PSG boycott media ahead of crunch clash against Nice

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 150

The Ligue 1 champions have called a media blackout prior to the top-of-the-table match in the wake of negative coverage following the club's recent struggles

The reigning champions head into the game at Parc des Princes under pressure following a recent run of bad results both domestically and in the Champions League.

PSG conceded further ground in the race for the Ligue 1 title by losing 3-0 to Montpellier last Saturday, before missing out on top spot in their Champions League group to Arsenal following a 2-2 draw with Ludogorets on Tuesday.

And the club have responded to negative coverage surrounding the team's difficult spell on the pitch by boycotting the press.

It is rumoured that PSG players have called for the boycott and the club's hierarchy have decided to go through with it.

PSG boss Unai Emery is under scrutiny as a result of the club's poor run of form and a defeat against Nice would only turn up the heat on his position.

The Parisiens are currently third and four points adrift of second-placed Nice, who can move above leaders Monaco if they avoid defeat against Emery's charges.
