France Deschamps Says Mbappe Not Happy With His Current Form

Didier Deschamps, the head coach of France, indicated on Thursday that Kylian Mbappe isn’t happy with his recent performances as he announced his team for a Euro qualifier against the Netherlands and a friendly against Scotland.

Despite having seven goals for Paris St. Germain in Ligue 1, Mbappe has struggled this season.

On Wednesday, PSG lost 4-1 to Newcastle United in the Champions League, and Mbappe had little impact at St. James’ Park.

“He’s not at his best, just like his club’s results.

Obviously, with all he’s capable of doing and his influence, that has a big impact on his team,” Deschamps told a press conference.

“This isn’t the first time, nor the last, that he’s had periods when he’s underperformed.

“Perhaps he didn’t have a typical summer preparation.”

Deschamps is certain that Mbappe will recover.

“But I’m not worried about him and his competitive spirit. I know him well.

He must not be satisfied at the moment. Even when he does well, he wants to do better,” he said.

On October 13, France will travel to Amsterdam to take on the Netherlands.

With a maximum of 15 points, they are the group B leader.

On October 17, the Les Bleus host Scotland in Lille.
