The Impact Of The Possible New Tax Law On Ibrahimovic's PSG Salary
Published July 20, 2012
REACTIONS: LE FIGARO reported President Hollande did not believe it was "necessary to have such large remunerations to win in professional sports." He also warned athletes who try to evade taxes. Hollande: "They are fiscal procedures to find them." Sports Minister Valerie Fourneyron said Ibrahimovic's salary at PSG was "astronomical and unreasonable" (LE FIGARO, 7/18). EUROSPORT.fr reported that Professional French Football League President Frédéric Thiriez "did not understand the reaction of the elites." Thiriez said of the transfer: "Super good news for everybody. For Paris obviously. But also for French football in general and the Ligue 1 particularly, which will see itself pulled to new heights in terms of audience, influence and image" (EUROSPORT.fr, 7/19).
