‘Him at PSG? No wonder’: Paolo Di Canio slams Mauro Icardi and says French outfit is ‘natural landing place’ for ‘undisciplined’ players like him
- Mauro Icardi joined Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan on deadline day
- The forward was stripped of the Inter captaincy and excluded from training
- Paolo Di Canio has criticised both the Argentine forward and his new club
Paolo Di Canio has blasted Mauro Icardi following the Argentine’s loan move to PSG from Inter Milan.
The French club have an option to buy Icardi and Di Canio believes it is a match made in heaven, or perhaps hell.

‘But seriously, why did Carlo Ancelotti want someone like Icardi, unable to apologise to his team-mates for the words of his wife-agent,’ he said, according to Il Mattino.
‘And then, also from a technical point of view, Carlo needs an imaginative striker like (Dries) Mertens.
‘Icardi scores only when the ball arrives with a cross from the end line. For the rest, incapable of doing anything a modern striker should be able to do.
‘If he does not score he never gives a hand to the team. Him at PSG? No wonder, because the French club is the natural landing place for undisciplined players.’
