“Kylian (Mbappe) has a great World Cup,” the Paris Saint-Germain captain said after a friendly against Quevilly-Rouen on December 21. “He sends a strong signal to all, that a player who was clearly frustrated at not being able to lift the trophy, even if he was top scorer, was quick to return to training with the team.” .
Mbappe surprised many people when he returned to the training ground less than 72 hours after the end of the 2022 World Cup final. On December 21, Mbappe appeared at the Camp des Loges training center. The striker born in 1998 decided to return to training with PSG and did not want to have more days off after the 2022 World Cup.
“We are very happy for that,” Galtier said of Mbappe’s decision to return to PSG. “He wants to return to training as soon as possible, joining his teammates to prepare for the upcoming match.”
Achraf Hakimi, Mbappe’s close friend at PSG, also shortened his vacation to return to training with the Parisian team. Normally, the players playing in the 2022 World Cup final are given extra rest by the host club after the tournament ends.
Lionel Messi is likely to return to PSG only at the beginning of the new year 2023. Neymar, who was eliminated in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup, has not returned to training with PSG. Mbappe even just celebrated his 24th birthday on December 20.
With Mbappe returning to the training ground, it is not excluded that he can play in the round of 16 of Ligue 1, when PSG confronts Strasbourg at dawn on December 29 (Hanoi time).
