Rising American talent Timothy Weah has told The 42 that he is “really happy” with Paris Saint-Germain and his “incredible” situation in the French capital.
Weah, 18, played 61 minutes and scored in the U.S.’s 3-0 friendly win over Bolivia last week and then went the full 90 in a 2-1 defeat to the Republic of Ireland.
Les Parisiens‘ No. 37 may well feature against France in the U.S.’s final friendly later this week before going on holiday for the summer.
Weah is looking forward to preseason with PSG and is hoping for some clarity on his future from new coach Thomas Tuchel.
“It is an incredible club, an incredible bunch of players, incredible coaching staff,” said Weah of the French champions. “I am learning so much from playing with them each day at such a young age and I am maturing in a way that I really wanted to.
“I am seeing my game really develop for the better. I am really happy to be at PSG — I want to stay there and learn and hopefully get some playing time.
“I feel like loan is a little too early. I still want to be with them, get some more minutes and maybe at the end of next season or in the middle of next season, I will go out on loan. Who knows? It is up to the coach.”
Weah made his full senior debut for PSG in a 0-0 draw away at Caen on the final day of the Ligue 1 season and featured twice more as a substitute in Le Championnat.
