PSG – Neymar shines, Kylian Mbappé grumbles: “He’s a competitor, he wants to be good quickly” according to Galtier

PSG - Neymar shines, Kylian Mbappé grumbles:

He will not be Ballon d’Or in 2022. But in his feet, the ball is golden, when he is thus fulfilled. Neymar shines within Paris Saint Germain at the start of the season. Saturday against Montpellier, the Brazilian star was still the brightest star of the reigning French champion. Two goals scored, and, above all, an impression of radiant ease, which the Parisian supporters hope will last and be decisive in the conquest of Europe.
Lionel Messi is not far from being as well launched, in this financial year 2022-2023. During the 2nd day of Ligue 1, he even thought to offer his friend the hat-trick, with a delicious decisive pass in the last ten minutes of this meeting won 5-2 by PSG. But Neymar’s third goal was disallowed for Presnel Kimpembe’s offside. Still, the Argentinian-Brazilian complicity was obvious, and delighted the Parc des Princes.

Neymar is very happy, supported Marco Verratti, in remarks reported by The Team. With the players we have, when we see them happy, they pass it on to everyone: teammates, the public (…) We need these players as much as possible.‘Ney’ feels gorgeous and I’m sure it will continue to do so. ” Five years to the day, after his debut in L1, the Brazilian has contributed to the “great atmosphere” which Christophe Galtier hailed.

Penalty missed by Mbappé, succeeded by Neymar

During that time, Kylian Mbappé certainly scored, but above all he showed a different face. The French international was starting his season, after missing the Champions Trophy on suspension, and the first round of L1 due to groin pain. He did it without a smile of satisfaction. A contrast all the more marked as Neymar matched his flashes of playful celebrations, including a Steph Curry style.

What also differentiated the evenings of Mbappé and Neymar can be summed up in one word: penalty. The first missed his (butting on an inspired Jonas Omlin), the second converted it. In a press conference, the Parisian coach spoke of a “instruction respected“, according to RTL. “If there had been a third, I would have left it to Leo (Messi)”, meanwhile chuckled Presnel Kimpembe at the microphone of Canal Plus, evoking the possibility of shooting, on the day of his 27th birthday.

Everyone must understand that it will be necessary to arrange and manage each other’s playing times

Not enough to make Kylian Mbappé laugh, who assumes his desire to be a monster of his sport, statistically included. At the end of the first act, a pass that Vitinha did not send to him annoyed him. He made it known, ostentatiously, not participating in the aftermath of the action. Asked about it on Canal PlusGaltier replied: “I see this action (…) He’s a competitor, he wants to be good, he wants to be good fast.”

The technician newly at the head of PSG has not (totally) eluded the question. Yes, Mbappé was frustrated. But it is a sign of motivation above all, according to him, and the witness of his delay in preparation: “Kylian had played 45, 60 and 30 minutes in the preparation. His last match was 3 weeks ago. It’s a bit normal that he is a bit short physically, compared to his partners.” Galtier therefore minimizes the latent concern that this represents.

Have some problems with this profile of competitor and great player“don’t scare him.”It’s difficult when you have problems with players who don’t have that level“, he specifies. Before concluding, all the same: “Everyone must understand that it will be necessary to arrange and manage each other’s playing times” Everyone sent their messages, this Saturday at the Park. The main, collective, remains that PSG, leader of L1, is already well established.
