Makelele warns Kylian Mbappe over request for more responsibility
Kylian Mbappe caused quite the stir at the French Football Awards ceremony when he declared that he needed more responsibility at Paris Saint-Germain, and Claude Makelele has cautioned the World Cup champ over this solicitation.
It was always going to be difficult for PSG to manage a dressing room with both Neymar and Mbappe within it, particularly since the French sensation has maybe even surpassed the Brazilian as far as significance to the club since the 2018 World Cup.
« If you want responsibility then Mbappe will have to accept what comes next, » Makelele clarified in a meeting with Le Parisien.
« I think it’s a good thing [for him to do].
« There’s not set age to take on these responsibilities. »
Paris Saint-Germain have endured yet another disappointing campaign in Europe, this time falling to Manchester United in spectacular fashion, yet the previous midfielder trusts that it’s really the fixation on mainland achievement that is undermining the club’s desire.
« PSG have to learn to be feared by others across Europe and then the victory will come, the priority is to be competitive. »
