PSG restore Phil Collins’ ‘Who Said I Would’ as entrance music after being blasted by DJ Snake for using his song


PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have restored Phil Collins’ famous track ‘Who Said I Would’ as their entrance music after complaints from fans.

The French side had replaced the 1985 song with a tune from DJ Snake – and even he wanted the Genesis icon to make a comeback.

PSG announced on Friday: “Faced with the emotion aroused by the change in input music of the players, Phil Collins returns to the Park on Sunday.

“At the same time, discussions continue with many artists to strengthen our identity with an ambitious, contemporary and Parisian sound.”

Collins’ track was used by PSG for nearly 30 years before replacing it with DJ Snake’s ‘Intro Mixed’ for games against Strasbourg and Clermont.

But the Paris-born DJ, 35, asked the club to reverse their move as the bespoke track was not intended for repeated use at Le Parc des Princes.

In a message to PSG and the club’s fans, DJ Snake tweeted: “I provided a soundtrack for Lionel Messi’s presentation video.

“I found out, like you, that it was used as intro music for the players’ entrance when it’s not appropriate.

“I didn’t want to harm the club by speaking out on this subject, but I can’t accept this situation as a supporter and you know the love I have for our colours.”

PSG’s director of diversification Fabien Allegre defended the club’s decision to amend their pre-match playlist in an interview with Le Parisien.

He said: “It was not a mistake. We are very attached to this song. I hear it, and our will is not to eliminate it from all our matches.

“Why couldn’t we have ‘Go West’ [by the Pet Shop Boys] or the Phil Collins song when the players arrive for the warm-up?

“I got a lot of positive feedback from people who enjoyed the song.”
