Recently, the 20-year-old player remained on the bench against Nice and Lens, two very important matches in the race for the title of champion of France. Present at a press conference this Thursday, on the eve of a trip to Angers, Christophe Galtier, the PSG coach, was questioned about his low use of Hugo Ekitike.
“Ekitike works seriously, even more than other players”
“There is no problem, Hugo works seriously, even more than other players when he has no playing time. But there is also the architecture of the team. Circumstances mean that the squad is weakened, we have to keep a certain balance and it is facing very great competition, with the presence of Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi. first explained the 56-year-old French technician.
So, will Hugo Ekitike have more minutes on the clock, or even starts, by the end of the season? ” We will see what will happen in the upcoming matches. But there is no problem between Hugo and me. Obviously he is not happy with this situation, but on the other hand he works a lot in training, ” concluded Christophe Galtier.
