PSG cannot wait to face Barcelona, says Chantome

The midfielder has said that the Champions League clash against the Spanish side is all that the Ligue 1 leaders can think about

Defensive midfielder Clement Chantome has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain cannot wait to take on Barcelona in the Champions League.

PSG welcomes Barca to Parc des Princes on Tuesday, but first the Ligue 1 leader faces the task of beating Montpellier in the league as it continues the hunt to be crowned champion. 

However Friday night’s clash is not on many players’ minds as the excitement begins to build, according to the 25-year-old.

“It's good for everyone that we can play this kind of exceptional game. In the locker room, it's about Barcelona. Everybody thinks [about it]," Chantome told L’Equip.

“In the street, people stop us and tell us that that they even forget the Championship," he added.

“As players, we have never received so many calls from friends to give them places."
