By: Manu Tournoux

Target of numerous criticisms in recent days, Kylian Mbappé provided a capital response against Metz thanks to his double.

This time, Kylian Mbappé was smiling at the final whistle. Appearing particularly annoyed after the trip to Dortmund despite qualifying for the round of 16 of the Champions League, but also in Lille, Sunday, the French world champion beamed with happiness after the victory against Metz (3-1) . A happiness due in large part to the first steps of his little brother Ethan with PSG.

The former Monegasque, who celebrated his 25the anniversary this Wednesday, nevertheless had another good reason to be satisfied with his match: his two goals scored in the second half. A double embellished with a masterpiece thanks to his magnificent shot sent into the top corner from the entrance to the area. Enough to silence the critics who have been heard since his failed performance against Lille.

Luis Enrique did not miss the opportunity to say all the good things he thought of his star striker, whose positioning has been at the heart of the debates for several weeks. “ As always, I have a great relationship with all the players and with Kylian too. He’s a 25-year-old player, but he’s very mature, he’s always smiling. It’s football, we’re always talking about something, there’s always information. That’s what sells. But my relationship with Kylian and with the other players is very good. He would score 50 goals per season with all the coaches in the world,” he told Canal+ at the end of the meeting, refusing to choose between qualification for the quarter-finals of the Champions League and an extension of Kylian Mbappé when making a wish for 2024: “I choose both. »

According to the Spanish technician, the rumors about his relationship with the Bondynois or the latter’s future have little influence on him. “I don’t care what people say or what the critics say. What I’ve learned from coaching big clubs over the last few years, which Paris Saint-Germain is, is that anything can happen. People can come with new stories. It could last a month, two months. I’ve gotten used to living with it and I don’t let it affect me. It’s what’s best for my team. Rumors will always circulate, coaches will always be criticized for results. There will always be rumors”
