There was a lot of hype and expectation for Moise Kean to be the future striker at Juventus after he returned from his loan spell at Verona in 2018.
Instead, a year later, the Turin club sold the Italy international to Everton, but the 20-year-old failed to shine for the Toffees, managing only two league goals in his debut season at the Merseyside club.
In search of regular playing time, Carlo Ancelotti’s man joined Paris Saint-Germain on a loan deal last summer, where he has impressed for the Ligue 1 winners.
Kean has scored 14 goals and registered one assist, and this includes finding the back of the net in PSG’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday.
After his side’s victory at the Camp Nou, the frontman admitted Juve will “always be in his heart”. These comments would have given the Old Lady some hope in bringing Kean back to the club, after they reportedly failed to sign him last summer.
Giovanni Kean, the brother of the Everton owned man, is of the belief ‘maybe Juve were wrong’ to sell Moise to the English club.
“Juventus was a second home for him, they raised him and made him. He became what he is thanks to Juve. In part, I don’t agree with the decision to sell my brother, but in the end, it served him,” Giovanni told Radio Bianconera.
Kean, currently, is enjoying life in Paris, both on and off the pitch, but it wasn’t easy for him initially after leaving his country.
“In my opinion it was very useful for him to go abroad, he has matured on a human and footballing level,” Moise’s brother explained.
“Moving so young abroad alone is never easy. He has no problems in settling in with people, perhaps it was more difficult to change lifestyle, culture, to grow up quickly in certain aspects.”
“In my opinion it served him. What advice did we give him? Just to keep the humility he has, not to get upset and to commit himself “.
