Released from his contract with PSG last December, Jesé returned to the net on Thursday. The former Parisian striker equalized for Las Palmas during the large victory (6-1) of his new team against Lugo, in Liga Adelante (Spanish D2).
It’s the end of a long famine for Jesé. The former PSG striker has been waiting for a goal since October 27, 2019. The 28-year-old Spaniard finally scored on Thursday, in a Spanish second division match.
Jesé equalized (13th) during the large victory of Las Palmas (6-1) against Lugo. The former Real Madrid player had not scored since a game between Sporting Portugal and Vitoria de Guimarães. It was for Jesé, in October 2019, his only achievement with the Lisbon club, in 17 meetings.
His first goal in seven games for Las Palmas
Loaned to Sporting Portugal by PSG, Jesé then had a fourth adventure in another club, during his Parisian contract. Arriving in the summer of 2016 at PSG for a sum of 25 million euros, the striker turned out to be a huge flop for the capital club, with 18 games in total and two goals. Back in France at the start of the season, he was released from his contract last December, which allowed him to bounce back in Las Palmas.
Thanks to this great success this Thursday, the Canary Islands club is back to ninth place in Liga Adelante, the Spanish second division. But after 32 days, Las Palmas is already too far in the standings to aim for a climb in La Liga. In the meantime, Jesé has opened his counter with his team, for his seventh game of the season in Spain.
