Kevin Trapp was tipped for big things when he arrived at Parc des Princes but was eventually loaned out to Eintracht Frankfurt.

For Kevin Trapp, the time he spent at Paris Saint-Germain was nothing more than a dream that promised a lot yet delivered little. The German was pushed to the exit by the Ligue 1 giants and has since sealed a loan move to Eintracht Frankfurt where he is the undisputed starter.

The German was in competition with Alphonse Areola for a place in the starting XI but eventually, both men left the French capital as Keylar Navas arrived and the Frenchman joined Real Madrid.

While speaking to Canal Plus, as reported by Foot Mercato, Trapp said that the plan was for him to come back to Paris but with Leonardo coming back, things changed.

“There was a possibility. Last year, I was on loan in Frankfurt and throughout the year, we had discussions with the coach, the sports director and it was clear that I’d come back. In the beginning, I was told that there was a competition between me and Alphonse and at the end of the preseason, we would see who was going to play,” says Trapp.

However, things changed once Leonardo arrived.

“There was a possibility that I would play. After the preseason with Alphonse, it was not something new. But that did not necessarily bother me because I wanted to stay at the club.”

Trapp is disappointed that he wasn’t given a chance but says that he is looking forward to continue playing with Frankfurt.

“Disappointed, it may not be the word but of course, it’s a club that has big goals. It was a club where I saw myself achieving personal goals. It’s like that.

Now I am in a club that is growing and has a lot of good years behind it. So I’m very happy to be a part of this club.”
