Lille coach Rudi Garcia has welcomed Paris Saint-Germain's signing of Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic but lamented the fact it has not sought to sign more French players.
PSG presented Ibrahimovic to the media on Wednesday after he completed a 20 million euros ($23.55 million) from AC Milan to become the latest member of the growing foreign legion at Parc des Princes.
PSG is likely to begin the season with only one or two French players in its first-choice starting XI and Garcia believes that, for all the excitement its signings provoke, its lack of local identity is a shame.
"On a sporting level, it's very good for Ligue 1 - you saw the media hype it generates," he said at a press conference at Lille's Luchin training base.
"But I'd be a bit annoyed to only line up with foreign players because we're in France and I think that, although PSG are putting a great team together, it's like they're saying there aren't enough great players in France, and that's not true."
