I wasn’t informed – PSG star speaks out on losing vice-captaincy role to Mbappe
Paris Saint-Germain defender Presnel Kimpembe has insisted that he was unaware of teammate Kylian Mbappe being made the club’s vice-captain.
Mbappe wore the captain’s armband and led PSG to a 7-0 thrashing of USC in the Coupe de France on Monday.
The 24-year-old is now viewed as vice-captain to captain Marquinhos, who did not feature in the match.
This led to reports suggesting that PSG held talks before removing Kimpembe from the vice-captaincy role and handing it over to Mbappe.
However, Kimpembe has now dismissed those claims.
The 27-year-old defender said (as quoted by Get French Football News): “Over the past few hours, I have been able to hear and read a lot about myself."
“Therefore, I wish to make things clear to avoid spreading false information about me." "I was not made aware of this decision; this is completely false.”
