PSG unhappy with substitution, local media ‘packs up’

Paris Saint-Germain’s (PSG) Kylian Mbappe (25) substitution was justified, according to some.

Mbappe started and played 64 minutes in the 27th round of the 2023-2024 French Ligue 1 away match against Marseille at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, France, on Monday (Jan. 1). He finished the match before being substituted by Hamus. The team went on to win 2-0 despite being ‘outnumbered’.

Mbappe made headlines that day for his frowny face when he was substituted.

Mbappe is expected to leave PSG at the end of the season and join Spanish Primera Liga giants Real Madrid.

So, whenever Mbappe is substituted for a non-injury reason, foreign media are always on the lookout for his reaction.

This was no different. “Mbappe frowned when he saw his number on the substitutes’ board,” the Daily Mail reported.

“PSG coach Luis Enrique has made a habit of substituting Mbappe during games,” the publication continued. Mbappe is not happy about it at all.” Previously, 카지노사이트 Enrique had made it clear that he wanted Mbappe to stay, but that he would have to get used to being without him.

After the Marseille game, Enrique was asked why he substituted Mbappe.

“I always try to find the best solution for the team. “It doesn’t matter (if people don’t understand my decisions). It’s the coach who makes the decision,” he insisted.

According to PSG news outlet PSG Post, Mbappe headed straight to the locker room after being substituted, rather than to the bench. Usually, players who are subbed out sit on the bench and watch the rest of the game.

“Mbappe’s reaction to being substituted will undoubtedly be a topic of debate over the next few days,” PSG Post commented.

However, a day later (day 2), PSG Post claimed that “Mbappe had a performance that deserved to be substituted”.

“For 64 minutes, Mbappe failed to threaten Marseille’s defense. With a 70% passing success rate, Mbappe was the most ineffective PSG player.” 메이저사이트 “He completed 14 passes out of 20 attempts and had zero shots on goal. Mbappe was also touched 31 times and lost the ball 12 times. This is PSG’s worst ball-touching record after Kolo Moani (16 ball touches).”

Finally, the ‘PSG Post’ threw a counting punch: “He was not as noticeable on the pitch as his post-match reaction.”

The win keeps PSG at the top of the league with 18 wins, 8 draws, and 1 loss, and 62 points. Marseille is seventh with 10 wins, nine draws, and eight losses and 39 points.
