sergio is a complete footballer, one of the best defenders in history. He is a born competitor, a leader and a great professional,” said PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who saluted Ramos’ “wealth of experience and his ambitions (which) are in perfect harmony with those of the club.”

Ramos, who cut his teeth with Sevilla before joining Real in 2005, played almost 500 league games for Los Blancos, marshalling their defence for 16 seasons and winning LaLiga five times.

He also scored some notable goals – not least his injury-time equaliser in the 2014 Champions League final against city rivals Atletico.

Real went on to win 4-1 to claim their tenth win in the competition and Ramos remained a mainstay of the side as they made it four continental titles in five seasons between 2016 and 2018 under French coach Zinedine Zidane.

Ramos was remarkably consistent across his 16 seasons at the Bernabeu, with knee meniscus surgery midway through his final season last term his only lengthy absence throughout that time. (AFP)
