While he still seems on the start, Kylian Mbappé again reminded Saturday night in Lens (1-1) how essential he was to Paris Saint-Germain.
The strong man of Paris Saint Germain, it’s him. If anyone ever doubted it, Kylian Mbappé recalled Saturday evening that it was essential to his team, making a decisive comeback in Lens (1-1).

Mbappé nevertheless remained on two mixed matches, in Saint-Etienne (1-3) and against Nice (0-0), where he had missed many opportunities. Mauricio Pochettino had seen “A little tired” at his player’s home, and had decided to leave him on the bench at kick-off at Bollaert. Logically, as PSG were behind, Mbappé entered in the 70th minute, to breathe new life into his team.
It’s terrible to think that despite the millions injected, the stars stacked, the only project of PSG is to spin the ball to Mbappé and wait for something to happen!
