Between coaches, they understand each other. At the microphone of RMC this Sunday morning, Pascal Dupraz considered that Luis Enrique's criticism of Kylian Mbappé was justified. “I find that there is finesse in Luis Enrique’s intervention. He is first and foremost an educator. He considers that Mbappé has progress to make. He doesn't say which ones. He will tell him,” commented the former coach of Evian TG, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.
“I'm not very happy with Kylian today,” said the Spanish PSG coach on Saturday after his team's 3-0 victory in Reims, and while the French international scored a hat-trick. “If we talk about goals, nothing to say. But I think he can help the team more. I'll talk to him about it first. But obviously he's one of the best players in the world. No doubt about it. But we need more from him, we want him to do more.”
According to Pascal Dupraz, these comments will not fail to provoke a reaction from the main person concerned, since “the players are very sensitive to what is said about them. They listen a lot to their coaches through what is said during press conferences. And the Haut-Savoyard concluded: “Yes, he scores, but he also has to defend. And it’s easier to send messages to a player who has just scored three goals.”
