Jese Rodriguez has issued a warning to Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery after claiming he is not willing to sit on the bench for the Parisians this season.
The former Real Madrid forward sealed a £21million to the Ligue 1 champions earlier this summer but has made just one start – Friday’s 1-1 draw with Saint-Etienne.
Jese faces stiff competition for places up front from Edinson Cavani and Jean-Kevin Augustin but the 23-year-old says he is not willing to play second fiddle at the Parc des Princes this season.

Clubs: Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain
‘Cavani is a great player, but I am no substitute,’ Jese told French newspaper Le Parisien.
‘We must all fight to hold a place in the team. I come here with the desire to play in every game, although I know there are great players in Paris.
‘I have character and I like things to progress quickly. It’s up to me to prove that I deserve to play as a starter.

Unai Emery is preparing his side to face Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday evening
‘I will tell you my target when the season is over, but it is beyond 10 goals.’
Paris Saint-Germain, usually so dominant in the French league, have started the season in uncharacteristically poor form.
Emery’s side have failed to win either of their last two matches and lie in seventh position in the Ligue 1 table.
The Parisians will be hoping for better luck in the Champions League when they host Arsenal in their opening Group A fixture on Tuesday.
