Even thought he remains second on their list of most expensive transfers of all time, Steve Mounié is struggling to get in the starting line-up at Huddersfield Town.
The striker has only featured nine times in the opening line up under Jan Siewert and Danny Cowley in the Championship, and even a good spell of form in December and January where he scored five goals in seven games wasn’t enough to convince the manager otherwise.
His last start came in the 3-0 loss to Cardiff, and since then it’s been sub appearance after sub appearance for the Benin international.
Now under lockdown in England like everyone else, the footballer spends his time trying to keep fit as well as playing Mario Kart with his family, which he revealed in an interview with Canal+.
That’s not all, as Mounié has also been at the centre of a big donation of PPE equipment being sent to Benin, as he explained in the video relayed by Afrique Sports.
He said: “You have to try and help as much as you can. The whole Benin national team did a donation of equipment to Benin. It’s a donation of masks, disinfecting gels and gloves to try and protect the population as much as possible, and there are others coming later. I’ll communicate on that.
“It’s all we can do during this difficult period and help each other out as much as possible, show solidarity and try and help those in most difficulty”.
A kind gesture from the Huddersfield man, who is now simply looking forward to getting back on the pitch where he’ll be hoping to show why the Terriers spent close to £12m on him in the first place.
