According to Brazil international footballer, Dani Alves, the Parisians are “f*cking racists” as he remembered the time he spent in the French capital.

Brazilian right-back Dani Alves played two years in French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.

He managed to play in 73 games for PSG, scoring eight goals in the process.

But personally, the life in the French capital was not something he liked.

“It’s a stressful city,” he told GQ magazine according to Goal.

“I didn’t like it much.”

And he explained why: “If you go to Paris for a week, it will be the trip of your life, but any longer than that and it gets tiring.”

“It reminds me of a bit of Sao Paulo, but there, they are f*cking racists. A lot of them.”

“They didn’t say anything to me because I would have told them to go and f*ck themselves, but I saw it towards my friends,” he said.

“We have suffered this in Spain for some time. You have to take it with a dose of humor. We aren’t going to change things easily. If you don’t give it importance, they don’t achieve their objective.”

“The people there look Brazilian, live out on the street and have cool energy,” he said about the Latin cities.

“They’re very upfront, but I prefer people to be like that than the opposite.”
