PSG accept invitation to 2011 Emirates Cup
French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain have accepted an invitation to this summer’s Emirates Cup tournament, with Les Parisiens set to make their third appearance in north London since the birth of the competition.
Having hosted successful affairs during the last two summers (and capturing the competition trophy in 2007), Arsenal will again welcome Antoine Kombouaré’s men, who share the same sponsors as the Gunners.
The other team still mulling over an invitiation to the Emirates Cup is MLS side New York Red Bulls, who boast former Arsenal man Thierry Henry – a key reason as to why Ivan Gazidis invited them.
As it stands, PSG are currently on the verge of qualifying for Europe in fifth place, with Stade Rennais taking up the Champions League spot just two points ahead of them.
