Paris: Ligue 1 football champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have announced they will wear ‘Je Suis Paris’ written jerseys without any sponsor’s logo for the next two games in tribute to the victims of the recent terror attacks in the capital city.

PSG will bear the message in their Champions League Group A match against Swedish team Malmo on Wednesday night and on Saturday against Troyes, in Ligue 1, reports Xinhua.

“This message of unity will appear on the shirt in the space usually occupied by our main partner Emirates,” read the club's statement on Monday.

Je Suis Paris (I am Paris) echoes the Je Suis Charlie message that was adopted following the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris last January.
