We are still waiting for Kylian Mbappé's farewell message to Neymar. For Marco Verratti, it happened a few minutes after his departure for Qatar and the Al-Arabi club was made official. “An exceptional player and person. Having had the privilege of being by your side all these years will have been an immense pleasure,” insists the Parisian striker on Instagram, affirming that the passage of the 30-year-old Italian “will never be forgotten or neglected”. Verratti is also “one of the best players” that Mbappé has “been able to see”. And to conclude: “Thank you my friend, I will miss you very much.”
The most successful player in the history of PSG (30 trophies) and second most capped (416 matches), Marco Verratti spent 11 years on the banks of the Seine. Kylian Mbappé played 181 matches alongside him, a little less than with Marquinhos (205) and Presnel Kimpembe (184).
