PSG: Mbappé fired by the Neymar-Messi duo, impossible

After the final of the Champions Trophy, for which he was suspended, Kylian Mbappé misses the first match of the Ligue 1 season. While the Neymar-Messi duo is running, the tricolor star of PSG does not arouse any doubt.

A week after winning their first title of the season, thanks to their clear victory against FC Nantes (4-0), Paris Saint-Germain start the French championship with a trip to Clermont. Common point to these two meetings, the absence of Kylian Mbappé. Suspended for the Champions Trophy, the French player is forfeited this time due to a problem with adductors, information made official on Friday by the capital club. Even if Christophe Galtier would obviously have preferred to have his number 7 available, Mauricio Pochettino’s successor knows that the duo of Lionel Messi and Neymar has been working at full speed since the start of the preparation phase. The two South American stars are as sharp as ever and Galtier is openly delighted. Kylian Mbappé will therefore not be alone in leading PSG’s game as was the case last season. But the world champion has nothing to fear.

Can’t wait for Mbappé to come back, PSG needs him

Because lately, and given the performance of the two former Barça players, some have been considering the possibility that the return of Kylian Mbappé will not be as simple as expected. When he was questioned in Le Parisien on this subject, Christophe Galtier first laughed before responding seriously. ” We are all waiting for Kylian’s return, me first. By deciding to stay at PSG, he sent a very strong signal, showing his desire to succeed and to be among the first to win this magnificent trophy with Paris. Kylian is an in-dis-pen-sand element of PSG. Last season, he carried PSG in an incredible way. He will return to this naturally strong trio. I can’t wait to see what it will bring. If it is easy to reintegrate Mbappé into the heart of the Messi-Neymar tandem? When you have a world-class player, you don’t think, you put him on the pitch and then you coordinate. I know, having recently reviewed their matches, that they were terribly good together at the end of last season. Why wouldn’t they be again? “, wonders, falsely the coach of Paris Saint-Germain.

Just over two months after his contract extension until 2025 at PSG, Kylian Mbappé has lost none of his talent and motivation. And of course, he will find his place as soon as physically his worries are to be combined with the past. But, it is clear that with a 100% Lionel Messi and Neymar, which he openly wanted, Mbappé will have to agree to share the light. It only remains to be seen whether his two teammates will continue to display the good intentions seen throughout the preparation phase, because with the season lived in 2021-2022, because while the French player chained the masterclasses, the Argentinian and the Brazilian often disappointed, and even worse since in the spring the departure of the two had been mentioned.
