Former Manchester United goalkeeper Fabian Barthez has slammed French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) for the lack of respect shown towards Manchester United during their last 16 ties in the Champions League.
1998 French World Cup winning goalkeeper Barthez berated PSG for their conduct during his post-match thoughts with media outlet Le Parisien after Manchester United overturned their first-leg deficit against their hosts.
Fabian Barthez also revealed that PSG didn’t learn from their slump against Spanish champions Barcelona two years ago.
