Qatar effectively bought France’s biggest soccer team in 2011. Then they poured hundreds of millions of dollars into PSG. That’s because they wanted to make the club one of the strongest brands on the planet. They signed players like Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria. Furthermore, they spent a world-record fee on Brazilian superstar Neymar. However, this made them massive fish in a small pond.
The rest of the French league struggled to compete against PSG’s riches. The Parisian side went 27 games without defeat before they finally lost to Lyon in February (GOAL.com). But they only lost one more game that season. In the end, they finished the year as champions and proved that they were an elite squad. However, it also made the league boring.
