Mbappe benched by club decision

Mbappe benched by club decision

Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim says Kylian Mbappe was left on the bench against Dijon because it was “the decision of the club”.

Mbappe, who scored 24 goals last season, was an unused substitute as Monaco won 4-1 in their second Ligue 1 game of the season.

The 18-year-old France international played in their opening game against Toulouse but has been subject to increased speculation over a move to French rivals Paris Saint-Germain ever since.

To recall, the French media reports that Mbappe is very close to joining the Paris-based side on a transfer fee which can reach the figures of Neymar’s move.
