France Coach Deschamps Defends Striker Randal Kolo Muani despite his Struggles at PSG

Although Randal Kolo Muani is having trouble adapting to life at Paris Saint-Germain, France coach Didier Deschamps is still backing him. 

The striker became PSG's third most expensive signing in club history when he moved from Eintracht Frankfurt for 95m euros in September. 

Joining PSG reunited him with France teammates Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele, the three who played in attack when the national team lost to Argentina in last year's World Cup final. 

But his performances with the French champions have not met expectations, and the trio have failed to impress, notably in the Champions League when they lost to AC Milan this month. 

With three goals and two assists in 11 matches, Kolo Muani was, however, called up by Deschamps for European qualifiers against Gibraltar and Greece. 

"Ah, you don't like Kolo," Deschamps said Monday when asked about the striker's recent displays. 

"You are very hard on him. Too harsh. I may love him too much, but you don't love him enough. 

"You don't see enough of what he can do, even though he can do better."
