Xavi Simons: Will the PSG wonderkid be able to live up to the hype?

 

The 18-year-old has a huge following on social media thanks to his time at Barcelona, and made his first steps into first-team football last season

In the aftermath of Paris Saint-Germain's narrow 1-0 win over Caen in the Coupe de France back in February, most of the talk surrounded one major issue.

Despite the game coming just a week before PSG's meeting with Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino had opted to start Neymar against lower-league opposition, only to see the world's most expensive player pick up an injury that would rule him out of facing his former club.

That the majority of the attention fell on one ex-Barcelona playmaker meant that a momentous day for another former Blaugrana attacker could have been overlooked.
