Paris Saint-Germain has officially named Kylian Mbappé as the new club’s vice-captain.
The club’s manager, Christophe Galtier, confirmed this on Monday following PSG’s 7-0 win over Pays de Cassel in the Coupe de France.
Mbappe wore the captain’s armband for the game – in the absence of Marquinhos – and netted five goals as they trounced the sixth-tier side at RC Lens’ Stade Bollaert Delelis.
On the Frenchman’s performance, Galtier was full of praise for the 24-year-old.
“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.
