Jonathan, Paris Saint-Germain has now won this title for the fourth year in a row…
"We are very proud! Winning this trophy in my first season here was already very satisfying. Winning it this year shows just how consistent we've been. Winning it once is difficult, but keeping the trophy is even harder. People don't necessarily realise that are work isn't just about the pitch at the Parc des Princes: there's also the pitches at the Ooredoo Training Centre, the Youth Academy, the Campus Paris Saint-Germain, the pitches in Miami for the upcoming US Summer Tour… It's a team job, starting with my assistants, Arnaud Méline at the Parc des Princes and Thomas Ovadia at the Ooredoo Training Centre. This trophy is a reward for our hard work on all these pitches."

With an average of 19.1/20, the pitch at the Parc des Princes is almost perfect…
"There's no such thing as perfect! We are very happy with this award, but we have already started planting the grass for next season. We can't rest on our laurels. By definition, it's impossible to reach perfection. The day we think we've made it, that's when everything will fall apart. You have to keep improving. I, myself, am very critical of our work. I see all the little details that other people don't see – I worry about things that people can't even imagine. Perhaps that's why we're here today."

What's your secret?
"That's the million-dollar question! Everyone asks that question. Honestly, I just don't know. I think you have to go back to when I started, in Northern Ireland, when I was a young man. My father was a passionate gardener and I loved football. My job is a mix of the two. I think the most important thing is that it's a passion. I love my job. When I was studying in England, my first job was at Wembley, one of the best stadiums in the world. That pathway is why I'm here today."
