Kylian Mbappé has been officially appointed as Paris Saint-Germain’s vice-captain.
This was confirmed by the manager of the Ligue 1 champions, Christophe Galtier.
Galtier was speaking after PSG’s 7-0 win over Pays de Cassel in the Coupe de France on Monday night.
Mbappe wore the captain’s armband for the game and scored five goals as they hammered the sixth-tier side at RC Lens’ Stade Bollaert Delelis.
After the game, Galtier was full of praise for the French striker.
“Kylian is a goal scorer. He is obsessed with scoring — clearly.
“He scored quite a few last year, 56 or something for the calendar year. It was important that he and Neymar played the whole game here,” Galtier said.
Marquinhos is the captain of PSG.
