The Death of French Football?

Anyone looking forward to Paris Saint Germain playing Lyon next month will be disappointed. Clubs are going on strike, and a dozen games are being postponed, possibly even cancelled. It's all down to an impending tax, a promise Socialist President François Hollande made during his campaign: salaries over one million euros a year will be taxed 75%. Could this be the death knell for French football?

  • Dan LEVY, France 24 Sports Editor;
  • Erwan LE NOAN, Tax Lawyer and Business Consultant;
  • Anne Elisabeth MOUTET, Columnist, Sunday Telegraph;
  • Pascal PERRI, Economist and Author of "Don't Shoot Football".
