Jerome Rothen, a former star player for Paris Saint-Germain, has provided one important reason why Didier Deschamps will not choose forward Kylian Mbappe as the next captain of France. Rothen was speaking to Didier Deschamps.
Hugo Lloris, the longtime captain of Les Bleus, announced his retirement from international football earlier this week, and Didier Deschamps has not yet named a replacement for Lloris as captain of Les Bleus.
Because of this, there has been a lot of discussion on who Deschamps will choose to head the team that won the FIFA World Cup in 2018 going forward.
Rothen, on the other hand, is of the opinion that Deschamps will not select Mbappe as France’s next new captain due to the fаct that the former Monaco star is too loud.
Mbappé would take over as captain of the Blues if I were in charge, and I think he would do a great job. But knowing Didier Deschamps and the way he operates, I think he will not put him as captain,” Rothen remarked on the football podcast Rothen s’enflamme (translated from French to English by Twitter).

Mbappe gives PSG president, Al-Khelaifi one condition to remain at club
Kylian Mbappe, a forward for Paris Saint-Germain, is said to have presented Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of the club, with a significant condition that he must meet in order to remain at Le Parc des Princes.
According to El Nacional, Mbappe has made it abundantly clear that he is unhappy with PSG and has requested that Al-Khelaifi secure a signing that would prevent him from leaving the French Ligue 1 champions in the near future. Mbappe wants Al-Khelaifi to ensure that he does not leave the club in the near future.
According to the article in the newspaper, the France international is unhappy with the present manager of PSG, Christophe Galtier, and has reportedly asked Al-Khelaifi to hire Zinedine Zidane, who was formerly the manager of Real Madrid, as the head coach of PSG.
When Mbappe’s contract with PSG expired in the summer of 2022, it was widely speculated that he would sign for Real Madrid instead.
Despite this, the former star of Monaco made the decision to remain in Paris and signed a new contract with the Parisians that will last for three years.
Mbappe has lately stepped up to defend Zidane in the wake of statements made by Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Federation (FFF), regarding the Real Madrid great.
PSG set an ‘unprecedented’ record thanks to Lionel Messi
PSG’s salary fund for the 2021/22 season has reached a record 45% increase, to 728m euros, as a result of the club’s recruitment of a series of high-profile rookies during the summer transfer window of 2021, beginning with the extension of Lionel Messi’s contract. This brings the total amount of the salary fund to a record high.
According to the information provided by Football Benchmark, PSG was need to spend 728m euros in order to cover the player salary. When compared to the previous season, the wage fund of the Prince’s Park squad has seen a significant increase of 45%. This is the greatest compensation fund that has ever been documented in the history of football.
PSG is claimed to have attracted a number of prominent young players in European football during the summer transfer window of 2021, which is believed to be the cause of this ‘galloping’ spike in player production. The most notable of these is unquestionably the acquisition of Lionel Messi. The Argentine superstar traveled to France in order to play professionally without being restricted by a contract. As a result, the amount of money that PSG is required to spend on Messi’s salary might reach up to 29m euros.
As a result of this number, El Pulga is one of the three players at the Park of the Princes who earn the most money, together with Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. In addition to Messi, Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Gianluigi Donnarumma or Gigi Wijnaldum all enjoy large salary at PSG.
In addition to this, it was reported in October 2022 by L’Equipe that the Paris Saint-Germain Football Club had incurred a record deficit of 370m euros for the fiscal year 2021/22. In addition to the contracts mentioned above, the extension of Mbappe’s current deal is the primary fаctor that led to this substantial financial loss for the French business magnate.
As a consequence of this, UEFA levied a fine of sixty-fivem euros against PSG for Ƅreaking the rules regarding financial fair play. When this club competes in the Champions League, PSG will make an upfront payment of 10m euros, and the equivalent of 55m euros will be removed from revenue.
PSG made an offer to Mbappe in May 2022 that was worth up to 600m euros over the course of a three-year contract. This was done in the hopes of convincing Mbappe to remain in the French city. Even after receiving such an unprecedented degree of treatment, the striker who was born in 1998 has recently expressed that he is still unhappy at PSG owing to disagreements with the management.
