The day after PSG’s defeat against Dortmund (0-1, 0-2 overall) and its elimination in the semi-finals of the Champions League, Eric Di Meco returned to the Super Moscato Show on Kylian’s missed match Mbappé. By pointing the finger at its management by the club.

He admitted it himself: Kylian Mbappé was not at the level that could be expected of him in this Champions League semi-final. Mute against Dortmund in the first leg (1-0 defeat), the Parisian striker also missed out on his match during the return to the Parc des Princes on Tuesday evening (again 1-0 defeat).

But for Eric Di Meco, it is more PSG than the player that should be pointed at. In the Super Moscato Showthis Wednesday on RMC, the former Marseille defender returned to the management of Mbappé by his managers and his trainer Luis Enrique since last summer.

“The management of this boy this year by PSG is catastrophic”

“You know what I think of this boy for a long time, especially since the winter break,” said Di Meco. “I find that the management of this boy this year by PSG is catastrophic. Despite the contractual situation and everything that results from it, there was a way to get 100% out of this boy over this last year, for the benefit of everyone .”

Except that Kylian Mbappé found himself sidelined from the Parisian group in the summer of 2023, before finally being reinstated. But not without consequences, for the consultant RMC Sport. “You think that when we do a month and a half of preparation at the start of the season, what is that for? You don’t understand that when you are PSG, that you play every three days all year round, the preparation is very important,” said Di Meco. “A kid who misses his preparation can’t have a great season. And a kid who has to play all the time, and you go out at halftime several times in a row, you kill him physically and mentally.”

Super Moscato Show on May 8 – 3 p.m./4 p.m.

And to conclude: “All Mbappé that he is, who has been made to pass for a robot, mentally, what the club did to him… It affects morale. When you tell me that he doesn’t want to to run, I tell myself that it doesn’t come from the sky.”
