Moise Kean has missed the last couple of fixtures due to testing positive for the coronavirus. Now that the ten-day quarantine period has expired, the 21-year-old can now return to the squad. The forward recently spoke with PSG TV (via Canal Supporters) to discuss various topics, including the anticipation to return to the pitch.
“There, I feel good. The last few days, I have been training and feeling ready to join the team and face the matches. It was individual training, and tomorrow (Monday), I will return with the group. I’m happy to join my teammates,” Kean said.
Before testing positive for the virus, one of Kean’s last fixtures was the first-leg victory against FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Kean would score one of the four goals and touched on the capital club’s advancement to the quarter-finals.
“Yeah, it was hard to stay home and watch the game. Wednesday’s game was difficult, but we kept a good result, and we are focused on the other games,” Kean said.
After a difficult season with Everton FC, Kean moved to the French giants, where he tried to jumpstart his young career. Since arriving in the fall, the 21-year-old has become a crucial figure for PSG.
“Dreaming always feels good. Also, with PSG, it’s something that I appreciate. I work every day to improve myself. We hope to do more,” Kean said.
Finally, Kean touched on how he’s acclimating to playing alongside some of the world’s best players, such as Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappé.
“Next to players like that, you have to learn and watch. Me, I have the chance to be next to them. I watch them every day,” Kean said.
