He made just one league appearance for PSG last season, but looks likely to be more involved this term as Tuchel places his faith in youth.

The Wall Street Journal (paywall) reported earlier this week that parents nationwide have started hiring "Fortnite" coaches to make their children better at the video game, which has risen to popularity in the past year with its battle royale mode. "Fortnite" is becoming a "social proving ground" for kids, The Wall Street Journal reported. Apparently, some parents did not mind whether the title was violent nor how much time their children spent playing Fortnite. Another dad, Adrian Luff, is putting all three of his Fortnite-playing kids through lessons, with tongue-in-cheek dreams that at least one them will get good enough to "fund my retirement". We're not sure if that will ruin Fortnite for the kids, but they'll undoubtedly move on to the next big thing eventually. The reasoning goes that being good at the game has a positive impact on his social standing: "There's pressure not to just play it but to be really good at it", she told the American paper. However, the lessons that he has received has now allowed him to "throw down 10 to 20 wins" fairly easily. In June there were reportedly over 125 million players that have played Fortnite Battle Royale, allowing Epic Games to reach over $8 billion in value. While this may sound like a silly, one-off trend, over 1,400 tutors have been contracted since March from one site alone.

Unfortunately, this whole tutoring thing means it's going to be even harder for me to get Victory Royales going forward!
