Kylian Mbappé was crowned top scorer in Ligue 1 for the fifth season in a row, a performance only achieved before by Jean-Pierre Papin, on Saturday at the end of the last day.
With 29 goals, the last scored on Saturday against Clermont (2-3), the French striker from Paris SG is ahead of Lyonnais Alexandre Lacazette (27 goals) after 38 days. Papin had achieved the feat of being crowned five times in a row between 1988 and 1992 with Olympique de Marseille.
The Parisian striker had scored 28 goals in 2021-22, 27 in 2020-21, 18 during the 2019-20 season truncated by the Covid-19 and 33 in 2018-19, his most prolific season in L1. "It's for history," slipped the striker on Canal after the meeting on Saturday.
Under contract next season, the PSG N.7 could become the only player to have won this distinction six times in a row. In any case, he has already planned for the next exercise: "I'm just here to play, I have a contract. The club is doing what it can, I'll just be happy with what the club is doing. The rest is none of my business, ”launched the striker.
Mbappé has already broken the record for the number of best player of the season trophies gleaned consecutively, with his fourth, obtained on Sunday during the UNFP Trophies ceremony.
“It's a pleasure, I always wanted to win, to leave my name in the history of the championship. But even with all the ambition I have, I didn't expect to win so quickly,” he said that evening.
His teammate Lionel Messi, for his part, was crowned the best passer in the Championship, with 16 assists.
