Recap: Manchester United vs Fulham FC 1:2 (Sport1)
For the fourth time in his career, Kylian Mbappé was named France's Player of the Season (after 2019, 2021, 2022), once again establishing himself as one of the greats to have played in the French league. He passed Zlatan Ibrahimovic who also won the award three times.
"I want to thank the players, the staff, everyone who works behind the scenes," said the 24-year-old Frenchman, "I always dreamed of making a mark, I never dreamed of winning so many things so early, but I'm happy to represent my country." Mbappé is signed in Paris until 2024 and said "I'm happy here and I'll be here next year too", but did not elaborate on 2025.
In total, Paris Saint-Germain had four representatives in the French league team of the season: in addition to Mbappe, there are of course Leo Messi (16 goals, 16 assists) and defenders Nuno Mendes and Ashraf Hakimi. Of the four, only Leo Messi did not attend the ceremony.

However, France claim that the PSG players did not want to attend the ceremony at all, as they are all in a low mood due to the condition of goalkeeper Sergio Rico, who fell from a horse and was hit in the head, and in fact the team did not want to show a celebratory mood due to the goalkeeper's condition.
"It's a pleasure to win," Mbappé said, "but first of all I want to express my concern for Sergio Rico, my heart is with him, we're all here with him, thinking about him." Rico's family said: "We are waiting for the results of the tests, which we all hope will be positive and that we will be able to tell about the improvement in his condition. We appreciate all the expressions of concern and love."
