Kevin Trapp targets Germany call-up

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp says that he wants to challenge Manuel Neuer for his starting spot in the German national side.

Kevin Trapp has said that he hopes his move to Paris Saint-Germain will help his chances of being called up to the German national side.

The 25-year-old joined the French champions last week after spending three seasons at Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt.

He will face competition at club level from PSG's first-choice goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu, but he is confident of becoming a regular for the club and making an impact for his country.

"PSG are one of the biggest clubs in the world, I want to win trophies," Trapp told reporters. "I know that Sirigu is a great goalkeeper who won titles. I came to improve myself.

"I want to give the best of me to play in the starting XI, it is my goal. I know what I'm capable of and I have to work to get there. I am not intimidated by the great players of PSG, I also want to win titles. I do not know if I will be number one, the decision rests with the coach. There's no clause in my contract.

"The style of play of a goalkeeper has changed since Manuel Neuer at the World Cup. The keeper is an outfield player, who must anticipate a lot. My goal is to join the national team but Neuer is excellent, everyone knows that."

Trapp made 22 appearances in the Bundesliga for Frankfurt last season.
