Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe, a Parisian titi in Dijon
By welcoming Dijon to the Parc des Princes, PSG will meet a young titi to him: Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe. A man who quickly understood that he had to leave the capital to have a chance to play at the high level. And too bad if the one who is loaned with a purchase option in Côte d’Or would not stain the Parisian workforce.
It’s a no-brainer to say that Dijon’s start to the season is not optimal. Good last in the standings, Stéphane Jobard’s men have still not won the slightest meeting (2 draws and 5 defeats), planting only 4 small goals for 14 conceded. However, everything is not to be thrown at the DFCO and there are even some nice surprises. Among them, Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe. Holder during the seven days of Ligue 1 and scorer in the draw against Montpellier (2-2), the young 19-year-old midfielder will probably have even more desire than his friends to make a positive result at the Parc des Princes. A stadium that he will have long dreamed of walking with the Paris Saint-Germain jersey, before being sent by Leonardo on loan to the Côte d’Or where he will probably stay a few more months, the Dijon club having an option of purchase at 4 million euros. And given the thunderous debut of “Dina”, this clause should quickly be paid.
Leave one day, with no return
Arrived in Paris at the age of 12 from AAS Sarcelles, Eric Junior Dina-Ebimbe believed for a long time that he could wear the blue and red tunic professionally. He has, in any case, ticked all the boxes to achieve this. Outclassed upon his arrival at PSG, the all-terrain midfielder has a series of high-quality services – even if he suffers from a sizeable deficit – in all generations before signing pro in May 2018. The beginning of glory? Well not quite, since Dina-Ebimbe then realizes that it is not easy for the Parisian titis to find a place in the pro group. The fault, probably, with the presence of his elder Christopher Nkunku. The latter is capable, like him, of covering all the positions of the midfielder, from torchbearer to right midfielder, as EJDE does very well in Dijon, where he most often plays to the right of 4-2-3. -1 by Stéphane Jobard.
