Didier Deschamps talks about Mbappe’s future in France.

The French national team manager Didier Deschamps talked about Mbappe in an interview with RMC Sport. The former French international also clarified that he never asked Mbappe to leave Paris Saint Germain. He also talked about the fact that the level of competition in Ligue 1 is not bad, and that the more top-level matches Mbappe plays, the more he’ll improve.

It’s bull***t to say that I said [Mbappe] had to leave France. I never said that, neither for him nor for anyone else. This is not to denigrate Ligue 1. Compared to the requirements of the France team, which is the top international level, the more they will be used to top-level matches in their daily life in the championship or the European Cup and the closer they get to the level of requirement,” Deschamps said.

Interestingly, Deschamps also said that teams like Bayern Munich and Real Madrid face weaker teams in their respective leagues. He also placed the responsibility of choosing a new club on Mbappe’s shoulders and revealed that even if he stayed in Paris, it won’t be a problem.

This is not the case at Real [Madrid] when they play other teams in LaLiga. This is not the case for Bayern [Munich] in their league. Kylian will choose, it’s his choice. It’s not a problem if he stays in Paris,” Deschamps concluded.
