Mbappe makes his mark:
PSG beat Lyon (2-1). It could count on Mauro Icardi’s winning goal to win at home. The Argentine striker received a perfect cross from Kylian Mbappé to provide the three points. The 22-year-old French international stood out once again despite his lackluster performance. He set a record regarding his involvement in goal in Ligue 1.
Mbappé involved in 150 goals in Ligue 1
Since his debut in Ligue 1 with Monaco, Kylian Mbappé has scored numerous goals and delivered a plurality of assists. Currently, the player is involved in 150 goals in the league. In 154 games played, Mbappé has scored 111 goals and 39 assists. At only 22 years old, he is likely to increase his record even further.
Thierry Henry is Back!
A year and a half after leaving the AS Monaco bench, Thierry Henry is once again part of the Ligue 1 landscape. The 44-year-old coach has agreed to become a consultant for Amazon Prime Video during the evenings of Ligue 1. A role in which he is flourishing since the beginning of the season, as he confided in an interview with Le Parisien.
“It’s only pleasure,” said the former striker of the Blues. We are put in very good conditions. I am lucky to be with good guys. We form a good team and it also allows me to reconnect with the French public and L1. Everywhere, in the stadiums, we receive a really nice welcome. There are beautiful atmospheres, beautiful lawns, and even if we can’t play anymore, of course, we find good sensations”.
“I am quietly waiting for the projects that will be proposed to me”
The fact of rubbing shoulders with the French stadiums again brings back old memories in the former striker trained at AS Monaco. This role as a consultant for Amazon allows me to retrace my steps and relive certain emotions,” says the 1998 World Cup winner. When I arrive in a stadium, I walk in the corridors, I go on the lawn. And the emotions come back… I came back to Monaco, where everything started for me, where I scored my first goals in L1. It’s obviously something. On Saturday, I saw Bollaert again, I remembered that it was there that I was selected for the French national team for the first time. I also remembered a goal I scored in Warmuz, the action that preceded it. Everywhere, I remember beautiful memories, matches, moments.”
Since his departure from Canada last February, the former Montreal Impact coach has resumed his activity as an assistant with the Belgian team (as he had already been between 2016 and 2018): “I remain an assistant with the Belgian selection. I thank coach Roberto Martinez for reinstating me in the staff. I have Belgium, Amazon, I am very good for the moment. Sincerely, I do not feel any lack. We’ll see what the future holds for me, I’m waiting quietly for the projects that will be proposed to me in the future”
