Last season, Randal Kolo Muani was one of the great discoveries of European football. His performances in Frankfurt earned him a place in the France World Cup squad. At the end of the summer, he was bought by PSG for 90 million euros, but his performances did not pay off as expected.
Eintracht Frankfurt acquired him for free in the summer of 2022. Randal Kolo Muani was thus under no pressure. Not that he wasn’t expected to perform well. He was already showing interesting potential at Nantes. But the way he introduced himself in Germany surprised many people.
He played 50 competitive games for the traditional Bundesliga side with a record of 26 goals and 17 assists. He was one of the best players not only in the German top flight but also in Europe. He even won a place in the France national team, where there is huge competition in attack.
He also looked at the World Cup, however, where he was the sad hero of the final when he was incredibly saved by Emiliano Martínez in a 100% scoring chance, which meant that the Argentines became World Champions.
His head, however, is strong. But in September, he signed for PSG. This time, he faces a lot more pressure. He didn’t exactly come for free. On the contrary. The French giant paid 90 million euros for his arrival. He had high hopes for him.
But has the 25-year-old lived up to them so far? Not quite. His engagement is not a flop, but it’s not a great success either. However, Kolo Muani believes that he can convince all the critics and doubters that the money for him was not thrown out of the window.
Kolo Muani wants to repay PSG with his performance
PSG struggled at the start of the season. Moreover, it was unknown what would happen with Kylian Mbappé. Investing in Randal Kolo Muani must be the right move. It’s just that the 25-year-old offensive all-rounder hasn’t played enough to show his worth yet.
His numbers aren’t bad at all. 27 games, 11 goals, 3 assists. Considering that he hasn’t even started half of the games in the starting lineup, it’s actually an excellent record. But the player himself understandably wants more.
“I’ve seen the criticism ever since I signed for PSG. It makes me work on myself. It’s good to be under fire, it’s like a piece of advice that you have to take into account, you have to improve to make the criticism go away. It’s logical. And the price I came at? Just more pressure that I have to deal with. I’m spending little by little,” he expressed to Onze Mondial.
So Kolo Muani’s goal is clear: ” It’s hard to digest, but I’ll tell you a secret. In time, people will say that the 90 million euros was a good price for Randal Kolo Muani, even if they are now tapping their foreheads.”
