Mbappé continues the punchlines, he enjoys


Against the Netherlands this Friday evening, Kylian Mbappé wears the captain’s armband of the Blues for the first time in selection. Daniel Riolo spoke about the choice that Didier Deschamps had to make concerning the captaincy of the Blues. And he sees with a good eye the fact of empowering the PSG star a little more.

Is the Stade de France that Blues start this Friday evening their very first post-World Cup match. The reception of The Netherlands marks a turning point for the French team of Deschamps, since Hugo Lloris, record holder in number of selections and number of captaincies, is not present. Having retired from international duty in January, the goalkeeper Tottenham is replaced as captain by Kylian Mbappechosen earlier this week by Didier Deschamps to perform this role.

“He is extraordinary”

In L’After Foot, Daniel Riolo reconsidered the choice of Didier Deschamps to name Kylian Mbappe captain of the team France : “Mbappé is a good choice. I am very happy. Yes there may be some jokes. But what it does, it does well. He is extraordinary. He is above average. He’s smarter, stronger.” said the consultant on the airwaves of RMC Sports. Indeed, the statements of Kylian Mbappe are often subject to debate, in particular thanks to his quality as a speaker and his statements without jargon. Number 10 of Blues even had fun talking about the management of image rights in the selection a few months ago, with a now cult passage: “ We talked about months of sports, hours of rights and minutes of money. To talk about these sponsorship managements… football has changed”.

“I have no jealousy”

Whether Daniel Riolo often criticized Kylian Mbappe for his outings with the PSG in particular, the consultant is now making his mea culpa about the place that the attacker has taken over the years: “It doesn’t bother me. I have no jealousy. The era of communication is over, it’s over. The guy is sincere, let him talk” dropped Riolo before adding: “The choice of Mbappé was political, so Deschamps will assume until the end”.
