From next season, Kylian Mbappé will further consolidate his power within PSG.
Last Monday, during the Cup match against US Pays de Cassel, Kylian Mbappé scored a quintuplet. And he did it with the armband around his arm. This responsibility was given to him in the absence of the usual captain Marquinhos.
It feels like the end of the reign for Marquinhos
According to RMC Sport journalist Fabrice Hawkins, the management of PSG is considering making this transfer of power final. From next season, and assuming of course he is still at the club, Mbappé would become the team’s first captain.
This decision, if it were to intervene would not be surprising, insofar as it is part of the direction of history. These last months, the crack of Bondy showed real capacities to federate and undeniable virtues of leader. He did it within his club, but also in selection. With the retirement of Hugo Lloris, he would also be one of the candidates to recover the end of the fabric around the arm.
The news should certainly not please “Marqui” too much. The Brazilian is the oldest element in the dressing room. And he thought he had demonstrated that he was up to this task since the departure of Thiago Silva. The former Roman may be paying the price for his lack of aggressiveness or a sporting season much less successful than the previous ones.
