Foot PSG – Freewheeling Ekitike at PSG, the files come out

Recruited for 30 million euros from Reims this summer, Hugo Ekitike is almost unused by Christophe Galtier at PSG.

During the summer transfer window, Paris Saint-Germain broke the bank for recruiter Hugo Ekitike from Stade de Reims. Courted by Newcastle, the young French striker finally joined PSG for more than 30 million euros, including bonuses. The arrival of Hugo Ekitike in the French capital pushed Mauro Icardi even further towards the exit but since the start of the season, the ex-reims striker has been completely unused by Christophe Galtier. What’s fault ? According to consultant Éric Rabesandratana, former captain of Paris Saint-Germain, Hugo Ekitike owes his low playing time to an obvious lack of seriousness in training and to certain whims, while he lives more and more badly his low playing time and his non-participation in PSG matches, including when Christophe Galtier turns slightly. Unfortunately, turnover rarely concerns Neymar, Mbappé and Messi in Paris. Which does not allow Hugo Ekitike to earn minutes in Ligue 1…

“I’m not convinced by Hugo Ekitike because he showed mental weaknesses. 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 impose himself at PSG over the years. delivered the consultant on France Bleu Paris before continuing. “We need players who focus on the football and I’m not sure that complaining every two seconds, doing the exercises halfway, because it bores him and he would rather play the games, 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. You have to grow” concluded Éric Rabesandratana, for whom Hugo Ekitike will above all have to get to work and be silent if he wants to claim to gain playing time at PSG in the weeks to come. Because it is certainly not by sulking that he will convince Christophe Galtier to give him a chance in the capital.
