Unai Emery asks for Jesé Rodríguez improvement

Unai Emery has said that he’d like to see better progression from Jesé Rogríguez at Paris Saint Germain.

During a press conference following PSG’s 2-0 win over Angers on Tuesday, the Spanish coach congratulated various players for their performance, however singled out the former-Real Madrid forward for a need to improve.

Jesé "could be better" - Emery 

“The team is working well and all the new players are doing what’s asked of them,” he said. “I’m happy with the performance of Krychowiak, Miller and Hatem. I hope that Jesé progresses – it could be better – little by little.”

Out-of-favour Jesé

The striker, who signed for PSG from Los Blancos in the summer, has played most of his football from the bench this season and has scored just one goal in 10 games.

Signing Jesé a mistake - PSG fans 

Jesé has also hit the headlines more for his lifestyle than his football since arriving at the club. With that as the backdrop, L'Equipe ran an online poll last month, asking if PSG had made a mistake in signing Jesé. The answer was a resounding 'oui'. With 20,000 votes cast, 75% said that yes, Jesé's signing had been a mistake. Only 19% still hold out hope that the transfer will turn out well, while 6% weren't sure or didn't vote.
