Parisian Kylian Mbappé came to plead his case before the Disciplinary Committee of the Football.
the suspension of Kylian Mbappé (PSG) for three matches in Ligue 1, for his gesture of humor against Nimes on 1 September, was confirmed on appeal, said Monday the French Football Federation (FFF).
The 2018 world champion had been ruled out for having done justice himself after an ugly move by an opponent, Téji Savanier, who also saw his suspension of five matches (including one by the revocation or suspension) confirmed on appeal.
It remains a suspension match to be served in the league for Mbappé, absent against Saint-Etienne (4-0) and Rennes (1-3) and who will still miss the reception of Reims Wednesday (21:00) for the 7th day of League 1.
The 19-year-old will be able to return to the French courts – he was not suspended during his team’s 3-2 defeat at Liverpool in the Champions League – on the eighth day, at which PSG moves in Nice on Saturday (5:15 pm).
At the time of the announcement of his sanction in first instance, in early September, the 1998 world champion Bixente Lizarazu, consultant for Telefoot, had made him the moral: “Kylian Mbappé will have to control himself, he goes very fast, the defenders in delay will + cut +, he will have to learn to control himself because, if he is expelled and is suspended three games, it is a problem for the PSG.
This, in any case, did not prevent the “king” Pelé to pay a new tribute to the young Parisian, Monday on Twitter. While Mbappé had thanked him for sending a jersey to his autographed Santos club, the Brazilian replied, “You’re welcome, I think you have something special, I only have two tips for you. give, always stay humble and keep working hard, I’m sure you’ll do it. “
