If PSG is challenged by OM and Lens at the top of Ligue 1, the same cannot be said for Kylian Mbappé compared to the other players in the championship. The Bondy prodigy was again named player of the month to end 2022, improving his personal best.
The best French player without a doubt, in the world possibly and in Ligue 1 for sure. Kylian Mbappé has accomplished a phenomenal year 2022, whether with PSG or with the French team. The striker finished as the world’s top scorer in the 2022 calendar year with 56 goals. This notably allowed him to carry PSG on his shoulders at the end of the 2021-2022 season. This season, this need is less present among the Parisians since Lionel Messi and Neymar are doing a quality exercise. This does not prevent Mbappé from still being on the front of the stage.

The Frenchman is the league’s top scorer with 13 goals. His performances are always noticed with the feeling that without him PSG are less successful. Just look at his match against Strasbourg at the end of December where, barely back from Qatar, he provoked and converted the winning penalty at the last second while Paris was going around in circles. A considerable influence in Ligue 1 that his peers do not fail to underline over the months, which further accentuates the aura that surrounds Kylian Mbappé in France, his incredible performance in the final of the 2022 World Cup against Argentina having reconciled him with some fans who felt he had taken the big head unnecessarily. We also saw it last Sunday in Rennes, where his entry into play with Paris Saint-Germain was acclaimed by the Breton fans present at Roazhon Park. Mbappé is already a legend and records are falling one after another.
Ah, we’re fine!
New year, even Kylian! This is the 8th time in his career that he has won the UNFP Player of the Month Trophy 😱
🏆🏆🏆🏆 🏆🏆 🏆🏆 (it’s starting to do a lot, we’ll soon have more room…)

The latest concerns the title of best Ligue 1 player. The UNFP has indeed announced that Mbappé has been named player of the month for the period November-December 2022. The Parisian is ahead of Seko Fofana and Benjamin Bourigeaud in the votes. It’s his first victory of the season in this particular competition that he loves so much. Indeed, November-December 2022 consecrates him for the eighth time in his career player of the month in Ligue 1. No player can say the same in the history of French football, or at least of this trophy. At 24, Kylian Mbappé is ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (5 wins), Franck Ribéry, Eden Hazard and Javier Pastore (4 wins). This is the seventh time that this has happened to him since his arrival at PSG, a symbol of his disproportionate ambition even for a seemingly anecdotal trophy. And the public loves it as we can read on social networks.
Where before some were quick to hit him on it, Kylian Mbappé is now warmly congratulated in France when celebrating this player of the month trophy: “ He deserves it. he’s an amazing player. Looks like he’s dancing on a wire. His game is also very powerful. A real “at the same time”. Well done Kylian », « There is no need to vote as soon as he is nominated you can give him, it’s simpler I think », « At 10 you give him a new double mvp trophy “. And we are not even talking about the weight taken off the pitch by number 7 of PSG and 10 of the France team, who in a single message on Twitter sparked a revolution at the French Football Federation, leading to the Noel Le Graët’s probably definitive shelving. Sacred Kyks.
