Why PSG? I asked.
“That’s my heart club. I come from Paris.”
When I moved to Montreal 13 years ago one of the first people I met was my neighbour who came from Toulouse. After I had told him that I come from Sarajevo he started screaming “Safet Susic, Safet Susic!!!” and dribbling an imaginary ball. Only then I realized how big of a player ‘Pape’ was in France and the mark he left in Paris Saint-Germain. So much that in 2010 he was voted PSG’s best player of all time by French sport magazine France Football ‘s readers. Fabrice, just like my neighbour, came from France. He studies Fashion Marketing and he looks like he does. He loves another player whose roots are (partially) from Bosnia and Herzegovina and who’s just joined PSG, Zlatan Ibrahimović. ‘Ibra’ started the season well but I’m not sure he has what it takes to shadow Pape’s reputation among PSG fans.
