Today marks the 29th birthday of Leandro Paredes, a former Paris Saint-Germain player who played a crucial role in the French club’s rise to European and domestic prominence.
Leandro Paredes began his professional career with Boca Juniors in his native Argentina. He quickly emerged as one of the top talents in South American football, eventually moving to Europe to join AS Roma in 2014. After two years in Italy, he signed for Zenit St Petersburg and spent three successful seasons at the Russian club before joining PSG.
At PSG, Leandro Paredes became an integral part of Thomas Tuchel’s squad, playing alongside household names such as Neymar Jr., Kylian Mbappe and Marco Verratti. His defensive midfield presence provided stability and structure going forward, allowing the team’s attacking players to find more space and score goals – something which they were very successful at doing! Leandro Paredes was part of PSG’s historic quadruple-winning campaign: winning both Ligue 1 and Coupe de France titles as well as reaching the UEFA Champions League final (which PSG ultimately lost).
Leandro Paredes is not only remembered for his contributions on the pitch. He always had a smile on his face when he put on the PSG jersey – a reminder that he was an important part of this incredible era of success for Paris Saint-Germain Football Club. As we celebrate this special day today, let us not forget about how much we have achieved during his time with us: four trophies won together and almost reaching the ultimate prize of European glory!
