Former Paris Saint-Germain youth product Kingsley Coman appeared on the Canal Football Club show. During a segment, the 24-year-old shed light on his experience resulting in his departure and how the capital club can improve, giving young players a chance to succeed.
“It wasn’t financial. I thought I deserved more playing time. This situation, I couldn’t have it at PSG. I had asked for a loan which had not been accepted, and it was by I made this decision,” Coman said.
“What is difficult in the PSG situation is that they want results right away. With the development of young people, we don’t have results right away; you have to wait three or four years. Maybe they didn’t have that patience.”
PSG is reflecting on where they want to go following their humiliating exit from the UEFA Champions League Round of 16, squandering a 2-0 aggregate score lead to Real Madrid.
Many supporters want to see young players get an opportunity to play for Les Parisiens rather than seeing them exit and thrive elsewhere like Christopher Nkunku and Moussa Diaby. It will be interesting to see whether youth players a more prominent role for whoever is in charge at PSG.
