Paris Saint-Germain youth product El Chadaille Bitshiabu played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw against RC Strasbourg Alsace on Saturday at the Stade de la Meinau Strasbourg.
Bitshiabu spoke with Prime Video, where the media outlet asked the young defender about playing with Lionel Messi, who scored the lone goal, and Kylian Mbappe.
“It’s once in a lifetime that we [get to be teammates],” Bitshiabu told Prime Video (h/t Paris Fans).
Furthermore, Bitshiabu states that both players lead him and other young players to look to find their footing on the first team.
“Yes, yes, yes, especially when we are in times of crisis, they are there to support us and that is great of them,” Bitshiabu continued.
The teenage defender has an uncertain future in the French capital as Bitshiabu’s name has been linked to a move away from PSG, likely landing in the Bundesliga.
It will be interesting to see if the young center-back will remain with the capital club past this 2022-23 season since the France international defender has one more year left on his deal.
Should Bitshiabu decide not to extend, PSG will be forced to sell the player this summer.
