Kylian Mbappé returned last weekend to the Paris Saint-Germain, starting eleven against Montpellier Hérault SC, where the 23-year-old scored his first goal of the season.
However, the match was overshadowed by the “penalty gate,” but ahead of the game against Lille OSC on Saturday at the Stade Pierre Mauroy; manager Christophe Galtier discussed integrating Mbappé to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
“It was a trio last season,” Galtier told reporters. “There, we saw [Lionel Messi and Neymar] because there was Mbappé’s absence. He was suspended and had muscle discomfort.
“This trio was effective last season. They are constantly looking for each other in training, in the game. It’s a real trio. And yes, it’s easy to integrate Kylian Mbappé.”
Nonetheless, many will be paying attention to the communication that Mbappé and Neymar have out on the pitch after last weekend set off a firestorm of various reports regarding their relationship.
