He felt that the club had enough money to sustain its position in Ligue 1. He felt that their readiness to spend the money to keep buying top players was sufficient. PSG had talented players like Marco Verratti, Edison Cavani, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the main stars in their initial years of rise. In addition, LeBoeuf felt the players before Kylian Mbappe were able to put the club at the top of the league as well.

PSG did not win or even reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for more than 20 years before the star from Monaco arrived. However, the former French defender felt they were good enough in the European competitions as well. In short, PSG won’t witness a heavy downfall in case their country’s biggest and most popular soccer player decides to leave.
