Back after two serious knee injuries, Kévin Monnet-Paquet returned to the pitch at the start of the season. The AS Saint-Etienne winger could take the opportunity to launch his international career. But still we would have to accept to respond to Rwanda’s requests.

A player with a ruptured cruciate ligament in his knee is already unlucky. But what about an element affected by this serious injury twice in a year? This is indeed the nightmare experienced and overcome by Kévin Monnet-Paquet (32 years old). The AS Saint-Etienne forward has returned to competition this season and intends to return to his best level. The former Lorient could even increase his playing time by launching his international career with Rwanda, where he came from thanks to his mother. Recall that in 2018, “KMP” expressed interest in the idea of ​​joining the Wasps.

They called me often, he had confided. It was not always well coordinated. But why not ? Before the end of my career, I think I’ll go play. To return to my mother’s land, where I lived. Suddenly, Rwanda is retrying its chance in view of the double confrontation against Cape Verde on November 9 and 17. But according to information from KT Press, Monnet-Paquet does not respond to calls or written messages from the African selection. To believe that the native of Bourgoin-Jallieu, international Espoirs tricolor six times in 2008, is no longer excited.
