Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the rest of the Paris Saint-Germain squad are ditching their regular sponsor, Emirates Airlines, and forgoing the profit that would come with leaving the company on their kits by delivering what they believe to be a more important message, in support of the city their fans call home.
For the next two matches, "Je Suis Paris" ("I am Paris") will be written on the very front of the team's jerseys in support of those who were affected by the recent attacks in the city. You can see how they'll appear in this Tweet below:
The Paris club has become one of the elite in football, and they have many fans in Paris, and outside of the city as well. The message will reach millions of people, and the stance of solidarity is commendable.
One of the two matches they'll be doing this for is a Champions League encounter with Malmo on Wednesday and the other is a home match with Troyes this weekend. I think Malmo and Troyes are in a heap of trouble, to be honest.
I'm looking forward to seeing the product these men put out on the field during this time. I mean, they're already a super talented bunch, but playing with a city (and country) in their hearts will probably make them an even tougher draw.
