Paris Saint-Germain manager Christophe Galtier plans to provide more playing time minutes to Pablo Sarabia “in the coming weeks.”
Not much has gone Pablo Sarabia’s way since his return to PSG over the recent summer transfer window following his one-season loan stint at Sporting CP. The Spanish international has failed to record a single goal contribution in 14 Ligue 1 matches played so far this season. He has also earned a mere three starts in league play over the ongoing campaign.
For Galtier, he expects more from Sarabia, and he plans to soon provide him with an opportunity to prove his worth to the club.
“Concerning Pablo, he is a player who has not played much, also because of my choices,” Galtier said during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Angers match. “It is always difficult for a player to find his bearings quickly. He was very interesting at the beginning of the match in the French Cup. He delivered some good balls on an offensive level. In the second half, we corrected his positioning to have a better balance. I have read and seen the criticisms.
“Obviously, he himself cannot be satisfied with the performance he was able to make, but I think that the criticisms were, in my opinion, exaggerated. He needs to play. He will have the opportunity to play in the coming weeks and the more he plays, the more confident he will be.”
Sarabia has one more season left on his current contract at PSG, and as of late, he has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.
It will be noteworthy to see whether Galtier will elect to start Sarabia in PSG’s Ligue 1 home fixture against Angers on Wednesday.
