Didier Deschamps has chosen Kylian Mbappé as the new captain of the Blues
Mbappé will be the new captain of the France team after the retirement of Hugo Lloris.
Didier Deschamps seemed to have two possibilities as captain of the France team: Kylian Mbappé or Antoine Griezmann. “There is one criterion, and it is legitimacy, the coach announced on Monday. The exchange that I will have with the players will feed my thinking. It is something that should happen naturally. Didier Deschamps decided. Hugo Lloris’ successor will be Kylian Mbappé.
At only 24 years old, the striker with 66 caps and 36 goals in the blue jersey will therefore wear the armband, carried by a dazzling World Cup and an even more assertive status as a leader. The new era will begin on Friday evening (8:45 p.m.) against the Netherlands, at the Stade de France, as part of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
