Luis Enrique didn’t mince his words about Kylian Mbappé: the player is effective in front of the goal but less so in the collective aspect. However, according to L’Equipe, the striker doesn’t take it as badly as one might think.
This Saturday evening, after Reims-PSG, Luis Enrique surprised everyone by saying this about Kylian Mbappé. “I’m not very happy with Kylian today. I think on the goals, I have nothing to say, but he can be better in several aspects. I have to watch the match again. I’m not very happy with Kylian today. On the goals, there is nothing to say. But he can be better. I will analyze his match, and I will tell him privately. He is one of the best players in the world, but we need more. We want him to do more things! That’s just my opinion.”

Does this annoy the PSG striker? According to L’Equipe… not at all. Kylian Mbappé was not upset or surprised by his coach’s comments. Mbappé understands that the coach is demanding, especially to push him to go further. Mbappé is well aware that he can do better. According to L’Equipe, this requested rigor is therefore well received by the player.
Relations between Mbappé and Enrique are reportedly good. The striker appreciates the tactical scheme, and there is no tension between the two men. It seems that they are pushing for excellence, which is what Mbappé was demanding last season.
