LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of Paris Saint-Germain, has expressed his admiration for star forward Kylian Mbappe while emphasizing the club’s newfound unity.
PSG faced a tumultuous summer, marked by Mbappe’s decision not to extend his contract, triggering numerous transfer rumors.
Furthermore, Lionel Messi and Neymar departed for teams in MLS and Saudi Arabia. Despite these challenges, Al-Khelaifi believes that the team is in a better position than the previous season.
“Kylian Mbappe is an exceptional player and an outstanding individual,” Al-Khelaifi told Record.
“Both on and off the pitch, the Paris Saint-Germain team has never been more united, as was evident during last weekend’s match against Lyon.”
In this new cycle for Paris Saint-Germain, the focus has shifted from results to performance and playing style, according to Al-Khelaifi.
He believes that by prioritizing these aspects, the desired results will follow. Al-Khelaifi expressed satisfaction with the team’s fantastic coach and sporting director, highlighting the positive spirit within PSG.
These comments come in the wake of Neymar’s recent statement about experiencing a challenging time in Paris, despite playing alongside Messi and Mbappe.
The club faced disappointment last season despite its star-studded attack, leading to a strained relationship between the South American duo and the club’s fans.
Kylian Mbappe and his teammates are set to return to action on September 15 when they face Nice in a Ligue 1 match.
