65 minutes. This is Hugo Ekitike’s playing time in the Paris Saint-Germain jersey this season. Suffice to say that the 20-year-old striker has not yet had many opportunities to show himself since his arrival in the capital this summer.

It must be said that the former Rmois has to deal with a lot of competition in attack, where Paris SG aligns Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbapp and Neymar. Just a. Logically, it is difficult for such a young player, however talented, to find a place in Christophe Galtier’s eleven with the presence of these three stars in the squad.

E. Rabesandratana – he’s more a kid than a professional

Apart from this fierce competition, Ekitike does not have an irreproachable attitude, according to Eric Rabesandratana. He is young, but I find that in behavior, he does not correspond at all to what is expected of him as a young person, and especially as a player who should win at PSG over the years. criticized the former Parisian defender for France Bleu Paris, before giving a few examples to explain his thinking.

We need players who are focused on the football and I’m not sure that talking every two seconds, doing the exercises halfway, because he’s bored and he’d rather play the matches, is enough. No, you have to show a perfect state of mind to be considered by the coach. For the moment, I find that he is not yet professional, he is more a kid than a professional. He must grow he concluded.

Galtier positive on Ekitike

Would Galtier’s choices concerning Ekitike be linked to a behavioral problem? However, this is not the message sent this week by the Parisian coach. Hugo is a player with incredible potential. He spent 10 days discovering the very high level when he arrived. It took him several sessions to find his bearings in the game and to be in touch with the team’s offensive animation. I think he is progressing a lot. He is very good in sessions too said the technician at a press conference.

The PSG coach even reassured his player about his future playing time: I told her that the good times were coming very quickly. He works a lot for the team, physically too. He is also working to strengthen himself technically. Very quickly, he will have a lot of playing time. The sequence of matches in October and November, before the World Cup, should indeed allow Ekitike to increase its playing time. Otherwise, its management may raise many questions.
