Paris Saint Germain have decided to drop their kit sponsor in order to carry a special message to honour the victims of the Paris attacks.

Emirates Airlines has supported the decision which will see their logo replaced with ‘Je Suis Paris’ on the front of their kit.

The club had committed to paying tribute to the victims with a specially embroidered jersey, but their sponsor has given the green light for it to replace their logo for at least the next two matches.

PSG travel to Malmo to take on the Swedish side in the Champions League tomorrow night and will wear the jersey for Saturday's home clash with Troyes, their first match at the Parc des Princes since the tragic events on November 13.
