Former Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has called out France and Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé out for major criticism following his inability to help France get to the semi-final of the ongoing UEFA Euros tournament. Mbappé and his fellow France national team players could not contain the zealous Switzerland team and eventually got knocked out of the competition following a penalty shootout between the two nations after finishing the match 3-3 in ordinary time.
According to Van Gaal, there are different types of players and while some are gifted technically, others usually make use of there teamwork abilities to ensure the overall successful outcome of the team’s positive results. The 69-year-old said that Mbappé is a talented player and one that has a huge talent but insisted that he needs to learn how to play with his teammates better.
The former United boss cited that there were some moments when all Mbappé needed to do was to pass the ball but because he tried to be too individual, it cost the team and they were not able to benefit from his technical ability. He, however, concluded that Mbappé would need to be a generous team player for both his sake and for his team.
