FIFA World Cup 2022 – Qatar Final Assessment
Since renewing his contract with PSG, Mbappé has gained exclusive “powers” at the French club. Last season, in addition to Messi, Paris Saint-Germain had other Argentines in the squad such as Di María, Mauro Icardi and Leandro Paredes. Mbappé called for the dismissal of Argentine coach Maurício Pochettino and asked the president of the French club to dismantle the group of Argentine players within the squad. The idea of removing the Argentines would be to establish a “new order” in the team's locker room, which with more French players would make it easier to lead.
Neymar, who is very close to the Argentines, was even considered outside the French club in the transfer window of the European market, causing several frictions. Mbappé's behavior within Paris Saint-Germain is also caused by his mother and manager, Fayza Lamari, who charges her son with an imposing posture.
Whether Mbappé at the "command" of the French team will be a success will still depend on the results of the next European seasons, but a cut in time and the final between Argentina and France puts Mbappé in front of some former teammates that he asked to leave PSG. Match numbers in the eyes of the AI will be next. The photo below shows the moment they posed together for the highlights in yesterday's match.
Apparently the final wrote an interesting chapter in the history and lessons of sport and life.
