The current PSG squad boasts two center-forwards who rank among the elite in Europe. Despite Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos playing crucial roles for their respective national teams, they have struggled to unleash their full footballing potential at the Parisian club.

According to L'Équipe, Luis Enrique harbors doubts about their effectiveness in high-level matches, although he consistently supports them publicly and during training sessions.

Luis Enrique has proven to be an excellent coach at Paris Saint-Germain, not only through results but also in his leadership within the squad and player management. This leadership has contributed to shaping an identity for the Parisian team, both on and off the field.

However, in the case of Kolo Muani and Goncalo Ramos, it appears that their performance and roles in the team fall short of expectations.

Kolo Muani arrived from Germany's Eintracht Frankfurt and has played 20 games for the Parisian club, scoring 7 goals and providing 2 assists. These figures represent a low goal-scoring rate for a center-forward of Kolo Muani's caliber.

This has raised concerns for the 25-year-old, but fans hope it's just a temporary phase, anticipating a resurgence of his goal-scoring ability.

Goncalo Ramos, who joined from Portugal's Benfica, has an even lower goal-scoring rate than the Frenchman Kolo Muani. In 19 games played, he has only netted 4 goals and provided no assists, a disappointing performance for a forward who shone in Portugal.

So far, Goncalo Ramos has fallen short of expectations this season, but like Kolo Muani, it is anticipated that both players will find their form and make significant contributions to the Parisian club in the remainder of the season.
