Article 1: Mbapp: “France is not the best championship in the world, but I feel responsible for helping it grow”
League 1 PSG Forward speaks for ‘Esquire’ magazine
Kylian MbopThis is the September cover of the magazine Search In Spanish, he talked about everything: the 2018 World Cup (with surprising revelations about France), which he still considers to be Not at the height of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi (And Hollande does not have him), the advice he gave that Neymar should be better accepted in France, his goals in the future and his opinion on Lig 1.
“France is not the best championship in the world. But I have always felt responsible as an identity player Help the league grow“.
“I played in front, I played left and right. With all the diligence, I think not everyone has the ability to change positions like this every year and maintain excellent performance at the highest level. It did not fall from the sky. If I talk about the stuff I was given in my teens, it’s there. I was able to work on my weak points, but above all to perfect my strengthsBecause they have always told me that you are going to win only through your strength.
“We were lucky to have a young team. We were completely unconcerned. We were just a group of guys. Baker does not deal with all bakers. You do not have to eat with your friends every night to succeed. “
For me this is not an end, it is an end. Now I don’t even think about that trophy. I never see photos of the World Cup before I go to sleep. Honestly, people on the street come to me and say: ‘You are the world champion, grace, grace’ ‘.
“If you tell yourself that you will do better than them, it violates the ego or determination: it is unconscionable. Those players are incomparable. They have broken all the laws of statistics. They had ten, fifteen extraordinary years. Just as the baker compares himself to the best bakers around him, you always compare yourself to the best in your game. Who makes the best croissant, the best painkiller or chocolate? I watch other great players ’games to see what they do. I know how to do this, but can anyone else do it? I think other players see me too. I think football players are motivated to elevate their game just like that Messi was good for Ronaldo and Ronaldo was good for Messi“.
“In Brazil they are more festiveVery serious in France. It is not good to show your emotions here. People think they are ignoring PSG because they play poker. I think you are starting to understand. At first it was hard for him because he felt it was a shame. When he arrived, they put his face in the Eiffel Tower and asked why he was playing poker six months later. In France, people know what you have, but do not need to see it. They want to see you play football with a smile“.
“This is his second year and we know him. This is the beginning for him. I’m glad he did. ”
“I think so. If your face is anywhere in the city, anywhere in the world, it sure is. Being a star is a status, but it doesn’t make me a better human being than others. “
“An amateur gives you so much love, but sometimes too much love, and It may disrespect your privacy. We give life to people because every three days we give them joy and give them our time. It is not possible to expect a normal life, but a little respect for personal life can not be heard much, I think. “
“In top football, No one will make a hole for you or say you are capable of doing things. It is up to you to convince yourself that you are. Ego, self-love, is not the desire of the stars, but the desire to transcend oneself and give oneself the best.
“It was the best game of my career because it was perfect. I helped my team in both attack and defense and was successful in creating and finishing my plays. I won 90% of my duels, if the point is right. Throughout the game, I never had a moment of depression. ”
“From a young age I was always in the locker room. Listening to tactical speeches and different perspectivesBecause, football is made up of different perspectives. I learned that endurance and I think it helped me because being a coach Put yourself in someone else’s place. I think I have the gift of doing that. It helps in football because if you are a player you usually only think about yourself, your own career. For example, I can see when something in a game cheats on a fellow player. And I can assure him“
