The PSG supporters club, Collectif Ultras Paris, has called for the resignation of the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, after “killing” the “magic” of the city.
Fans raised a banner during Les Parisiens’ Ligue 1 match against Lille on Saturday night with a message addressed to the mayor.
The banner displayed at the Auteuil stand in the Parc des Princes read: “Hidalgo kills Paris and it’s magical.” While the fans chanted ‘Hidalgo Renuncia’.
The banner was revealed shortly after it was confirmed that PSG would be leaving the Parc des Princes, which has been their home since 1974.
Les Parisiens revealed they were leaving the iconic venue earlier in the week, claiming City had decided the stadium was not for sale.

The club owned by QSI, a cash-rich Qatari sponsor, wanted to stay and own the stadium but, after eight years of discussions, they will have to look elsewhere.
PSG said last year it would explore alternatives after Paris Mayor Hidalgo said the stadium was not for sale, a position City Hall confirmed on Tuesday.
Paris deputy mayor for sports Pierre Rabadan said: “A sale is not desirable, because it would be a decision with no turning back.”
Rabadan added: “That is why today we must rule out the sale of the Parc des Princes.” “We don’t want to sell the legacy of Paris.”
The Parc des Princes has been the home of Paris Saint-Germain since 1974, four years after the club was founded.
In January, PSG said it had invested more than 85 million euros ($92 million) in stadium maintenance costs.
At the time, PSG said it was committed to investing another €500 million in renovations to be able to compete with other top-level clubs in Europe.
Instead, the club will focus on finding a new home. The Club has not set a deadline for his departure – according to 90min.com.
The first option is the Jean-Bouin Stadium, with a capacity of 20,000 people, also owned by the city of Paris, located near the Parc des Princes.
One option is the Stade Jean-Bouin, with a capacity for 20,000 people, located near the Parc des Princes.
Another option could be the state-owned Stade Sebastien Charlety, which has a capacity of 20,000 people.
It currently hosts the PSG women’s team and also hosts rugby and American football matches.
A second option could be the state-owned Stade Sebastien Charlety, which has a capacity of 20,000 spectators. It is currently home to tiny Paris FC, but PSG would demolish it before building a new stadium that can seat 75,000 fans.
The third site is the 30,000-capacity Paris La Défense Arena, home of the Racing 92 rugby team. They are scheduled to return to their renovated Yves-Du-Manoir stadium after the Olympic Games.
PSG could also consider building a new stadium near their training ground in Poissy. But that would pose logistical problems, since it is based 25 kilometers from the center of Paris.
