PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have blasted the “malevolent rumours” that suggested midfielders Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti were spotted partying two days before the club’s spectacular Champions League collapse to Barcelona.

PSG led 4-0 after the first leg but were knocked out by a dramatic 6-1 Barca win at Camp Nou on Wednesday, leading to fans clashing with players at Bourget Airport on their return to France.

Leading sports newspaper L’Equipe reported that Matuidi and Verratti were seen by witnesses in a Paris nightclub until well after midnight on Monday, but PSG have released an angry response.

“Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti in a nightclub two days before Barcelona?” PSG posted on Twitter today.

It is insulting to their professionalism and their club. A defeat will never authorise the spreading of the most malevolent rumours.

“Shame to those — often L’Equipe — who disseminate them without even knowing their information. No credibility.”
