Mbappe targets scoring record with PSG next season

Mbappe targets scoring record with psg next season0

After tying the record for five consecutive Golden Boot trophies that were set by Jean-Pierre Papin, Kylian Mbappe stated that he has his sights set on breaking the Ligue 1 record for finishing as the league’s leading scorer in six consecutive seasons next year.

Mbappe finished the season with 29 goals in the league, which was enough to put him atop the scoring statistics for Ligue 1 once again. PSG’s final game of the season was a 3-2 loss to Clermont, and Mbappe scored one of those goals.

The Frenchman was recognized as the best player in Ligue 1 earlier this week, winning the award for the fourth consecutive year.

Since his transfer to PSG was made permanent in 2018, the 24-year-old has ended as the top scorer in the league every year since then. He will share the Golden Boot with Wissam Ben Yedder of AS Monaco for the 2019-20 season.

“What about my top scorer award?” I have a lot of joy. We came out on top and won the title. Even now, I have the most points and am the best player. Mbappe, who is also the all-time leading scorer for PSG, expressed his delight at the news.

It is true that it was at the conclusion of the season, after we had won the title, that it was a personal objective of mine, and I was able to accomplish it.

“I’m going to be remembered forever, and that makes me happy. However, I still have the next year to defeat Jean-Pierre Papin.

Papin was the first player to win the Ligue 1 Golden Boot five times, and he did it between 1987 and 1992 when he was playing for Olympique de Marseille. Three other players have won the award five times overall, but Papin was the first athlete to win it five times in a row.

Mbappe’s statements are another obvious sign that he will stay despite rumors of interest from Real Madrid, a club that has courted him in the past but failed to get the French striker. Mbappe already vowed to honor his PSG contract, so his words are another clear indication that he will stay.

Mbappe will be approaching the final year of his contract next season despite the fact that he signed a contract extension with PSG until 2025 last year. However, Sky Sports stated that the extension was just a two-year deal with a player option for a third year.
