Mbappé’s scathing reply!

The criticism of PSG’s use of Kylian Mbappé will continue over the holidays. The French prodigy has yet to convince in this precise role of center-forward, which he resumed on Wednesday evening against FC Metz at the Parc des Princes, but it was still he who won his team’s last match of the year (3-1). The Parisians are now five points clear of runners-up Nice at the end of the first leg of Ligue 1.

Luis Enrique’s men struggled against the Moselle outfit in the first half, with Randal Kolo Muani a subdued right-winger in place of Ousmane Dembélé. The Catalan coach had maintained his 3-2 formation.Alexandre Oukidja’s superb 25-metre drive under the bar (60th). And after Matthieu Udol had reduced the deficit from a corner, Mbappé pounced on a back-pass to make it 3-1 (83rd). He is the first player to score 18 goals in 17 French D1 matches since record-holder Josip Skoblar in 1970-1971.
