The life of a reserve goalkeeper can be lonely.
Just ask Kevin Trapp, who has hardly touched a ball for PSG this season thanks to the development of Alphonse Areola.
The international break presented Trapp with a rare opportunity to get out of the house, so to speak, as Germany met France in Cologne’s RheinEnergieStadion.
Unfortunately there was no clean sheet as Trapp was beaten twice by France’s top goalscorer in 2017, Alexandre Lacazette.
But the 27-year-old did at least get a full 90 minutes under his belt.
In doing so Trapp has now played more minutes against PSG team-mates Kylian Mbappe, Adrien Rabiot and Layvin Kurzawa than he has played with them.
Talk about being a stranger.
Trapp’s decline is all the more lonely given he was PSG’s no.1 for most of last season.
He was signed from Frankfurt in 2015 having previously played for Kaiserslautern.
We think it’s probably time he got on the move again.
