Kylian Mbappé, the real reason for his absence against Metz revealed

Like other stars of the squad, Kylian Mbappé was left out of the group for PSG’s trip to Metz on Sunday evening. Which will therefore deprive him of his farewell to Ligue 1.

Did Luis Enrique want to play one last dirty trick on Kylian Mbappé by depriving him of his farewell to Ligue 1? The question arose on Sunday morning, upon discovery of the group selected for the PSG trip to Metz, as part of the 34e and last day. Absent four days earlier against Nice, due to discomfort in his left hamstring, the French striker was this time expected to start at Saint-Symphorien. But he was not summoned.

A sanction ? A disagreement ? A refusal from the player? Nothing of the sort. According to RMC Sport, the Spanish technician actually granted three days of rest to certain executives of his team, which explains why the captain of the Blues is not the only Parisian star sidelined. Thus Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marquinhos, Vitinha, Fabian Ruiz and Ousmane Dembélé will also not be traveling to Moselle this weekend, to close the championship.

191 goals in 246 Ligue 1 matches

Everyone is expected to resume training on Tuesday at the PSG Campus, in order to prepare for the final of the Coupe de France which will pit the Rouge et Bleu against Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday in Lille. For Kylian Mbappé, who will undoubtedly join Real Madrid in the coming days, the counters in Ligue 1 are therefore stopped. Since his debut in Monaco in December 2015, at not even 17 years old, he has scored 191 goals and 74 assists in 246 matches.

Recently voted best elite player for the fifth time, the former Bondy prodigy will have shone especially in the jersey of Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he will have scored 175 goals in seven seasons. A record for the capital club. Here he is preparing to leave France with seven championship titles in his pocket (2017 with ASM, then 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022, 2023 and 2024 with PSG) and a whole bunch of records which make him a true legend of Ligue 1.
