Kevin Trapp unsure of PSG future as he targets Germany World Cup spot

Kevin Trapp unsure of PSG future as he targets Germany World Cup spot
From ESPN - November 15, 2017

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp says that he must be playing regularly over the second half of the season if he is to go with Germany to the World Cup in Russia next summer.

Trapp, 27, played the full 90 minutes for Germany in a 2-2 friendly draw with France in Cologne on Tuesday and has now played more minutes for his country than for club this campaign, as he remains firmly behind Alphonse Areola in the pecking order for PSG.

"I am happy to have been able to play," Trapp told journalists in the mixed zone after the match. "I wanted to repay the coach [Joachim Low] for his confidence in me. Playing me was not the obvious option.

"I will do everything to go to the World Cup. However, it is complicated for me right now. I am working each day to be ready.

Trapp revealed that Emery has not made it clear whether or not he will play in PSG's domestic cup games and addressed recent rumours linking him with a move to Borussia Dortmund.

"As far as the World Cup is concerned, I absolutely have to be playing," Trapp added. "I do not know if I will play for PSG in the domestic cups, we have not spoken about that yet. If I am not going to play, I will need to think.

"I really need to play because the national team coach has insisted that I need to be performing with my club.

"I need to ask myself questions, reflect and speak with the club. However, for now, I am at PSG and not Dortmund or anywhere else. My head is with PSG, I have a five-year contract and I am going to give everything."
