Retired from the French team since 2018 and from the world of football since December 2022, Blaise Matuidi has converted to the world of entrepreneurship for several years, anticipating his post-sports career. For an evening this Wednesday, January 25, the former PSG player will take his place on the jury seat of the show “Who wants to be my partner?” on M6. Last year, the player had already passed a small head in video and confirms his interest in this world of business as he explained to the Parisian.
“It came to me during my last years in Paris and then in Italy. I had the chance to meet people who made me want to open up to this world. Especially since football only lasts for a while. So we had to think about tomorrow. And finally, the gift of self, the spirit of leadership, the sense of sacrifice… There aren’t that many differences between a top athlete and an entrepreneur. Although it was not easy. I had to hang on. But that’s also what I like: nothing is certain and you can reach the moon if you give yourself the means. Kind of like football actually.”
