Former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, Thierry Henry, has leapt to the defence of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe’s behaviour during the Parisians’ 5-2 French Ligue 1 win over Montpellier over the weekend.
Henry said Mbappe has nothing to prove to anyone with his performances in the aftermath of an on-pitch sulk.
He also sent a message to PSG manager, Christophe Galtier, urging him to find a way on how he can play Mbappe alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar in his squad.
Mbappe scored against Montpellier but also had a penalty saved against the visitors, before shocking viewers as he appeared to stop running after not receiving a pass from Vitinha in a promising breakaway.
“It’s his place. He will of course, have to show it [his best level] as he has shown from the start. But he has nothing to prove to anyone,” Henry told Amazon Prime Video.
“The coach will have to find a way to play the three [Messi, Neymar, Mbappe] and make them happy…good luck.
“At PSG, there is always a debate, a problem. They won 5-2 and we are talking about Mbappe. Last year, it was Neymar and it will always be like that, it’s PSG.”
