Former PSG Feminine, Laure Boulleau, gives her thoughts ahead French Cup final
By Hidayah Ali
The former Paris Saint-Germain player, Laure Boulleau, sat down for an interview with the PSG official website. Her old team is in the final of the French Cup against Lyon, on Saturday, May 15th.
Laure reflected on her time with the Parsian side. Asked what the French Cup means to her, she said: "It's a competition that means a lot to me, and it brings back good memories."
The former defender also mentioned that she played in it at a time when the team wasn't dominating in the league, she described it as "pride" to have the chance of playing and then also winning it.
Boulleau won the trophy twice during her 13 years with the club; she mentioned how she feels about the club during this new era, "I see what the club is doing today; I am happy to have been a part of its first adventure."
"Nothing can prevent Paris from having the ambition to win the Coupe De France every year." Boulleau clearly believes in PSG's future in the competition—comments that show the true reflection of Paris today and what it can achieve.
With Saturday's final against Lyon not too far off, the French footballer expressed her feelings on the matchup ahead.
She said, "I'm happy it's against Lyon. A final is better when it's always the best poster possible." Something we all can completely agree with.
Though she seems happy to have Lyon as the opponent, she's not convinced Paris are the favourites to win. "You have to know that we played all season without Katoto, which is nothing, and Diani will be absent too."
This is the biggest downfall of the Paris squad this season and going into the final, as both of their strikers are out.
But Laure hasn't given up hope for her former club as she said that "in the final, anything can happen, and the players will be able to surpass themselves to make a big game and have no regrets."
