‘Not time to make waves’: Mbappe on new PSG deal

first_img“For now, I am ready to play football,” Mbappe said after scoring in his team’s 6-1 rout of St Etienne in the French League Cup quarter-finals.“It is January, it’s the start of the final sprint where there are titles to play for. Therefore it’s not the moment to make waves.”Mbappe has a deal at PSG which runs until 2022.Recruited in the summer of 2017 for 180 million euros ($202 million) from Monaco, Mbappe is now believed to be worth 265 million euros, according to the Swiss-based International Centre for Sports Studies.“The club is calm and serene, everyone is pulling in the same direction, so talking about things that are off the pitch is not very realistic and not very beneficial for the team,” added Mbappe who now has 19 goals for the season.“I am a footballer, not an accountant. I play, I do my job. I try to help my team.“If I am the most expensive player in the world, everything is fine.”In December, Real Madrid coach, and fellow Frenchman, Zinedine Zidane remarked that Mbappe had always said it was his dream to play for the Spanish side.

Riise stresses need for more goals

first_img Now former Liverpool full-back Riise believes Fulham must be far more cut-throat when on the ball against Chris Hughton’s Norwich, to lead into Saturday’s imposing league trip to Arsenal. “We had 60 per cent possession (against Sunderland), we dominated possession but we didn’t take our chances,” Riise told Fulham’s official website. “We should be more experienced to keep control of the game, especially when we got back to 2-1. “We’ve been conceding too many goals, especially from set-pieces. “We have to do better in games like this, and now we’ve definitely got to get the win against Norwich.” Fulham boss Meulensteen hopes loan signing Clint Dempsey will quickly hit the form that so endeared him to Craven Cottage regulars in his first stint at the club. United States forward Dempsey, on loan from Seattle Sounders, scored 50 league goals for Fulham between 2007 and 2012. And after two quick appearances at the start of his second Fulham stint, Meulensteen expects him to hit full form. “It won’t take long for him to be right back up there,” said Fulham’s head coach. “He’s just got to keep working, but that’s his character and that’s exactly what we know he will do.” Clinical finishing is the only route to Barclays Premier League safety for Fulham now, according to John Arne Riise. Press Associationcenter_img The Fulham defender has challenged his side to sharpen up in front of goal for Tuesday night’s FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich at Craven Cottage. Rene Meulensteen’s side were swatted aside 4-1 by Sunderland on Saturday, in a dispiriting league defeat in west London that drags Fulham straight back into the relegation picture. last_img read more
