Author of successful services since the start of Euro 2020, Kylian Mbappé was quickly made to the return of Karim Benzema on the front of the tricolor attack. An offensive development, a certain defensive involvement but the Parisian striker has still not managed to score in the competition. A lack of efficiency sharply criticized by Jérôme Rothen. On the antennas of RMC, the former Blues player, now a consultant, did not hesitate to castigate the overall performance of the native of Bondy. “Everyone thinks Mbappé is one of the best players in Europe. But if you put him right away in the very big category, you can’t be satisfied with a deviation from Benzema and a physically won duel which gives Griezmann the equalizer against Hungary. “ A scathing exit before directly attacking the attitude of the young world champion.
“Whether he is the leader in the field, no worries. […] That it goes beyond the framework of the field, it bothers me. I think Didier Deschamps can no longer manage that and it is problematic. It’s even surprising that he lets Kylian Mbappé do so many things and disperse. You can see it in the field performances. Today, we can not say that Kylian Mbappé succeeds his Euro. “ Finally highlighting “The oversized ego” of the French striker, Jérôme Rothen concluded on seeing the Parisian number 7 grant himself some free kicks and corners: “Is he aware that he doesn’t have the class of some of the group on set pieces?” […] Maybe he puts it to training. But I watch all of Mbappé’s matches. Do you remember a magnificent free kick in the 25 meters? On the other hand, I remember Griezmann, Pogba… It’s already been two, a left-handed and a right-handed. So what is he doing here? “ Shattering.
🗣💬 “Does Mbappé make a good Euro? No. We expect a lot better from him. And what the hell is he doing with direct free kicks?”
