Since Paris Saint-Germain’s 5-2 victory over Montpellier on the second day of Ligue 1, Kylian Mbappé, who had a disappointing attitude, has been the target of many critics. Thierry Henry, Prime Video consultant, defended the 2018 world champion.
What’s wrong with Kylian Mbappé? While he refused Real Madrid to extend until June 2025 with Paris Saint-Germain, the native of Bondy does not seem happy since the resumption of the season. Suspended during the Champions Trophy then injured against Clermont on the first day, the Parisian number 7 made his return on Saturday evening against Montpellier. During this meeting, the French international had a deplorable attitude. If he missed a penalty, he showed signs of dissatisfaction with his teammates on many occasions. In the second period, he opened his goal counter but also no reaction for him.
A few minutes after the match, if the Team and RMC Sport announced that Kylian Mbappé had some personal problems before the match against MHSC, many observers and supporters criticized his attitude but not Thierry Henry, who defends him: » Find his place ? No. It’s his place, he will of course have to show it as he has shown from the start, but he has nothing to prove to anyone on this kind of question, it’s his place! Now we have to play. How will the coach find something so that he can play the three together, that they are happy? Good luck. Now at PSG, there is always a debate, always a problem… They won 5-2, we are talking about Mbappé. Last year, it’s Neymar and it will always be like that, it’s PSG. »
While Paris Saint-Germain is having an excellent start to the season, Christophe Galtier and Luis Campos must already manage each other’s egos. Next meeting for the capital club, Sunday evening, against Lille during the third day of Ligue 1.
