Moise Kean gets Champions League debut for PSG

Tuesday, 20 October, 2020 28comments  |  Jump to last

Moise Kean is getting some good experience in the famous colours of Paris St Germain, after making his Ligue 1 debut at the weekend in the 4-0 win at Nimes.

On Tuesday night, he came off the bench to replace former Everton man Idrissa Gana Gueye in the Champions League tie against Manchester United.

Moise Kean has come on for PSG for the second half against Man Utd. On in place of Gueye.

The logic of the Kean loan to PSG still escapes me.

I've just stuck 20 quid on him, Rob... no I've not.

Couldn't care less about the youngster, he never looked as if he wanted to be here. Get the £20M off PSG or Juventus, and wish him good luck for the remainder of his career.

To be honest he doesn't look like he wants to be in Paris either. Just a sullen bugger full stop.

Put in a nasty one there. Well-earned yellow.

He might as well have stayed on the bench.

I didn't think Gana looked too happy there either.

Kean to me seems like a big physical lad that hasn't quite got the pace nor ability to make it to the top.

His workrate is poor too. Zero movement off the ball and no attempt to close down defenders.

We will be lucky to recoup what we paid on the basis of what we've seen from him so far.

Still puzzled as to why we let him go... but it may have been as simple as him (or his agent) angling for a move and Ancelotti saying "If you don't want to be here, then we can't use you."

I just wonder if our Victor ever had a dirty weekend in Italy at the turn of the century?

Don 11,

Pretty sure you're alluding to his physique and profligacy but your comment could easily be misunderstood as racist. I'm confident you didn't intend it that way but just jumping in before someone else views it differently.

Keiran, thanks. I never realised it might be taken that way but you have a point. In my defence I'd just like to say I'm a blue-eyed, fair-haired white who in the 90's was stopped in the city centre of Newark, New Jersey by a mounted cop who pointed out that I was the only white guy on the street. I'd never even noticed.

Thick possibly, racist never!

I can't believe that Sky's Paul Merson commenting on the tackle by Moise Keen in tonight's match, seems to imply that being associated with Everton you'd expect him to be a 'dirty' player.

Took Gana off and there was the space for Rashford to score. Keep it going, Man Utd, so you'll have lots of games ahead.

Bill @10; I'm still puzzled why we bought him... must have been a hell of a YouTube clip.

Slightly off topic, but I hope we don't regret not bringing Josh King in, we've lost Richie for three games, and that's the game following the Window closure. We're skating on thin ice up front unless goals will start coming more regularly from other areas.

Hope and pray no more suspensions or injuries to key players. Got to agree with Patrick above, Moise Kean, unless he's naturally like that, doesn't look happy anywhere does he?

This loan made no sense, he didn't suddenly wake up in the last moment and realise he didn't want to be here. The club knew what's cooking and really should have gone out to sign an attacking player even if he didn't leave.

Don (11),

I thought your comment was brilliant! It would only be taken wrong by someone looking to be offended...

Which is a whole lot of people in this modern world Danny!

What do you make of Merson, Patrick? I thought his little smile was full of mischief, I wouldn’t be offended by that.

I’m sure loads of Liverpudlians, would be jumping at the telly and shouting “look even Merson is on them dirty blue nose bastards” and some of them probably won’t even get on the irony of his little smirk?

Don- I'm with Danny on this! Very funny.

Watched both games as it happens. Moise definitely looked more enthusiastic and lively in the Nimes game than he ever did with us. He was unlucky not to score as well.

If he can get the minutes from Tuchel, he'll finish in the goals over there. Nimes were dire, they went down 4-0 in the end but it should have been double that.

He was nowhere near as involved against Man Utd in the Champions League, however. The gulf in class between Kean and his strike partner Mbappe was absolutely enormous. In Kean's defense, it was absolutely pissing down with rain and he's still very new to the squad but, if he wants regular Champions League football, he'll need more than that showing.

For what it's worth, I just figured Moise as a modern version of Anelka. The grass is always greener somewhere else, and you end up with more money as well so you may as well go chase it. The ideal outcome is Tuchel uses Moise in the league to spare either Mbappe's or Neymar's legs, he bangs in double digits and then we make a profit when he makes a permanent move next summer. I don't see a future where he ends up back with us even with my wildest imagination.

I wonder how he then impressed the manager of the Italian national team?

Sandro is outscoring Kean at the moment :-)

Was glad to see the back of him to be honest.
Hopefully he doesn't come back!
His recent mutterings on various social media channels are well, just a bit shit really.

He is supposed to be one of the hottest properties in Europe, rated by many top coaches.
I am very disappointed that he didn’t make with us. In his defence he didn’t get a run of games to bed in properly. Maybe his attitude was bad in training, who knows?
I just hope we don’t lose out financially.

Good to see him getting game time. That's what all youngster's need to improve.

He's very raw but if he keeps it simple, listens, learns he could be a good player. But, I don't think he's smart enough to make it as a top class player.

I see the Anelka comparison also. Kind of introverted, intense, broody with family members eager to talk too much to the press. I think he can be a success but like you I don’t see Everton as a good fit. Marco Materazzi had a spectacular career but his time at Everton wasn’t productive. I understand why we signed him, I think he will do well and I hope he does but somehow him and Everton don’t seem to mesh.
