Speaking to Canal Plus after scoring four goals in two matches with the France U21s during this international break, attacker Odsonne Édouard discussed his ambitions for the upcoming campaign.
“For me this is a great source of satisfaction and pride. It is always important to score goals as an attacker. For my first two games, this can only mean good things for what’s up next. My aim, I’ve already had this discussion with the coach, is to play in as many matches as possible. And to have a place as a starter and a leader in the squad. But it is up to me to prove on the pitch that I deserve that. I am thinking about it (the Olympic Games), however we are still far away from that. We have a season to do. For the moment I am going to enjoy each match with the French national team to try to show my abilities.”
“Things are working well (with Celtic), but it is down to work. I give everything and that is also important on the pitch… PSG is the club of my heart, I still have friends of mine over there who grew up with me in the youth set-up. For the moment, it is not really in my head (to come back to PSG). For the moment I am playing, I am enjoying myself and we will see what happens in the future.”
