Kylian Mbappe made a rather bold statement.
Mbappe was the best player in France for the 2022-23 season. Mbappe was named the best French player of the 2022-23 season by French publication L’Equipe and France Football.
It was a well-deserved honor. Mbappe had an incredible season in 2022-23. He led the league with 29 goals and six assists, and when you include cup competitions, he had a monster tally of 41 goals and 10 assists in 43 games.
After winning the award, Mbappe gave an interview. Naturally, many questions were asked about his future. Mbappe had recently stated that he would not be signing a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Mbappe has since been strongly linked to Real Madrid, and PSG have decided to sell him this summer.
In a way, he became the subject of a rumor mill. But Mbappe was unapologetic. Speaking about his future, he said: “Why do I think this is my last season in the French Ligue 1? It’s very simple. Because I want to compete and I want to win,” he said.
“No matter who I play with, what jersey I wear and where I am, I am never complacent. I’m always in a state of dissatisfaction. That’s why I’m never impressed with what I do. I tell myself that I can do better. I always want to win; I don’t want to aim to just play in the game. That’s why some people think I’m arrogant. I’m not afraid of failure. It’s part of the career. I was born to win, and I want to show that to everyone,” he added. 해외안전놀이터 추천
Mbappe, along with Elling Holland, has been touted as the next Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. He is also considered the number one favorite for the next Ballon d’Or. However, he has yet to reach the podium. In the 2023 Ballon d’Or power rankings, Mbappe is behind Holland and Messi.
Mbappe is not the favorite to win the Ballon d’Or. Mbappe believes that being at PSG has had an impact: “I don’t think playing for PSG helps much. They are a divisive team,” he said in a somewhat controversial statement.
Mbappe was unperturbed: “Of course, it can cause gossip. But I don’t care because I know the meaning of my actions,” he said.
