His thoughts on PSG forward Kylian Mbappe were shared by former Arsenal and France national team member Emmanuel Petit.
“I have the feeling that he is unsure about himself, aside from physical and probably psychological issues. He has a step back to take to come to his senses. But all the players do,” Petit told RMC Sport.
“To me, his body language does not seem optimistic. I get the impression that ‘Neymarised’ is him. Even though he does not have Neymar’s qualities at all, Mbappe wants to do what Neymar does on the pitch.
I also get the feeling that his key quality – pace – has been examined by opponents. This guy’s key strength is playing randomly and not taking the initiative.”
