The eleventh world has begun Excluded: Giroud, Karachawi and Berest’s “Little Sister” Interview!
Before he knew whether or not he would be selected to compete in the Champions Cup against Nantes on Saturday, Hugo Eketek (20) stated for the first time since his arrival at Paris Saint-Germain. In an interview with Le Parisien, the former Reims striker talked about his new life alongside Paris stars such as Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, new coach Christophe Galtier or his dream of joining the France team one day.
First training in Paris Saint-Germain
“I got it very well. Now that’s it, I’m a full PSG player. I signed my contract. There is no pressure to practice when I come to training. I’m happy to be able to play with them, calmly, and to tell the truth, I slept well. Since I’ve been in Paris (laughs)”.
Behind the scenes of his arrival
“I had an appointment with Luis (Campos) who meant a lot to me. It wasn’t that long ago. We talked a lot, he’s someone I consider good. J wanted to come to PSG before this exchange, but he convinced me more. I I don’t put aside everything Newcastle did to get me to come. If I had to go abroad, I would go there. But when PSG wants you and you’re French, you can’t refuse. (…) To convince me you have to talk about sport, what I care about is The game and what can be put into it, we discussed it a lot and see it and see me and we were in complete osmosis.
Competition with Neymar, Mbappe and Messi
“I fear it well because in Paris Saint-Germain, the pace of matches is not the same anywhere else. There are more competitions to play, and by rubbing our shoulders with players like Messi, Neymar and Mbappe on a daily basis, we inevitably progress. And we find solutions to evolve together.”
What does Kylian Mbappe stand for?
“Kylian Mbappe is an inspiration, a player with whom my generation and the next generation recognize because he has an exemplary career.”
“I haven’t spoken specifically with the coach yet, it’s a relationship that will develop over time. But I know that if I’m here, it’s because the coach has given his consent and I’m a player he wants. Once he gives me his trust, I’ll take it back to him on and off the field.”
French national team
“(smiles) Team France, all footballers think about it since the age of 10. But everything is on time. I have just arrived in Paris, I must first take my brands, find my place with my new teammates. For the rest, we will advise when the time comes .
