Zapping Our Mondial EXCLUDED: The “Little Brother” interview with Matteo Guendouzi!
When something does not please Kylian Mbappé, it can often be seen quite clearly. Last night at the Parc des Princes, it was visible that the way Mauricio Pochettino had decided to put him back on the ground, on the left lane to leave the axis to Messi in false number nine, did not suit him. In the first period in particular, Mbappé displayed a sulky attitude, not really concerned at times by the collective effort. Obvious signs of annoyance at the end of a generally complicated evening.
Pochettino replaces him on the left, a choice criticized
A choice that provokes debate, and especially in the columns of the Parisian where we do not spare the coach of Pochettino. At a time when it is necessary to cajole Mbappé, at the end of the contract in a few months, and show him that he is a part, if not the part, the capital of the Parisian project, Pochettino is doing just the opposite.
“Parisian pundits have been explaining for months that Kylian Mbappé is at the heart of the project. The day Neymar disappeared because of an ankle in compote, the offensive line was thus recomposed: Di Maria on the left, Leo Messi in the center and Kylian Mbappé on the left side. Only one of the three played for him, Di Maria. (…) It is therefore El Fideo which is at the center of the project since it forces others to move and even Mbappé to play far from the goal, ”blurted out the Ile-de-France daily.
Kylian Mbappé had a difficult evening against Nice. With messages that matter sent by his own coach, Mauricio Pochettino. Indeed, the coach of PSG made strange choices which do not show great confidence in his striker.
