Draxler says his PSG teammates have big egos

The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has accused his teammates of worrying about who will be the club’s top goalscorer.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Julian Draxler believes there’s a big problem at his French Ligue 1 club.

The German footballer believes Edinson Cavani, Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria have big egos, as they all want to be the top goalscorer.

“They [Cavani, Neymar, Mbappe, Di Maria] have big egos, everyone wants to be the top scorer,” Draxler was quoted by Goal.

“In this case, you need someone who plays behind them in the build-up and thinks more defensively.”

“At the beginning, he maybe did not know where to put me. I had the most games, but not the most minutes,” he added.

“We had a disagreement, that happens, but when it’s with Neymar, it’s in the media.”

He explained: “I am far from saying I cannot stand it anymore or I have to go away, on the contrary, I feel very well, I have a super coach and I’m in a super club.”
