Former French Midfielder Calls for PSG to Have Confidence in Kean

Paris Saint-Germain forward Moise Kean has somewhat surpassed early expectations over his first games with the club. While Kean did not score in his recent showing against Nantes, the forward did notch a brace in each of his previous two matches. The forward’s promising performances for PSG are bringing to question whether he should continue to hold a starting role on the team.

Kean has earned starts as of late because of Mauro Icardi’s knee injury. The Argentine forward has been out of action since the October international break due to the ailment.

Former French midfielder Reynald Pedros has seen enough of Kean to make a conclusion on the forward’s current standing at PSG. Pedros believes (via Canal+) that Kean should continue to be the team’s starting center forward as long as he continues to string together quality showings.

“He’s the center forward, he scores goals,” Pedros said. “You have to trust him, now is the time to trust him. You have to give him a lot of confidence, and then he will be of service to the team. Then we will have time to know when Icardi will return if he will resume his place or not. If he continues to score goals, he will be the holder.”

Tuchel may end up handling this dilemma on a game-by-game basis.
