Thomas Meunier worried about Paris Saint-Germain future after unfulfilling season
Thomas Meunier said he felt “unfulfilled” at Paris Saint-Germain last season under Unai Emery and hopes that the club don’t doubt his abilities.
Meunier, 26, was a key contributor for Belgium as their “golden generation” finished third at the World Cup, losing to eventual champions France in the semifinal before beating England in the consolation match on Saturday.
And speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws regarding his future in Paris, Meunier said: “PSG need to show me that they absolutely want me and promise me an important role. I love PSG, but in a sense, I feel unfulfilled in Paris.
“I want to feel that PSG and the new coach [Thomas Tuchel] are confident in me. I did not feel that last season. What will Tuchel bring? He will be very important in my decision to stay or go. I think PSG know that my World Cup was excellent. What remains to be seen is if they doubt my abilities.
“I hope that they will change their stance, because I do not want to relive last season. Several offers for me have already been presented to PSG.”
Meanwhile, Meunier’s PSG teammate Kylian Mbappe left no doubt over where he’d be plying his trade at club next season, telling reporters in the mixed zone after France’s 4-2 finals win against Croatia on Sunday.
When 19-year-old Mbappe, who won the best young player award in Russia, was asked if he’d be at PSG for the upcoming season, he said: “Of course. 100 percent.”
