Kylian Mbappé has been named as Paris Saint-vice Germain’s captain. Christophe Galtier, the manager of the Ligue 1 champions, acknowledged this.
Galtier was commenting following PSG’s 7-0 Coupe de France victory over Pays de Cassel on Monday night.
Mbappe wore the captain’s armband and scored five goals as RC Lens thrashed the sixth-tier side at Stade Bollaert Delelis.
Galtier was effusive in his admiration for the French attacker following the encounter. PSG’s captain is Marquinhos.
“Kylian is a goal scorer. He is obsessed with scoring — clearly.
“He scored quite a few last year, 56 or something for the calendar year. It was important that he and Neymar played the whole game here,” Galtier said.
