Papin : “Even if Neymar is galactic, the real star of the PSG, it is Mbappé”
Yesterday evening, in addition to his hat-trick in the victory against AS Monaco (3-1), Kylian Mbappé became the youngest player to reach the bar 30 goals in Ligue 1. The last French player to have reached that number goal was Jean-Pierre Papin in 1990 with the Olympic of Marseille.
In an interview granted to the Parisian, JPP – now consultant on beIN SPORTS – has shown a panegyric to the champion of the world 2018. “30 goals is a lot, especially for a kid of 20 years. The difference with me is that I’ve done it once, he will do it several times (…) It has increased in everything. When, at 19 years of age, you win the world Cup, you score goals in the champions League and each time that you play in Blues, you reach 30 goals in League 1… You do it quickly the trick of the question. He is able to score all the time. There is nothing to say about the quality of Kylian.”
According to the former French international, Mbappé is a better asset than Neymar in the animation offensive PSG. “The real weapon of the PSG, this is not Neymar, it’s him. You could have guessed. Even if Neymar is galactic, the real star of the PSG, it is Mbappé. For the past two years, Neymar carries out bursts sometimes fabulous, but Mbappé is there all the time.”
According to Jean-Pierre Papin, the attacker in paris is a true number 9. “I’ve never understood why we did play on a side. Because it goes very quickly and because of the differences, no doubt. But he loves so much depth… And in this registry, it is never as dangerous as in the axis. It is capable of from the right, to the left, it has no fixed position, but each time, it is the same lemonade : a feint, an acceleration, and farewell !”
