PSG is one of the teams with the most different nationalities within its squad, something that culturally enriches the dressing room. This also implies that there are players whose languages are different from French. We are going to review the languages spoken by the footballers of the Parisian team.
Of course, the most widely spoken language of the team is French, because in addition to great French players like Mbappé or Kimpembe, there are players of African origin like Gueye, whose official language in their home country, Senegal, is French. In addition, the squad is completed by many players from the subsidiary, who are mainly French.
Since Spanish is also spoken in Latin America, it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the club. At PSG there are several Argentines such as Paredes, Icardi, Di María, Messi, and the coach, Pochettino. On the other hand, Spaniards such as Bernat, Sarabia, Ander Herrera, Sergio Rico and Ramos, as well as the Costa Rican Keylor Navas. In addition, there are players like Rafinha and Achraf who know Spanish since they were born in Spain.
At PSG we find several Brazilians such as Neymar and Marquinhos, as well as Rafinha, who represent an important part of the club and who obviously speak Portuguese. On the other hand, we also have to mention Danilo Pereira, a Portuguese midfielder who shares a language with his Rio teammates.
Despite the fact that practically his entire professional career has been spent at PSG, Verratti is Italian. This season he will be able to communicate in his mother tongue with Dounnarumma, an Italian goalkeeper who has arrived this summer after winning the European Championship with the midfielder.
The German language is represented at the Parisian club by Kehrer and Draxler, both German players who have been at PSG for several seasons.
The signing of Wijnaldum adds one more Dutch speaker to the squad, as PSG includes the promising Xavi Simmons, a youth squad of Dutch origin who shares a language with the recent signing.
The Moroccan lane was born in Spain, but his parents are from Morocco and his mother tongue is Arabic. In the current staff he is the only one who speaks this language.
