Hugo Ekitike (PSG), scorer against Auxerre: “I have absolute self-confidence”

How do you feel after this first goal with PSG (during 5-0 home win against Auxerre)?
It shows the work I’ve been doing in recent weeks, I’m happy, I’m a good dynamic. It’s nice to score this first goal at the Park more than outside.

You are the least used outfield player this season. Did you have any doubts about your ability to make it into the rotation?
No, never, I have absolute self-confidence. Now, of course, there are more complicated situations, you have to be patient, it’s part of your career. I have the best players in the world in front of me, and I can only learn. No matter the situation, I have to do my job on the pitch.

“Last week, I said that when I score, there will be plenty of goals, it will be in the second half of the season”

What did you hold on to during this difficult time?
I spoke a lot to Kylian (Mbappé), he gave me a lot of advice. Kylian is a great lodger. When I see him working, it makes me want to. He’s happy for me too. He gives me a lot of advice, sometimes it’s hard to hear but he’s a huge player. This is what is happening now, I could have scored before. Last week, I said that when I score, there will be plenty of goals, it will be in the second half of the season.

How did you experience the celebration of your teammates on your goal?
Already they hurt me (laughs). I have a special relationship with them because I am younger, there is pressure around PSG. It’s a goal that everyone was waiting for, especially me. I am roomed a lot. That’s why they came, it’s nice. It’s a hazing.

What is your assessment of your first months with Paris?
I am very happy to be here. You have to work, don’t give up, you have to have the mind and I have it. I proved it today (sunday) and I will continue. We are in a huge club, it is normal that people have expectations.

What relationship do you have with your trainer Christophe Galtier?
He is someone who listens, he has a lot of experience. I talk a lot with him, he was happy for me. It proves that hard work pays off. A few weeks ago ? We discussed, he told me what he thought I could improve. »
