The day after the knockout round of the Champions League between PSG and Barcelona (1-1), Kylian Mbappé posted a photo on his social networks showing him all smiles alongside Lionel Messi. The opportunity for him to express his happiness at having played against one of the best players of all time.
But what could they have been talking about? Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé obviously exchanged a few words on the occasion of the knockout stages of the Champions League played Wednesday at the Parc des Princes between PSG and FC Barcelona (1-1). The day after this match, the French world champion posted a photo on his social networks showing him all smiles alongside the Argentine genius.
Not a clue on Mbappé’s future
With a caption to say the least succinct: an emoji showing two hands in the air, an emoji with hands folded in prayer and ellipses. Some may see it as the symbol of a transfer of power. Since its publication, this post has generated a lot of reactions. In less than an hour, it had already been retweeted more than 10,000 times and “liked” more than 100,000 times, eliciting reactions from supporters around the world. Above all, it should be seen as a way for Mbappé to show that he was happy, once again, to play against one of the best players of all time.
This should not be seen as a clue to the future of Mbappé, under contract with PSG until 2022. “Thank you to football for giving me the opportunity to live this dream on a daily basis,” wrote the former Monegasque in Instagram story.
