PSG ultras display incredible Nasser Al-Khelaifi tifo in UCL

PSG ultras have become somewhat famous for their innovative and creative banner designs in recent years – the latest instalment coming in the form of an impressive Nasser Al-Khelaifi tifo.

Despite the ultras having a turbulent relationship with the Qatari owners, Al-Khelaifi found himself featured in a stand-long tifo along with several PSG players.

Tifo galore at Parc des Princes

There were tifos in what felt like every section of the stadium as PSG welcomed Borussia Dortmund to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday, May 7.

A wide array of artwork could be seen within the stadium ahead of kick-off, including Dortmund's badge and images of the Champions League trophy.

However, the pick of the bunch was undoubtedly a virtually stand-long display featuring many of the French giants' key players, as well as their president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi. It was a truly mesmerising piece of art, not just for its sheer size, but also for the incredible level of detail it included.

A confusing relationship

The Qatari ownership has done a lot of good at PSG, namely financing and masterminding the club's propulsion into being a European force to be reckoned with. But, despite that, they have not always maintained a great relationship with the team's ultras.

It is worth noting that there are several different ultras groups and some have been treated better than others. For example, one of the most iconic and important groups in the club's history, the Supras Auteuil, were initially banned from the Parc des Princes when the Qatari businessmen purchased the club.

Whereas, it was actually the more recently formed Collectif Ultras Paris that displayed the Nasser Al-Khelaifi tifo in question.

Therefore, it is incredibly difficult to assess the relationship the club's owners have with its ultras. On the one hand, groups such as the CUP appear to have affection towards them, but on the other, iconic groups such as Supras Auteuil have fallen at their sword.
