With Hugo Lloris and Raphaël Varane set to retire from international football after the 2022 World Cup, Didier Deschamps had to appoint a new captain. And the coach finally decided to entrust the armband to Kylian Mbappé at the expense of Antoine Griezmann. It’s a decision that continues to provoke chatter.

Speaking on RMC, Jérôme Rothen denounced the decision as political. The armband he gave to Kylian Mbappé is a political armband.e are not good compared to what Antoine Griezmann was used to doing at Atlético de Madrid. Then he came back (…) and it was complicated the first year, recalled Rothen.

He added: Since the World Cup (…), I’ve seen Antoine Grizemann higher up the pitch, decisive, scoring goals, but what can I say? I’d just like to say well done to him for getting back on track after some complicated years. Today, he’s back to being one of the top 10 players in the world. And is that a bad thing to say today, compared to before when I was a player?
