In the last hours of the transfer window, Randal Kolo Muani applied tremendous pressure on Eintracht Frankfurt's top brass, leaving no stone unturned in his bid to seal a move to PSG. In a captivating interview with PSG TV, the rising French football sensation unraveled the motivations behind his decision to embark on a journey to the City of Lights.
Kolo Muani's PSG odyssey teetered on the precipice, with moments of uncertainty looming large. Prolonged negotiations between the Parisian giants and Eintracht Frankfurt seemed insurmountable. The 24-year-old striker's unwavering determination, albeit at the expense of frustrating German fans, ultimately bore fruit as he inked his commitment to the French capital.
The native of Bondy laid bare the emotions that fueled his move, articulating on PSG TV, “It's a club I supported as a kid and it's where I grew up. This is my city, so I did my best to come here. It's a pleasure to go back to my bases and do my best with the club we love."
Under the visionary stewardship of Luis Enrique and the indefatigable efforts of Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who personally assumed control of negotiations during a seemingly stalemated phase with Frankfurt, Kolo Muani appears to have been utterly convinced. The French international effused, "I am excited by what the coach is implementing with this new team and this project that attracts me a lot (...) then I saw that the president was doing a lot so that I could come."
Kolo Muani's scoring prowess was laid bare in his impressive tally of 23 goals, complemented by 17 assists across all competitions in the previous season with Eintracht Frankfurt. He asserted his unwavering allegiance, declaring: "ultimately committed to this jersey", a sentiment that will undoubtedly resonate profoundly with PSG's fervent fan base.
