Draxler says he’s getting better thanks to his teammates

The German footballer says he’s not scoring as many goals as he wants, but he’s getting better thanks to his club teammates.

Paris Saint-Germain is currently in first place of the French Ligue 1 thanks to 18 wins.

The team has not 56 points, drawing only twice and they are the only club in the league which has yet to lose.

But most impressively is the goals scorer, as PSG has scored 66 goals in 20 matches, allowing only 11 against them.

And German midfielder Julian Draxler is responsible for some of them, as he has 11 goals in 63 matches with the French leaders.

Now he’s set for his 100th appearance with PSG on Sunday against Lyon.

“Yes, that’s a very special number for me. Time goes very quickly… I signed for Paris just two years ago,” the German told the club’s official website.

“I am as happy today as the day I arrived! Sunday will be a big match. The fact that it could be my 100th for Paris just makes it all the more exciting.”

“I think I can do better. But when Neymar and Kylian arrived, I have been playing more and more in midfield, even in front of the defense in recent matches,” he continued.

Report: New offers for Neymar Jr. proposed

In a surprising twist, Real Madrid are reportedly attempting a swoop for PSG star Neymar Jr. with news of other players being offered as...

“I’m not a goal scoring machine like them or Edinson Cavani. But since I’ve been here, I have progressed over the two years, especially since the coach Thomas Tuchel came to the club. As I said, I’m very happy.”

“For me, the most important was against Barcelona here at the Parc des Princes,” he explained his best goal ever scored.

“I think the most beautiful was against Bordeaux at home – the volley with the left foot, from Kylian’s cross. And I also have very good memories of my first goal here at the Parc des Princes, against Bastia, and a little chip over the ‘keeper.”

“Playing there is never easy. Lyon has a very good team, still qualified in the Champions League,” he said about playing in Lyon.

“They have good players and they like to play good football. I think our team is stronger and we want to prove it on Sunday. And that way we continue our undefeated campaign.”
