Kylian Mbappé is playing his first home game of the 2023-24 season after the entire drama this summer.
The 24-year-old opted not to trigger the option to extend his contract until 2025, so the question was how would the supporters receive him. Before the match against RC Lens, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner received applause when his name was announced in the starting 11.
Furthermore, Mbappé and Ousmane Dembélé received applause and cheers during pregame. They will now look to give supporters more reason to cheer with the performances on the pitch. The two Frenchman will lead PSG’s attack this season.
Applause and cheers when Kylian Mbappé’s and Dembélé’s name was announced in the starting lineup today! 🇫🇷🎥
