“He stayed and deserved the armband”
At the post-match press conference, Christophe Galtier justified this decision to offer the status of vice-captain of the PSG at Kylian Mbappe : “ The captain’s armband has been defined like this since the start of the season. I had decided that Kylian should be the second captain, he stayed at Paris Saint-Germain and he deserved to have this armband when Marquinhos is not there “, noted Galtier.
A strong choice
In other words, by deciding to postpone at the last minute the real Madrid to extend until 2025 with the PSG, Kylian Mbappe has therefore made sure to take on more responsibilities within the capital club this season.
