Emery: Augustin and Rabiot PSG’s future

Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery believes that Jean-Kevin Augustin and Adrien Rabiot are the future of the club, although Augustin needs more playing time to gain experience.

Augustin has featured mainly from the bench for PSG this season although he has played more regularly for the team's reserve outfit.

Rabiot, meanwhile, has become a regular for the Parisians in the last couple of campaigns, and Emery takes the view that the 21-year-old benefitted from going out on loan to Toulouse in 2012/13.

He told the club's official website: "[Augustin] has to play and gain experience in order to show his ability to play. For the moment, he is training with us and the reserve team.

"He's the future of PSG, like Adrien Rabiot, who was fortunate to play a lot with Toulouse before coming back here. To go out on loan could be a good decision for the club and the player."

The Paris-born youngster has scored once for the first team in 30 appearances and is touted to have a big future in the European game. The teenager has proved to be prolific during his time with France's U19 and U21 sides.
