Paris Saint Germain’s football advisor Luis Campos ‘BANS Coca-Cola and puts an end to non-club employees entering the dressing room’ as he looks to reverse the ailing Parisian club’s slide into the absurd

  • Football advisor has put an end to the player’s drinking unhealthy fizzy drinks
  • Club has been criticized for allowing players’ representatives to come too close

Paris Saint Germain’s new football advisor Luis Campos has banned Coca-Cola and ice tea, it has been reported.

Campos, a football executive and former manager, joined the club this summer to work alongside Christophe Galtier as the two figures look to guide the club to its maiden Champions League crown.

According to Le Parisien, Campos appointed a first team nutritionist as one of his first steps having taken the job.

The nutritionist, rather unsurprisingly perhaps, immediately put an end to the players enjoying soft drinks and ice tea at meal times. Interestingly, the nutritionist has gone against the club’s partnership with the American drinks company which runs until 2024.

In news that might come as a surprise to many within elite football, the first team was not said to have employed a full-time nutritionist until Campos and Galtier arrived at the club earlier this summer.

It has been reported that the ban covers all meals that the squad eats together. Earlier this summer it was said that a new measure brought in was that the players would now be forced to eat breakfast and lunch together as part of their two compulsory meetings per day.

Campos, alongside former Lille and Nice boss Galtier, was appointed as an advisor in a bid for the club to reverse its decline into the absurd.

The last few years at the club, despite its often ludicrous spending on wages and transfer fees, have been marked by its absurd exits from the Champions League.

Last season they led Real Madrid 2-0 on aggregate at half-time in the second leg before a Karim Benzema hat-trick dumped them out of the competition.

The 2020 final aside – when they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich – the Parisian club has struggled to get close to capturing what its Qatari owners see to be the holy grail of football.

Under former manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked this summer despite winning Ligue 1, it was said that the players had too much of a run on how things worked at the club and the culture of PSG blocked them from winning the Champions League.

Questions have also been posed in the past few years as to the power players’ representatives and agents wield over the club.

In an apparent bid to stem some of the power, Campos is said to have banned non-club employees from entering the dressing room.

With the club having won their opening two Ligue 1 fixtures by an aggregate score of 10-2, the league appears to remain a formality. It remains to be seen whether or not Campos’s changes have a revolutionary touch in Europe.
