LIGUE 1 - PSG: Pochettino looks back on Kylian Mbappé's initial desires
Kylian Mbappé has confirmed it: he asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The Frenchman said he did not want to extend, "I wanted the club to have a transfer fee to have a quality replacement," he told L’Équipe.
Even so, he accepted the decision of his leaders not to let him go: "I wanted everyone to come out grown up, that we go out hand in hand, that we make a good deal, and me I respected that. I said, if you don't want me to go, I will stay. "
Mauricio Pochettino returned to this episode on Movistar's show Universo Valdano. The PSG coach “has always seen the club as a business. The idea was that he stays with us and I saw Mbappé as calm. He is a great professional, and he respected his contractual situation. Kylian is a smart, young but mature boy. As a footballer, he is extraordinary. He's a world champion. He is the present and the future,”AS reports.
