Verratti ‘to sue L’Equipe’
Marco Verratti’s agent describes reports his client went clubbing on the eve of Paris Saint-Germain’s match with Barcelona as ‘pure invention.’
The Italian midfielder was part of the team subsequently hammered 6-1 at Camp Nou in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg, a result which astonishingly saw PSG surrender a 4-0 first leg advantage.
Following the capitulation, French daily L’Equipe suggested the 24-year-old had been out in the early hours of the morning prior to the match, claims Donato Di Campli says have provoked him to file a lawsuit.
“It is abosolute madness, a pure invention,” the agent told Premium Sport. “As long as we talk about technical things that is one thing, but here they are entering into the private life of an important player like Marco, who has always kept a low profile.
“We asked for a retraction [of the story] but it has still not come. We will proceed with a lawsuit with heavy damages in order to re-establish the truth.
“The player is angry. The French media should kiss his feet and be thankful he plays for PSG.
“There is no problem with the club or fans, who have always been fantastic. Marco has a contract until 2021, the President has shown his desire to create a great team.”
Di Campli added that should an incident of this sort occur again, it may force he and Verratti to make some important decisions over his future.
“But it is also true that my phone never stops ringing. If another thing of this sort happens, we will make some important reflections.”
