Sorry obtained?

Then, the media explained that it was waiting to see how the Parisian supporters present at the Parc des Princes would welcome their player, wondering “ if he has obtained the forgiveness of the fans or if, on the contrary, he must submit to even more penance “. A way of recalling that some PSG supporters have expressed their weariness of the multiple episodes linked to the recent management of Kylian Mbappé by his coach and the player’s reactions, not always well received, as when he went to sit in the stands to follow the second period of the match against Monaco.
