Roller coasters. Between Kylian Mbappé and the Blues, the love story known ups and downs. Quickly, the crack of Bondy was able to conquer the heart of France, he who was invaluable in the conquest of the title in 2018. A first tournament where he had shone with 4 goals in the final phase of the World Cup. The player notably stole the show from Lionel Messi by scoring twice in the France-Argentina match (4-3) in Kazan. He also scored a goal in the final against Croatia on July 15 at the Luzhniki stadium in Moscow (4-2 victory).

A player who annoyed the locker rooms of PSG and the Blues

On the roof of the world, KM7, 18 years old at that time, had put the whole football planet at his feet. The best clubs in the world, in particular Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, ​​were to dislodge AS Monaco. But it was ultimately Paris Saint-Germain who got their hands on this talented footballer. In the capital, he went from young star in the shadow of Neymar to the star of the team around which the project is built. At the end of the contract, he obtained full powers to stay in Paris. But it was not without consequences. His relationship with Ney took a hit.

Critics were also more numerous, especially on the side of Spain where we did not really digest the blow he made to Florentino Pérez and Real Madrid. In selection, Kylian Mbappé also experienced some turmoil, he who quickly had the status and responsibilities he claimed. And there too, it was not without consequences. During Euro 2020, organized in 2021 following the covid-19 epidemic, he was not unanimous in the locker room. Some executives did not appreciate his attitude and did not like the quarrel he had with Olivier Giroud, dismissed for a time from the selection thereafter.

Mbappé thought of stopping everything

Solid on his support, Mbappé had a bad experience of this tournament. He did not feel supported by the FFF, he who had been the target of racist insults following his missed penalty against Switzerland. So much so that he had decided not to play for the Blues, as Noël Le Graët had admitted. Asked by Sport Illustratedthe player had more or less confirmed. “Yes finally I explained to him above all well that it was in relation to racism and NO to the penalty. But he considered that there had been no racism…”

He then added: “I said, ‘I can’t play for people who think I’m a monkey. I’m not going to play. But afterwards, I took the time to reflect with all the people who play with me and encourage me. And I think it’s not a good message to give up. Because I think I am an example for many people. I did not let go of the national team because it is a message to the younger generation to say: ‘We are stronger than that'”. Ready to give everything for the Blues, KM7, who has invested in the issue of the image rights of the Habs by going to the showdown with the FFF, wants to start on a good basis. And it is not the Pogba affair, where his name has been cited, which will make him change course.

The striker has a lot to prove in Qatar

In Qatar, Mbappé is more expected than ever. He was already before Karim Benzema’s injury. It is even more so today. But that pleases the French, who wants responsibilities. But he will have a lot to prove, he who keeps in mind that this World Cup will be very important in the race for the Ballon d’Or he covets. He will have the opportunity to show that he is the best player in the world in a competition bringing together the world’s elite and where we will be waiting for his teammates in clubs Neymar (Brazil), Lionel Messi (Argentina) and others like CR7 (Portugal) , Lewandowski (Poland) or Harry Kane (England).

Like 4 years ago in Russia, KM7 wants everyone to agree, show that it has passed a milestone and sit down at the table of the greatest. Within the French team, he will have a lot to do, especially since some executives are missing (Benzema, Pogba, Kanté) and others are less in spirit (Griezmann, Varane). He who claims responsibilities will be served. Also in the game, Didier Deschamps will have to straighten out with Benzema’s package. It is Giroud who should be evaluated at the forefront in the 4-3-3 expected against Australia. Mbappé would be on the left.

Make Karim Benzema forget

But he would bring his speed, his percussion, his ability to take depth and his finishing and would have more freedom alongside a Giroud, who could be at his service and with whom relations are much better. In good shape, Mbappé, who is quite capable of evolving in a system with two attackers, is also doing good training sessions behind closed doors according to The Team. The sports daily also ensures that a member of the selection was appointed following Kylian Mbappé’s package: “now on a team of soldiers around Kylian”. A general Mbappé who has revenge to take after his Euro 2020 where he had not scored the slightest but in 4 games (15 shots attempted) while KB9 had scored 4.

In Qatar, the Frenchman, who must make people forget the Ballon d’Or 2022, therefore wants to get out of his desert and find the way to the nets, he who had been clumsy and who had missed out on the Euro. But he can count on the support of his coach, who expects him to rise to the occasion and score goals. “He is still young. These four years have allowed him to progress even further. He has no more internal responsibilities. Kylian is part of a collective and he needs it. Its captain, Hugo Lloris, agrees. “He confirmed all the hopes placed in him in recent years. It is difficult to define limits. I feel concerned, relaxed. He will be keen to perform and help the team.” On a mission of redemption during this World Cup, Kylian Mbappé has the opportunity to make history with a second consecutive world title. A challenge accepted by KM7.
