Former OM and Chelsea scorer, Didier Drogba defended Kylian Mbappé, the target of much criticism in recent months.

Kylian Mbappé has been the target of much criticism in recent months. Between his desire to leave for Real Madrid during the last summer transfer window and his failed Euro with the France team, the player experienced a big period of doubts. But Mbappé now hopes to turn the page and finally start his season. After having set the record straight about his future at PSG, the 2018 world champion set the record straight on the pitch by scoring a decisive penalty against Belgium last Thursday as part of the League of Nations .

While in Marseille to play a charity match at the Vélodrome, Didier Drogba spoke about Kylian Mbappé’s level and the criticisms he was subjected to. The former OM and Chelsea striker was keen to defend the Parisian player. “We’re a little harsh on him, we often forget he’s young, he’s still learning. Is that a reason to be bored already? We get bored very quickly here, “said the former Ivorian striker in an interview with Téléfoot.
