Teammate falls completely out of the blue after promotion of Kylian Mbappé at PSG

Presnel Kimpembe is (a little) angry. The Frenchman is no longer second captain at PSG, in favor of Kylian Mbappé.

In the cup match against Pays de Cassel (0-7), the attacker wore the captain’s armband. That is normally reserved for Marquinhos, but the Brazilian was absent. Mbappé then scored five times, after which trainer Christoph Galtier announced that he had promoted his superstar to vice-captain.

Kimpembe apparently didn’t know what he was hearing. Until recently, he was number two in the pecking order. The Frenchman wanted to do his side of the story via Instagram.

“I’ve heard and read a lot in the last few hours about things that concern me,” said the defender, who missed the World Cup due to injury and has only played 11 times this season. “So I think it is necessary to create clarity so that the spread of misinformation stops. I was not informed of the decision, so that is completely wrong. But I always respect the decisions of the club.”
