thumbnail Hello,

The 29-year-old feels that the presence of star players will help end the myth that the French top flight is boring, and will make football in the country more attractive

Lille defender Franck Beria has asserted that Paris Saint-Germain's recent activity in the transfer market will end up benefitting Ligue 1 as a whole.

The Qatari-owned capital club have brought in the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva and Ezequiel Lavezzi this summer, leading many to suggest that Carlo Ancelotti's men will win the title with ease.

However, the 29-year-old feels that the acquisitions will help refute allegations that the league is boring, thanks to the exposure that their presence will give the competition.

"I think that it's super," he told RMC. "It's very good for the championship. This will contradict those who think that Ligue 1 is boring.

"I think that it will be more attractive here. Taking aside the financial aspects, I don't think that players are completely crazy [for joining].

"They don't want to come to a championship to be bored. They're here to do something."

PSG finished in second place in Ligue 1 last year behind surprise victors Montpellier, with Beria's side taking the third and final Champions League spot.
