Whether he shines or gropes, Kylian Mbappé is passionate.
Again and again.
If he has been going through a difficult period in his young career in recent weeks, the current Ligue 1 co-top scorer (12 goals with Rémois Boulaye Dia) remains, for some of the French, an exceptional player.
But her popularity rating seems to be suffering slightly from her less breathtaking performance and the lack of pleasure that can be seen on her face lately.
Give us back the real Mbappé!
This is in any case what reveals a poll carried out by Odoxa, for RTL and Winamax, to be published this Friday morning.
This indeed reveals that its positive image has deteriorated slightly compared to November 2019, especially in terms of humility.
If 77% of the French believe that Kylian Mbappé is sympathetic (-3pts vs. November 2019), 66% that he is spectacular (-5pts) and 61% that he is charismatic (-5pts), they are only 57 % (or 9 points less) to find him humble.
His professionalism does not suffer any dispute.
The French do not question his investment since 77% feel that he is focused on football, 69% even deeming him hardworking.
A figure even rising to 78% among football fans.
Her star fades
Faced with this exceptional player with a potential worthy of the greatest, 72% of French people see him become the best player in the world in the years to come.
They are even 79% among football fans.
But his star pales since this opinion drops by 9 points among the French and 10 among football fans.
To explain its current difficulties, however, fewer people believe in the overload of the calendar (15th) or too much space given to extra-sporting activities (22nd).
For 47% of the French, his bad patch is explained above all by physical difficulties or in the game within PSG (34%), or even by disturbances related to his future (30%).
A beneficial start?
Yes for 76% of respondents
Regarding his future, 49% of French people think he should stay in the capital club while 55% of football fans believe he should leave at the next summer transfer window, to join Real Madrid (28%) rather than Liverpool (8%) or another club (19%).
But if Kylian Mbappé left PSG, 76% of them would find it beneficial for his personal progress (76%) and for the France team (57%).
On the other hand, it would be regrettable for Ligue 1 (59%) and for PSG (69%).
