PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

Like his older brother Socrates, Rai was also an attacking midfielder but unlike his more acclaimed sibling he would have much success playing in Europe.
Already a World Club Cup winner for his home team Sao Paulo in 1992, Rai moved to Paris the following year and immediately helped them to only PSG's second ever league title.

He played for five seasons in Ligue 1, three seasons of which his scoring was in double digits.
Rai won all four domestic trophies in his time at PSG, and proved essential as the capital outfit won the 1996 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, scoring twice in a 3–2 win against Parma.
In 1998 the tug of a return to Sao Paulo proved to good to turn down and he left France to finish his career at the Morumbi.

Upon his arrival as president of PSG in 1973, Daniel Hechter designed an unprecedented shirt, which was used throughout the 1970s and became a strong symbol of the capital club. The so-called Hechter shirt was blue with a red central and vertical band framed by white edgings. Daniel Hechter inspired himself in his design of the Eiffel Tower logo to create the famous shirt that premiered in the 1973-74 season.

PSG Football Club was established on 12 August 1970 after a merger between Stade Saint-Germain and a group of investors united under the banner of virtual club Paris FC.
Top-tier status was attained within four years and by the end of the 70's, "Les Rouge-et-Bleu" were ready to embark upon a historic decade.
The capital side is, along with Olympique de Marseille, one of only two French clubs to have won a European competition, claiming the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1996.
