[P] . Xiahou Kanqiu . Published by creators in the field of sports in Henan on July 23, 2023 at 22:47:11+ Follow Mbappe's mere absence from the preseason has already caused a sensation in French football, with multiple media outlets paying attention to the news that Mbappe did not travel with the team to Japan to start a warm-up match. Soon, there was support from the women's football team and the players' union. Moreover, according to Spanish media reports, even if the management of Greater Paris requested Mbappe to stay on the bench for the new season, New Paris coach Enrique would not agree, He will insist that Mbappe appear in the starting lineup and will not follow the management's arrangements. He needs to prove his control over the team.
With the support of the French Players' Union, they believe that Mbappe's absence from pre-season training matches is a pressure exerted by the team on Mbappe, hoping to convince him to accept the request to leave or renew his contract in this way, which has constituted a moral kidnapping. And Paris women's football player Li Katoto posted a message in support of Mbappe on social media platforms, saying "Come on, Mbappe". This is also the first player in the Paris team to express support for Mbappe, and there may be more voices expressing support in the future, which is also a common situation in French football.
For most French fans, Mbappe is the number one and core figure of the French team. If Mbappe is left on the bench for a long time, they are worried that it will affect the team's performance in next year's European Championship. Another crucial reason is that the actual owner of Greater Paris is the Qatar consortium, not from France, so the fans' sense of belonging is not very strong. As for many players participating in it, it is to prove that players should enjoy the rights regulated in their contracts, and any moral kidnapping behavior by the team will not be accepted by the players' union.
So, from this point of view, it is difficult for Paris' behavior to have an advantage in public opinion, and now it is only a pre-season training match, not a formal league or Champions League match, which has caused such a sensation. If such a situation occurs in the new season, Paris may become a target of criticism and face public pressure from fans, At that time, it will be difficult for them to have a better way to deal with the problem of Mbape. They can only accept Mbape to play, and then get all the salary and bonus, and leave as a Free agent.
. In fact, the "cold treatment" of players is very common at the critical moment of player renewal, which is also a common method used by many teams. For example, when Real Madrid dealt with Bale's contract issue, they placed Bale on the bench. Of course, there are still differences between Bale and Mbappe, and there are also significant differences between Real Madrid and Paris. Therefore, some fans at the time thought that Bale's inability to play was a great pity, but most fans understood Real Madrid's behavior. However, it seems that the same handling method used in Paris cannot be understood by fans.
