Kylian Mbappe has been warned that he may have to “accept” scoring fewer goals for Paris Saint-Germain this season. Now that Lionel Messi has joined their ranks, PSG’s goal scoring will obviously see finer distribution at Parc des Princes. And Pauleta has predicted that, among other football news, Mbappe will need to accustom his ego to being Messi’s teammate.
Paris Saint-Germain already had World Cup-winning France international Kylian Mbappe and Brazilian superstar Neymar on their books before this summer.
But now, the Ligue 1 giants have added another world-class forward to their attacking talent pool this summer. Lionel Messi joined PSG on a shocking football transfer from PSG this summer.
Mbappe Will Need to Accustom His Ego to Being Messi’s Teammate
Six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi is looking to further enhance his reputation after leaving Barcelona for France’s Paris Saint-Germain.
The 34-year-old may be as popular in his new surroundings as at Camp Nou, stealing some spotlight from his teammates.
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe made for football transfer news with a wish to move to Real Madrid immediately after Messi’s arrival.
He may, it seems to us, thus not take kindly to Messi infringing on the attacking prowess at the club.
However, PSG legend Pauleta, who hit 109 goals for the club in his playing days, has a message for Mbappe.
He has advised Mbappe about seeing Messi playing alongside him on Ligue 1’s official website: “He will have to adapt.”
“But he will grow a lot with Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain,” Pauleta added, however.
“If he has the intelligence to move well, taking advantage of the spaces created by Messi and Neymar, he will often find himself in a good situation thanks to their quality of passing and he will therefore be able to score many goals.
“The fact that he can play either on the side or in the middle will be an asset. That said, there is always a risk that one of the three will score less. If that’s the case for Kylian, he’ll have to accept it.”
